Long before we reach adulthood, the gospel ought to be shaping our lives. Paul taught the core truths of the gospel in his letter to the Galatians, and this collection of interactive readings for preteens applies those truths in understandable ways.
Each reading begins with a key verse and then highlights one element of the gospel in everyday terms, followed by questions and activities that reinforce Pauls teaching. Meade guides young readers to a full picture of Gods saving work, as well as a real understanding of other doctrinal concepts such as justification by faith alone, the priority of Scripture, the requirements for apostleship, and the relationship between the old and new covenants.
For parents and teachers who want to awaken young hearts to a lifelong commitment to the gospel, Gods Mighty Acts in Salvation is a great resource. This is a companion volume to Gods Mighty Acts in Creation.
Anne5 Stars Out Of 5September 29, 2010AnneThis devotion is based on a collection of talks she gave to the children at her church while her pastor was preaching from Galatians. She addresses a variety or points from Galatians including who wrote Galatians and to who, Paul's authority, freedom in Christ, salvation plus nothing, faith producing works, and real fruit. I loved the entry that she wrote about Abraham and Sarah and how Sarah thought God needed help in keeping the promise He made about them having a child. It is in reference to Galatians 4:28. This entry addresses the false teacher that Galatians were listening to that they had to work to enjoy God's favor. Rarely as I read these books, I did come across an example that was not exactly the way I would have put it to my children. The example that comes to my mind from this book was just a little more blunt than the way I have been teaching my children to say things. I know I sometimes am particularly sensitive to blunt speech, often to a fault I think. Starr Meade's heart is very apparent through all of her talks and there is love and grace in the entries in this book. I loved so many of her illustrations that gave me pause to think--things I hadn't considered before. I highly recommend this book and God's Mighty Acts in Creation. I think that they would be most appropriate for 8-12 year olds. It is such an encouragement to me as a parent to find good books that I look forward to reading with my children that I know will help them understand the truths that I so dearly want them to know in their hearts. Please note that I was given a complimentary copy of this book for review by Crossway Books.
kd4 Stars Out Of 5September 8, 2010kdStarr Meade is a great benefit to me. I saw this in the Crossway catalog about a month ago and knew I wanted to have it in my hand. Got it last week. I will be using these as great resources as I continue to study and write this curriculum.The two that I have in my hand are Gods Mighty Acts in Salvation and Gods Mighty Acts in Creation. I have had my head in creation now for a couple of weeks, plugging along at those lessons, so this was perfect timing. The Salvation one is basically a commentary/walk-through of the book of Galatians. Both books point to the gospel and Jesus.These books are written for kids 8-12 and I really think they are matched well for that age. They are about 1-2 pages in length, perfect for attention spans
