"My prayer is that God will use this book to both motivate and equip you to help your kids develop convictions about their faith."--From the foreword by Sean McDowell, PhD, Biola University professor, speaker, and author of more than eighteen books, including A New Kind of Apologist
"I can't think of a more relevant or more needed book for parents raising kids in today's culture. This book on apologetics will lead parents in critical conversations that will help grow and guide kids to be lifelong followers of Christ."--Kristen Welch, author of Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World
"Hey parents: Do you want to reduce the chances that your child will follow the crowd to the point of rejecting Christ and the values and truths you hold so dearly? Then you need to have the conversations that Natasha Crain so brilliantly describes in this book. Prevent heartbreak later by reading and heeding this book now!"--Frank Turek, PhD, president of CrossExamined Ministries and author of I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist and Stealing from God
"May this book lead to thousands more Moms and Dads engaging with their kids through an intelligent faith. And may there be tens of thousands more kids who feel loved because the adults in their lives take their questions seriously."--Jeff Myers, PhD, president, Summit Ministries
J. Hebner5 Stars Out Of 5Not just for parents but for anyone who wants a deeper understanding about defending God.October 25, 2017J. HebnerQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0As a parent of kids who are old enough to start asking questions about our Christian faith, I HIGHLY recommend this book. Not only has this book given me easy to understand, although not trivial, answers to questions that have come or may be coming from my kids, it has also given me confidence and a deeper understanding of God.
I've always felt very intimidated by apologetics since I'm not even close to being an expert in theology and science related topics. This book broke down those topics in a way that I was able to make sense of, and with the help of the Conversation Guide at the end of each chapter I feel prepared to explain to anyone the evidence presented here.
Use this book to help explain the tough questions that kids or adults may ask of you, or simply use it as a resource to grow in your own understanding of God. I couldn't put this book down and now that I'm through with it, I can't wait to pick it up again. I can see myself using this book as a reference time and time again. I'm really looking forward to the next books in this series.
Thank you Natasha Crain for this invaluable resource.

Jill5 Stars Out Of 5Great Parenting ResourceOctober 18, 2017JillQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is a must read for all Christian parents who want to equip their kids with a solid faith. This book tackles all of the tough questions that your kids will face about God and the Bible. Natasha Crain has a gift for writing in a clear, succinct style, that everyone can understand. She takes what may seem like complex topics/issues and explains them in a way that you can understand, and in a way that you will be able to teach your kids. At the end of each chapter is a set of discussion questions that you can use with your kids. This section was very helpful and can help spark meaningful conversations in your home, perhaps around the dinner table. I highly recommend this book.

Lynette S5 Stars Out Of 5I wish I'd found a book like this when my kids were younger!October 18, 2017Lynette SQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Talking With Your Kids About God is a resource that I wish I had found earlier in my parenting journey. Often as parents, we want to pass on our faith to our kids, but we think we don't know enough or we're just not sure how to start the conversation. Natasha Crain communicates complex theological, scientific and philosophical ideas so that parents can first understand them and then be able to discuss them with their kids. Each chapter of the book is written around a specific question about God, and provides enough information to give apologetic "newbies" a solid starting point for conversations. To get a feel for the counter perspective, Crain includes some common objections as voiced by every-day skeptics in their own words. The handy, bullet-point reviews and discussion starters found in each chapter are great helps. Ideas for tailoring the questions to be more age appropriate for your child are also included.
Crain leads parents into the art of asking good questions, even more than giving correct answers, using engaging personal stories. Helping kids work through questions to come to truly understand the answer on their own is an invaluable skill. Parents, grandparents, Sunday school teachers and youth workers will all benefit from this book.

Janet Trenda5 Stars Out Of 5Not just for kids, but great conversations for adults, too!October 17, 2017Janet TrendaQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I so appreciated this book. It is more than a book on apologetics. Natasha not only talks about the importance of knowing what we believe- but how then shall we live that faith out. She brought it in for a landing with the importance of our faith causing our actions. Thats what Christianity should look like.
I have struggled for so long with the division in the Church between the Truth side and the Action/Justice side. It not only stains our testimony to the world, but it feels like each side is grabbing half of Jesus and pulling Him apart- all the while claiming to be the Real Jesus. Jesus never made a choice one for the other. He is always All Truth and All Grace All the time.
Thank you, Natasha Crain, for bringing such a balanced and practical book on apologetics- good for conversations with children, but also with adults!
Rebecca5 Stars Out Of 5Talking with Your Kids About God: 30 Conversations Every Christian Parent Must HaveOctober 17, 2017RebeccaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Natasha Crain's book, "Talking with Your Kids About God", is a vital resource for all Christian parents. As a Director of Children's Ministry at a church (infant through 5th grade), I will be using this resource myself and encouraging parents to do the same. I believe every parent with kids of any age should read this book to equip their children well in the present or future.
The book was very easy to read and went pretty quick after I picked it up. Interesting stories and examples coupled with strong, clear, and logical explanations supported by sound evidence made the book informative yet entertaining and enjoyable. She is very thoughtful and knowledgeable about explaining how nature, the universe, life on earth, and morality reveal the existence of God with validity. She also tackles the tough and often misunderstood subjects of religion vs. science, the trinity, the attributes of God, if God is loving and just and what that really means, differing religions, free will, and evil.
I really liked that when Natasha Crain discussed a topic, she made information clear (especially regarding any scientific evidence) and that you didn't have to have a background in biology to understand what she was talking about. I was also very happy that she encouraged readers to present these subjects to their children as young as elementary-age in language and ways they can understand since most apologetic material is usually geared at students and adults.
I also loved that each chapter gave specific conversation points that parents could discuss with their children. It encouraged parents challenge children to apply what they've learned to their lives.
With so many teens and college students (as well adults) leaving the church and their faith behind, it's important for parents to intentionally discuss topics that are covered in her book with their children before they are fed the lies of this world. Equipping children with tools to be able to defend what they believe will only strengthen their faith and help them stand strong when school, teachers, professors, and peers try to attack it.
