Q&R: Bible Study Materials for a 7-Year-Old?

Here’s the Q:

I am most of the way through “Why did….cross the road” and loving it. My question is after reading chapter 21, where can i find a good bible story resource for doing with my 7-year-old?

Here’s the R:

First, I’m so glad you’re asking this question. If we’re going to reduce hostility between religions, we need to stop pumping hostility into new generations – whether intentionally or unintentionally. Shifting from hostility to benevolence won’t happen by accident; as I explain in the book, it requires a historic theological, liturgical, historical, and missional shift (not to mention a spiritual one – which I explored in Naked Spirituality).

I have some good news regarding resources for introducing emerging generations to Christian faith … Some good friends and colleagues of mine are putting together a network especially dedicated to this challenge. Originally called “Children, Youth, and a New Kind of Christianity,” the group just unveiled its new name: Faith Forward.

Expect great things from this group – beginning with a conference in 2014.
