My Thoughts: You might be surprised at how young children are when they begin questioning, struggling and wondering about biblical truths. My oldest son isn't even ten years old and we have already had deep, meaningful conversations about biblical topics that I never even thought about until college. Maybe the reason so many children leave the faith once they finish High School is because so many questions were left unanswered as children and they end up finding what they are looking for in secular, humanistic views. Rather than dismissing my child's genuine questions about the Bible and it's truths, I face them head on. I don't fear his questions because they have led to powerful soul-searching and change already in his young life. This book is an excellent resource for kids because it shows them that it is okay to have questions and that the tools are readily available in the Bible, you just need to search for them.
I find the forensic approach that this book takes intriguing for young tweens and teens.The images in the book are simple and hand drawn which took a bit to get used to at first but once you get into the book, you are so enthralled with trying to figure out the case, it doesn't seem to matter much. The book follows a group of students trying to figure out a case concerning a skateboard. Throughout the case the students are exposed to the process of detective work. This is then related to the need to investigate the Bible to search for the truths that we need to live our lives. I appreciate the way this book presents the Bible and the need to dive in and search it. We are to study to show ourselves approved and today too many people rely on what they have been told and have not searched out the scripture for themselves. This is an excellent book for any tween or teen!
