About the Book


You want to pass on your faith to your children. But in today's increasingly skeptical and hostile world, how can you prepare your kids for the challenges and doubts they will inevitably face? In a friendly, parent-to-parent voice, Natasha Crain brings clarity to this question by walking you through thirty essential conversations about God that parents and kids must have today, including discussions about

· the existence of God
· science and God
· the nature of God
· believing in God
· the difference God makes

Organized so that each chapter builds upon the last, this book provides a cumulative learning experience appropriate for home, church classes, youth groups, small groups, and homeschools. Every chapter has a conversation guide, and content is adaptable for use with kids from elementary age through high school.

"Talking with Your Kids about God is an outstanding resource for equipping parents with the techniques and knowledge they need to have effective conversations with their children about the truths of Christianity. Natasha Crain has done an extraordinary job of distilling a large body of material into readable and interesting chapters that can be tackled by topic. As a scholar in the field of science and religion, I was particularly impressed with her treatment of the scientific issues that intersect with the Christian faith. I'll be recommending her book to every parent I know."

Melissa Cain Travis, MA, author of the Young Defenders storybook series and assistant professor of apologetics, Houston Baptist University

"As a homeschooling mother, it is imperative to me that my children know what they believe and why. Rather than waiting for them to encounter the world's arguments by surprise, Natasha empowers parents to guide their children in asking crucial questions, reasoning through the answers, and taking ownership of their own faith. The curriculum-style format makes this a fantastic resource for homeschoolers, Sunday school classes, or small groups, equipping the next generation with the greatest gift we can give them: a deeply rooted faith that can withstand the storms of doubt, skepticism, and an increasingly hostile culture."

Rachel Bjorklund, homeschooling mother of four, Classical Conversations tutor
