**Disclosure** These books were sent to me free of charge for my honest review from my participation on the Z Blog Squad.
The Believe series by Randy Frazee is a powerful new tool for parents to use in helping their children of all ages develop their own personal relationship with Jesus. Zondervan has given me one copy of the Believe Storybook, Believe Kids’ Edition and Believe Student Edition.
Written for kids 8-12, Believe: Kid’s Edition is part of the national church-wide campaign led by bestselling author Randy Frazee that takes kids on a journey to become more like Jesus in their beliefs, actions, and character. They know the story of the Bible, but do they know what it means? Adapted from the ground-breaking new Believe campaign from bestselling author and pastor Randy Frazee, the Believe: Kids’ Edition takes kids on a thematic tour through the Bible and shows them how to think, act, and be more like Jesus. As children ages 8-12 walk through the three big categories of Christian life—beliefs, practices, and virtues—they’ll begin a journey that will take them closer to the heart of Jesus and deeper into the words of Scripture. They’ll learn what the Bible has to say about everything from the nature of God and the identity of Jesus, to prayer, worship, and the fruit of the Spirit. Foundational and faith-building, this book can be used by individuals or in conjunction with the all-church campaign.
This series can do just that! The introduction in the front of the book can help you greatly, it explains how the book is to be used. The parent is suppose to read each chapter to the child or an older child can do it independently. Then there are discussion added to the end for you and your child to discuss what was read. Each chapter is based on a key verse, key idea, and key question. There are also some simple illustrations that help bring each lesson to life. Geared for ages 8 and up.
The first ten chapters answer the question, “What do I believe?” The second ten chapters answer the question, “What should I do?” And finally the last ten chapters included is the question, “Who am I becoming?”
This book will inspire you to believe with your heart the word of God and help you to apply it to your daily living experiences. Also included, at the end of the book, are questions that can be used for a group discussion. And there are transitions, written in italic, that offer an explanation to the Scriptures.
