New Book for Young People on God’s Existence

From Issue: R&R – June 2012

The assault on the integrity of the Scriptures in the last half century demands a proactive approach by Christians in an effort to protect and rescue the minds of our youth as they are regularly subjected to challenges to their faith. Hence, 10 years ago, Apologetics Press released a monumental volume that was designed to answer a very critical question often posed by young people: “How do we know the Bible is from God?”

But further, what child—growing up in a home where God is revered and His Word is respected—has not also asked the question: “Mom (or dad), how do you know God exists?” It’s an equally valid question that deserves an equally valid answer. But what should be a parent’s (or teacher’s) response? If we really believe what the Bible says—that each Christian must “be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you…” (1 Peter 3:15)—then we should be able to sit down with a child and provide an answer that is based solidly on the available evidence. It will not do to say simply, “Well, dear, we just ‘know’ in our heart that God exists,” or “Well, we’ve always been taught, and we’ve always believed, that God is real.” Those are not adequate  answers for a young, inquiring mind. We must do better. Every single child who asks the question deserves better!

With that realization in mind, we are extremely pleased to announce the release of the sequel to How do You Know the Bible is from God?—a book that was written to help parents and teachers “do better,” and to give each and every child the answer he or she deserves to such a vitally important question. Written on a 3rd-6th grade level, How do You Know God is Real? explores simple reasons why we can know that God exists. It will satisfy children’s curiosity and equip them to be able to defend their personal belief in God.

In its 13 chapters covering 68 pages, How do You Know God is Real? examines such topics as “the first cause,” “our unique Universe,” “amazing animals,” “design in the human body,” “evil, pain, and suffering,” and much more. The last chapter of the book brings the reader to the all-important consideration: “What does God mean to me?” In addition, the book is filled with gorgeous photographs, illustrative diagrams, youngster-oriented clip-art, and intriguing images. Children will be thrilled with the undeniable proof that God is real.
