About the book:
The Radical Book for Kids (New Growth Press, October 2016)
A kid-sized explorer's guide to faith and life
The Radical Book for Kids is a fun-filled explorer's guide to the Bible, church history, and life for boys and girls age 8 and up. Along with examining some of the most exciting realities in the universe, the handbook is vibrantly illustrated and chock-full of fun facts and ideas. Deep truths are communicated to elementary and middle-school aged kids while stimulating their curiosity and sense of adventure within a gospel-centered framework.
This power-packed book is "radical" in more ways than you might think! It is "radical" in the sense of the original meaning of the word, "going to the root or origin." The Radical Book for Kids will take children on a fascinating journey into the ancient roots of the Christian faith. But it's also "radical" in the more modern sense of being revolutionary. Kids read about men and women who learned to trust Jesus and stand for him---displaying radical faith---even when everything seemed against them.
But The Radical Book for Kids is also "radical"---meaning fun or cool---in the eyes of a child. Kids read about ancient weapons (and how to make one), learn about jewels, create pottery, discover ancient languages, use secret codes, locate stars, tell time using the sun, play a board game that's 3,000 years old---and more.
Check out the table of contents, skip around, or read straight through. However a child chooses to explore it, The Radical Book for Kids will open new vistas for their imagination and help to make straight paths for their feet.

"The Radical Book for Kids" is a colorful, jam-packed, hardcover book that children will love paging through and picking out various things to read about. This is a collection of readings and facts that children will want to delve into and learn about. So many topics are covered including Passover, Martin Luther, star of wonder, just to name a few. My daughter sat down with this book and flipped through a few pages and then became excited over a few of the pictures and began reading page after page. The did you know sections were her favorite as she loved to share the facts with the rest of the family and would read aloud little tidbits. This would make a great coffee table book as children and adults alike will enjoy paging through this.
