the 21 toughest questions your kids will ask about Christianity by Alex McFarland

As a mom of two very young kids, I know this book is covering questions that I’ll be hearing in the not too distant future.  Part of me had to laugh over the examples given at times, because I could absolutely “hear” kids talking that way!  These questions were compiled through “interacting with families, children, teens, and college students” and you can really feel that as you go through the book.  While the questions are ones that all Christian parents should feel comfortable responding to, they aren’t necessarily “simple” or “easy”.  That’s the beauty of questions from your kiddos – they don’t really think a whole lot about “proper” ways to ask, they just ask.  And we have to make sure that we always remember that they probably didn’t ask because they wanted a full out dissertation on right or wrong, they just want a simple answer.  I appreciated that the chapters went through how to respond, both on the simple level, and also on the deeper level (for the kids who want or need more detail).

This book is great for parents, but would also be great for people working in youth ministry or around kiddos who will ask questions.  It gives great advice, and has such great thoughts for how to process your responses!

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher, and was asked to provide an honest review.  I was in no way required to write anything positive, the thoughts and opinions expressed here are completely my own.
