The Radical Book for Kids
Did you know that the first meaning of “radical” comes from the Latin RADIX, which means “a root”—the source or origin of something? This book will take children deep into the ancient roots and origins of the Christian faith. Because as children grow up, they should also grow down—letting the Bible sink its roots deep into their lives. Today the word “radical” also means “extreme, drastic, revolutionary.” And this book is radical in that sense too! Children will read about men and women who learned to trust Jesus and stand for him even when everything seemed against them. How did they do it? Radical faith. But there is more–while children explore and grow in their radical faith, they will also find that this book is radical—“excellent, cool”—fun. Kids will 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, and play a board game that’s 3,000 years old—and more.
Read this book any way you’d like. Check out the table of contents, skip around, or read straight through. But as you read, remember—unlike normal trees, all the roots of our faith grow out of the Tree. The one on which Jesus suffered and died in the place of sinners. Everything in The Radical Book for Kids points to him: the radical Rescuer of rebels.
