Hundreds of everyday topics and cartoons spice up this kid-friendly book to assure 8- to 12-year-olds that God's Word is relevant to their lives.
Most kids don't realize it, but God's Word has a lot to say about the things they care about most-and this lively book leaves no doubt about it. Covering more than 300 everyday topics in conversational, engaging, one-page units, 8- to 12-year-olds will get biblical perspective on such topics as: homework, dieting, anger, sports, classmates, the telephone, puberty, careers, siblings, rules, self-confidence, world events, sleep, friendship, nature, movies, embarrassment, tattoos, integrity, and knowing God, plus many more.
Each page of this kid-friendly book illustrates what a particular topic has to do with the Bible, what the Bible says about it, and how the Bible's teaching applies to readers, so that they begin to understand how relevant God's Word is to them. And with 200 original cartoons spicing up the presentation, What Does the Bible Say about That? is quite simply an unforgettably fun book for elementary-age kids-and a great conversation-starter for adults who know them.
