When I was a kid, I loved a good mystery! I was always reading books like The Boxcar Children or The Baby-Sitter's Club Mysteries. There was just something so fascinating about looking at the clues and trying to put together a case. I suppose even as an adult this is something I enjoy. And it's not just me, there is a reason that for years these types of books and tv shows have appealed to people of all ages.
As much as I have loved these ideas of mystery solving, I cannot say that it ever occurred to apply those same ideas to the mysteries of the Christian faith. And yet, it's genius, so I'm happy that someone did:
About the book:
Cold-Case Christianity for Kids (David C. Cook, October 2016)
Between the ages of 8 and 12, kids often start to wonder if Christianity is true.
In Cold-Case Christianity for Kids, detective J. Warner Wallace draws readers into the thrill of high-stakes investigation by showing them how to think rather than telling them what to think. In this children's companion to the bestselling Cold-Case Christianity, detective Wallace gets kids excited about testing witnesses, examining the evidence, and investigating the case for Christianity. Includes author illustrations and links to a website where kids can download activities, fill in case notes, and earn a certificate of merit.

This book is fabulous. First, it appeals to kids in that its coming from something that they might already be interested in- solving mysteries. But this age, kids are in that stage where no longer do they just believe you because you said so and you're the parents. They start to question things for themselves. They want to know the how and the why. They want to discover things for themselves. This book allows them to do just that. It takes a look at factual evidence to help them to discover the truth that we try to teach them. When children are given the chance to explore these 'mysteries' on their own, I think it gives them a much stronger hold to their faith. They are given the chance to know WHY we believe what we do and give them a basis for defending our faith.
This truly is a fun, unique book that I for one have enjoyed looking through with my son, and I believe many kids will enjoy as well! If you have a little one questioning their faith or you just want to help build that strong foundation, this is certainly one book worth checking out.
