1. Cold-Case Christianity for Kids by J. Warner Wallace (Our review is here.)

2. God's Crime Scene by J. Warner Wallace (My daughter discusses this book here.)

3. The Case for Christ for Kids by Lee Strobel

4. The Case for Faith for Kids by Lee Strobel

5. The Case for a Creator for Kids by Lee Strobel

6. The Awesome Book of Bible Answers for Kids! by Josh McDowell and Kevin Johnson

7. Dr. Craig's "What is God Like?" God is Spirit by Dr. William Lane Craig- This book is the first in a series that teaches the attributes of God.  You can checkout the entire series here.

8. How Do We Know God is Really There? by Melissa Cain Travis

9. How Do We Know God Created Life? by Melissa Cain Travis

10. How Do We Know Jesus is Alive? by Melissa Cain Travis

How about you?  Are there any apologetics books your child enjoys that didn't make our list?  Please share in the comments!

Let Justice Roll Down Like Waters

Brian Fisher of Human Coalition writes the following in the subject blog post (his first of 2018).

Let 2018 be the year that we, as a massive movement of people who are concerned for true justice, rise up and restore the weak, the downtrodden, and the victimized – all for the glory of our God in whom true justice lives and breathes.

May God grant those of us concerned for the well being of families (men especially) the courage, motivation, and ability to do the above more so than ever this year.
