This is an outstanding summary of the gospel for children, covering with great thoroughness the topics: Who is God? What is man? What is sin? Who is Jesus Christ? – all with memorable, colorful art (no pictures attempt to depict the face of Jesus) and very well-done theological explanations that children 4-8 can understand very well. Some have called this the young child’s first Systematic Theology and we agree!
A unique book that does something we sometimes take for granted: it methodically teaches the Gospel of Jesus Christ to young children. Because it is simple, it is a great teaching tool as well as a reminder for adults. This is of no small importance because, as we learn from the first chapter of Romans, this Gospel is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes. It has a color picture for each major point and then has a page at the end with just the pictures as a memory device to help children recall these truths.
Endorsement by Tedd Tripp:
“This book is very special, the kind of book parents will want to read to their children again and again. It presents the Gospel in a straightforward, uncomplicated manner — explaining the truths of God, the Bible, sin, Jesus, the need for repentance and faith, and counting the costs of the Christian life, but in a way that both children and even adults will easily benefit from. I highly recommend it, and I look forward to having it on our church book-table.”

Note: Grace and Truth Books carries very few picture-books of this sort, because their contents are almost shallow. But The Gospel For Children contains a rich wealth of Biblical truth, explained simply and to children. Scripture references are in the NIV.
