The Radical Book for Kids


A kid-sized explorer's guide to faith and life

The Radical Book for Kids is a fun-filled explorer's guide to the Bible, church history and life for boys and girls age 8 and up. Along with examining some of the most exciting realities in the universe, the handbook is vibrantly illustrated and chock-full of fun facts and ideas. Deep truths are communicated to elementary and middle-school aged kids while stimulating their curiosity and sense of adventure within a gospel-centered framework.

This power--packed book is radical in more ways than you might think! It is 'radical' in the sense of the original meaning of the word, "going to the root or origin." The Radical Book for Kids will take children on a fascinating journey into the ancient roots of the Christian faith. But it's also "radical" in the more modern sense of being revolutionary. Kids read about men and women who learned to trust Jesus and stand for him -- displaying radical faith -- even when everything seemed against them.

But The Radical Book for Kids is also 'radical' -- meaning fun or cool -- in the eyes of a child. Kids read about ancient weapons (and how to make one), learn about jewels, create pottery, discover ancient languages, use secret codes, locate stars, tell time using the sun, play a board game that's 3,000 years old -- and more.

Check out the table of contents, skip around, or read straight through. However a child chooses to explore it. The Radical Book for Kids will open new vistas for their imagination and help to make straight paths for their feet.

My Review:

Fun, facts and engaging graphics make this a winner of a read. Beautiful hard copy edition with stunning illustrations that will appeal to any age -- even adults. And it's chock-full of interesting tidbits and a diverse combination of topics that will keep young readers returning to its pages again and again. I love the way the author has meshed high-interest, kid-friendly topics with solid biblical history. There are stories and biographies to read, questions to ponder and crafts to make. The starting point for many happy hours of fun.

My thanks to Litfuse Publicity Group and New Growth Press for providing me with a copy of this book.


  1. Sounds like one we could read to our almost 3 year old grand-girl :-) I'm determined to make her an avid reader like me...LOL!
