Book Suggestion – Big Truths for Young Hearts

August 15, 2011


I have recently been reading Bruce Ware’s book Big Truths for Young Hearts. Bruce is one of the most respected Christian scholars in the world right now. He is a professor at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and was president of the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS) in 2009. ETS is perhaps the most “heady” annual gathering of evangelical scholars anywhere in the world. What is remarkable, then, is that we have a book written by one of the most “heady” scholars out there on a level most 5th graders would have little difficulty understanding. For parents, you get all the deep, rich theology you could ever want in plain English. I have even been using it in my own devotional life and have benefited greatly from it. The book addresses each topic in 3-4 page sections (perfect length for a family devotional!) and covers such topics as “One God in Three Persons,” “God Has Made Himself Known,” and “Pain and Suffering in the World God Controls.” I can give no more glowing recommendation for this book than C.J Mahaney gave on the back cover:


“Imagine a respected theologian devoting himself to training a new generation of pastors and scholars in the seminary classroom. Now imagine him driving home at night to teach that profound theology in simple terms to his children at their bedsides. Now imagine this father compiling those bedside conversations into a book available to all pastors, parents, and children alike. Imagine no more. My friend Dr. Bruce Ware has done it.”
