This title isn't kidding....inside this book is definitely BIG truths! But these truths are foundational ones that every Christian should know. Sadly, most don't. Even though the targeted age is 5 - 8, I would recommend this for all ages.
Based on Westminster's Catechism, the 36 chapters follows a family as they try to teach their children fundamental Bible truths.
The authors' purposes for this book are:
- To teach children that they are created for God's glory
- To show some practical implications of this life purpose
- To repeatedly emphasize to children their need for God's grace to glorify Him
The only thing I would add to the suggested use of the book is to have your child memorize the verse at the end of each chapter. It's good to know the answers to the catechism questions, but even better to know WHERE in the Bible to back up those answers.
I would say that this book would be a great resource as a family devotional. One that could be used over and over. You would be giving your children a great gift---a Biblical worldview.
