Reviews - What do customers think about Beginning With God (I Can Know God)?
FANTASTIC!! Jan 4, 2007
This is absolutely foundational to a child's understanding about God as the Bible presents Him. This book teaches three of the essential Christian doctrines in a conversational way geared directly to children. Gorrell uses a question and answer format to basic questions about who and what God is, the significance of the Bible, and the doctrine of the Trinity. After each question and answer, a short scripture verse is sited, modeling to children the importance of relying on what the Bible says in shaping our views of God.
I especially loved the way that Gorrell dealt with the issue of the Trinity, a difficult concept to grasp for even adults. She presents it as simply as possible and talks of the importance and functions of each of the three members of the Trinity, all while emphasizing that there is only one God.
I also was particularly impressed with the way Gorrell included theological words and concepts such as inerrancy and inspiration, but still kept explanations and writing on the level of a young child. Gorrell has provided a perfect venue for familiarizing the reader with these words so that he/she has a foundation from which to grow in understanding.
My children also really enjoy this book and like to hear it read to them often. They enjoy being able to answer the questions before I read the answers.
I just can't speak highly enough about this book. I can't wait to purchase the other two in the series.
This book has changed lives Jun 12, 2002
It has - it has changed lives. It teaches about God - it tells the truth, doesn't give some airy fairy liberal nonsense. If you want your child to know the God of the bible for themselves books like this are excellent tools to add to your prayers. With God's power books like this can change lives and they have from Scotland to Brazil - there are people and families who have discovered the love of God and the truth of the Bible for themselves - Well done Nancy. Those who honour God he will honour.
