Jesus the Way
The Child’s Guide to Heaven
A delightful, inviting book, warmly urging young children to come to faith in Christ. Based on the author’s many travels in and around Jerusalem, Capernaum, Lebanon and Damascus, he shares stories which shed light on what it is to know Jesus. Simply worded, this makes superb read-aloud material for children ages 10 and under. Jesus the Way is a powerful presentation of the gospel for children of that age.
It’s a book that will definitely hold the attention of the youngest children as Hammond relates his experience of first entering his journey to the city of Jerusalem. Each of the first four chapters is a moving appeal to children to turn from sin to trust the Savior of sinners. The final chapter is addressed to those who have come to saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

About the Author
Edward Payson Hammond spent much of his life and ministry traveling the world to preach the Gospel, with a special emphasis upon children. His labors were honored by men like C. H. Spurgeon, Andrew Bonar, W. S. Plumer and multitudes of others. When he wrote letters to some of the leading ministers of the nineteenth century he asked their opinion about the vital subject addressed in this book: the conversion of children. Here are two of the responses he received:
“My conviction is that our converts from among children are among the very best we have. I should judge them to have been more numerously genuine than any other class, more constant, and in the long run more solid.”
— Charles H. Spurgeon
“In awakenings that have been given us, the cases of young people have been as entirely satisfactory as any cases we have had. If conversion be God’s work, in which the Holy Spirit reveals Christ to the soul, surely His work can take place in children as really as in the old.”
— Andrew Bonar
