What child—growing up in a home where God is revered and His Word is respected—has not asked the question: “Mom (or dad), how do you know the Bible is from God?” It’s a valid question. And it deserves an equally valid answer.
What, then, should be a parent’s (or teacher’s) response? It will not do to simply say, “Well, honey, we just ‘know in our heart’ that the Bible is God’s Word,” or “Well, we’ve always been taught, and we’ve always believed, that the Bible is the Word of God.” Those are not appropriate (or adequate) answers for a young, inquiring mind. We must do better. And each child who bothers to ask the question deserves better! In 2002, we announced the availability of Kyle Butt’s new book for kids, How do You Know the Bible is from God?, which was written to help both parents and teachers “do better.” The book was an instant best seller.
Now I am pleased to announce the availability of the revised edition of this extremely popular book. The original edition was the very first book we had published in a hardback version, and also was the first book we had published in full color throughout! The original was indeed a thing of beauty to behold. The revised version is even more so!
The original was an 8.5 x 11-inch book; the revised edition is a more “kid friendly” 8 x 8-inch volume. And while the new book contains the same trustworthy, reliable text as the first edition (which parents and teachers alike will appreciate), it also is filled with additional illustrations and crisp, fresh artwork.
The new 62-page book has a full-color, firm, laminated cover (designed to last a long time in the hands of a child), and sells for only $7.95. Truth be told, it would be a steal at twice the price.
In addition, several months ago, we also revised our children’s coloring book on dinosaurs (which always is popular with “the younger set”). Kids, as we all recognize, love dinosaurs. The coloring book not only gives them lots of dinosaurs to color, but also offers a variety of activities such as mazes, puzzles, connect the dots, and cartoons (featuring our famous mole-sleuth, Digger Doug, and his friend, Iguana Don).
The book, which is printed on crisp, white, crayon-friendly paper, will keep budding artists busy for hours. One of the greatest things about this particular coloring book, however, is that it doesn’t just “keep kids busy.” It also teaches them biblical and/or scientific truths about these “terribly great lizards.” [If you watch a child interact with the book, you’ll be surprised at how frequently he or she stops to read—not color.] At $2.00, this is a great gift for a child.
