God's Crime Scene for Kids: Investigate Creation with a Real Detective

amazon barnes & noble Christianbook.com Goodreads

Hone your reasoning skills as you investigate evidence in the universe to determine the most reasonable cause for everything we see in creation.

In this companion to Cold-Case Christianity for Kids, Jason uncovers a mystery in his grandmother’s attic. He and his friends, Hannah, Daniel and Jasmine, enlist the help of Detective Jeffries at the Jr. Detective’s Academy. Along the way, they develop the skills needed to investigate the mystery and the evidence of God’s existence. The cadets learn logical-thinking skills as they examine the contents of a mysterious box and the vast universe.

In God’s Crime Scene for Kids, real-life detective J. Warner Wallace shows kids ages 8 to 12 what skills are needed to solve Jason’s mystery, and at the same time looks at evidence in the universe that demonstrates God is the creator. Ultimately, kids will learn how to make their own case for God’s existence.

Hott Review:

Have a child with an analytical brain that’s having trouble with creationism? Cold Case Christianity for Kids is the book for you.

Cold Case Christianity for Kids could be a great book for many ages, probably many adults too because it uses a simple example of a cold case to walk the reader through not only how to solve a case but why there is only one solution. The only problem I can see is that I don’t know who I’d recommend God’s Crime Scene for Kids to. Definitely my teenagers. It’s a “children’s book” so they’d see it as being helpful and a quick read but still get a lot out of it. I’d probably recommend it to some new Christians who are having trouble with understanding how to “put it all together”. But for kids? I’m not so sure. I’m thinking of my 8-14-year-old nieces and nephews. I don’t know if they’d be able to read this without a parent or advisor helping them along. The pictures, callouts, and assignments throughout Cold Case Christianity for Kids make it a much faster read and easy for younger readers to enjoy.

As you can see, I’m back and forth on this 😉 the final answer is YES, I’ll absolutely give it to the kids. I know they’ll read it and while I’m sure they won’t understand all of it, I’m sure they’ll ask questions and become stronger in their relationship with God as well as their understanding of how and why.
