Last year while visiting North Point, I spent a lot of money in bookstore! One resource I picked up was a series by Lee Strobel for kids linked to his “A Case for Christ/Creator/Faith” books. I picked up the following books:
I’m half-way done reading through “A Case for a Creator”. It would only take an adult 20-30 minutes to read through the whole thing. Each book is only eight chapters long and would make for a great small group study for older elementary kids. I’m looking to launch a prototype small group study for older elementary kids and I might use this as a resource. If I do, I’ll probably write some supplemental curriculum to guide the time we’re meeting together and the kids will have to read the chapters on their own each week. I’ve got a few hurdles to overcome, but I think it might be a good study.
I’m a big believer that kids need some theology/apologetics in addition to Bible stories and virtues. Sometimes this can all be done together, sometimes not. So, we’ll see what happens. Once I move forward on this, I’ll post an update and share any resources I might develop. Regardless, I figured you might be interested in checking out this resource.

I just received a ChristianBook.com flyer in the mail. I believe they are selling the entire set at a reasonable price. I was looking at it, so now I know I should do it!
I have an after-school Bible club at our public school consisting of ages6-11. I know some of the kids are on the young end, but I am really praying that the Lee Strobel books will be a good tool to use with them, as many are asking questions for how to defend their faith. Good luck to you Kenny! we are on similar paths here!
Cool. Good luck with that. Keep me posted on how that goes…
