    This book is awesome to read to your children before bed time, I know a lot of times in church or bible study when we are studying the bible it is hard for young children to understand what the bible is saying. This book is awesome because it has awesome stories from the bible that young children can understand. I believe in Jesus is so awesome to read. I received a book called: I Believe in Jesus By John MacArthur Published by Thomas Nelson free from http://www.booklookbloggers.com/ for my honest opinion.

    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through HarperCollins Publishers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255 : Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

    I Believe in Jesus is an excellent book for young children to be introduced to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Not only are they made aware of what Jesus did on the cross, but they are introduced to who God and the Holy Spirit is and how all three [God, Jesus, Holy Spirit] are one. It also tells about Adam and Eve and how sin originated in all of us through their actions.

    Each page adds important information into a young childs mind of what the Bible teaches us about God, creation, man, and our Savior, Jesus. In addition to the narration, there is the relating Scripture verse for every entry. The verses support what is being said throughout I Believe in Jesus. Along with the textual content, there are the amazing illustrations. The illustrations bring color, life, and beauty into each and every page. I highly recommend I Believe in Jesus to all young readers and their parents.

    Beginning with creation, the book tells how God created a perfect world, people chose to sin, and how every person since then is also sinful, but God had a plan to forgive us. Then follows a very brief retelling of Jesus' birth, his perfect life, his death and resurrection, wherein Jesus took the punishment for our sins so we can be forgiven and go to heaven. Then we are told how this gift of forgiveness can be ours--by believing and receiving--and led in a prayer "if you are ready." The concluding pages tell how to show our acceptance of God's forgiveness (baptism, reading the Bible, praying, and obeying), and how the Holy Spirit will help us. Each page includes appealing illustrations and Bible verses/references for additional study.

    This book is advertised as being written for children ages 2-5. I read it with my two and four year olds. They seemed to understand the words, and when I read the prompting questions (for example, "Have you ever noticed how hard it is to always be good, kind, loving and unselfish? How hard it is to obey?") of course they answered yes to every one, so the logical conclusion then is that they also answer yes when you read "Would you like God to forgive you so that someday you can live with him in heaven?" and prompt them in praying the sinner's prayer, even if they have no concept or understanding of what that really means or "if they are ready."

    While I think the message of this book is a good one, the subtitle Leading Your Child to Christ and cover copy (i.e. "Share the gospel with a child using this beautiful picture book...and allow God to use you to change their lives forever!") could make it seem like "all I have to do is read this book to my kids, get them to pray the prayer, and they're saved." There is a lot more teaching and training that needs to be done to help a child truly understand their need for a Saviour. I think it is important to be careful and considerate of the intellectual maturity of children and how that plays a role in their understanding of and assurance of salvation. (A book that has been formative in my thoughts about this is Don't Make Me Count to Three! by Ginger Plowman, particularly Appendix B: How to Lead Your Child to Christ.) At the very least, I think the actual age appropriateness of this book is 6-12, depending on the maturity of the child.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for this review.

    I Believe in Jesus, written by John MacArthur, is a beautiful book written as a resource to use with children to lead them to the Lord. The picture book contains bible stories of God and creation as well as Jesus, his birth, life, death and resurrection. The book does an awesome job of explaining the three parts of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit and the roles they play.

    The books also covers sin and forgiveness of sin. There are two words in the Bible that tell us how we can have a place in heaven. This is a gift from God and all we have to do is believe that Jesus die for us and rose again. The second is to receive Jesus as our Savior and asking for His forgiveness.

    This is a wonderful book for children. The recommended age is 2 5 but I feel it would be helpful even for children a little older. The younger child will find the pictures very pretty. There are several Bible stories within the book as well as information to help a child understand the process of becoming a christian, all of which are very clear and easy to understand.. There are bible verses that go with each part of the story and additional bible readings to explore more about what the stories cover. This is a book that would be very nice for anyone who works with children to have for that perfect time to help a child make the decision to follow God. The explanation of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit is so easy to understand.

    I received a copy of this book from Booklook Bloggers for an honest review.
