Tackling the difficulty of helping children understand the significance of the cross, Jill Nelson clearly and carefully leads her audience through their plight (the bad news of sin) and the rescue promised in the Garden (the good news of salvation through the death and resurrection of Jesus). Gods Gospel presents the breadth of the gospel by including teaching on the Creator, sin, Gods promise, sacrifice, the law, the birth of Jesus, the sufficiency of Christ, the death and payment for sin on the cross, and the resurrection and promise of eternal life to those who repent and believe. By emphasizing key biblical truths written winsomely in a style children can understand, Gods Gospel is an excellent primer on the good news of salvation in Christ.
