I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
Who do you say Jesus is? Better yet, who would your kids say Jesus is? Judah Smith has written Jesus Is ______ Student Edition to help your kids (recommended ages 10-14) understand more about who Jesus was and who the Bible says He is. He focuses on Jesus is a friend, is grace, is to the point, is happy, is here, and is alive. He uses loads of scripture, mostly from Matthew, and loads of real life examples to help kids understand Jesus.
The best part about this book? Apple LOVES it. She's even been reading portions to her brother (unprompted!). Judah Smith writes in a way that is totally relatable to the tween crowd. He is funny and he skips around so that they stay interested. She understands Zacchaeus in a whole new way after reading this book. Tweendom is such a crucial age. They aren't babies any more but they certainly aren't teens or adults yet. Their brains are working like never before and they are really beginning to "get" harder concepts. This is a really important time to help them understand who Jesus is and why we follow Him.
Imagine a really cool, young youth leader just having a conversation with your kid about Jesus. That's how this book came across to me. It is obvious that Judah Smith is passionate about bringing kids into a relationship with Jesus. He isn't pushing religion, he isn't pushing rules, he's using scripture to help kids understand what kind of person Jesus was and why He came. He wants to help young people understand what Jesus is still doing. Sound like something your kid would enjoy?
