During this time of quarantine, my two kids, Olivia age 10 and Jeremiah age 8, recently completed Cold Case Christianity for Kids, which is the first course in J. Warner and Susie Wallace’s Case Maker Academy. The course consists of an 8-chapter book where readers investigate a “crime scene” involving a mysterious skateboard. The investigation introduces children to critical thinking and how that translates to examining the writings of the New Testament Gospels. We are now moving on to the next course, God’s Crime Scene for Kids.
I highly recommend this material for helping to teach your children about the truth claims of Christianity.
I asked my daughter, Olivia, to provide a brief thought on the book. She said, “I liked how they made it a story so that I could understand what they were trying to communicate to me better.”
Below is a brief summary from the Cold Case Christianity website-
Are Your Kids Sure Christianity Is True?
Children between 8 and 12 are at the critical age when they start to ask if Christianity is true. Cold-case detective J. Warner Wallace knows the thrill of high-stakes investigation and presents the case for Jesus in a compelling way while training kids “how to think, not just what to think” as they examine their faith intelligently.
J. Warner and Susie Wallace have been training young people in the church setting for over a decade. J. Warner is a cold-case homicide detective who has been featured on Dateline, FOX News, TruTV and other crime related television shows. A former atheist, he is the author of Cold-Case Christianity, God’s Crime Scene, and Forensic Faith. J. Warner has a master’s degree in theological studies, and Susie has a master’s degree in speech pathology.
