Big Truths for Young Hearts

Bruce Ware has a great book out that was just recently released. Big Truths for Young Hearts began as bedside devotions that would happen on a nightly basis when his daughters were young.

Here's a brief summary:
Equips parents to guide their young children through all major doctrines in an understandable, chapter-a-day format.

Sure, it’s easy to teach your children the essentials of Christian theology when you’re a theology professor. But what about the rest of us?

With Big Truths for Little Hearts, Bruce Ware, (you guessed it!) a theology professor, encourages and enables parents of children 6–14 years of age to teach through the whole of systematic theology at a level their children can understand. Parents can teach their children the great truths of the faith and shape their worldviews early, based on these truths.

The book covers ten topics of systematic theology, devoting several brief chapters to each subject, making it possible for parents to read one chapter per day with their children. With this non-intimidating format, parents will be emboldened to be their children’s primary faith trainers—and perhaps learn a few things themselves along the way.

Justin Taylor has more info on his blog about this new book!

We received our book last week....and I can't wait to use it with my children!
