My son (almost five years old), seems to be the most successful at stumping me. Answering his questions about God, the Trinity et al, in a manner in which he can understand, is one of the most intricate and sensitive things to come across. This is more difficult than going toe to toe with a staunch atheist. He, and other children his age, are most inquisitive; this is some what of a virtue lost in people as they grow older—or marinate too long in front of the television. I can use all the help I can get, that’s why I purchased these books:

Big thoughts for little thinkers:

1. The Trinity
2. The Mission
3. The Scripture
4. The gospel

The thought did cross my mind that some adults (including atheist) may even benefit from this reading. Nonetheless, if these books can get by Fred Sanders, they must be good. He says:

I had nothing to do with this book, and found it by chance. But it is a book after my own heart. Not only does it present the Trinity without ever using any of those analogies that I find so distracting and off-the-subject, but it presents the gospel along the way, as a natural outgrowth of discussing the Trinity. Is that perfect? I actually recommend it for reading with very young children.

Thanks for the information. My daughter is already past that stage but these books look like great gift ideas.
I wanted to get your opinion on a list I put together after talking and watching other Christians talk to atheists. The link is here
I think you'll get a kick out of it.
Take care, Jim
