I’m so excited to share with you the newest discipleship tools for kids coming from the Tiny Theologians line! It’s a project that has been on my heart and in my prayers for the last two years, and I’m thrilled to be able to finally share it with you. For the last 18 months, I have been working with New Testament and Old Testament scholars (from former seminary classmates to former professors) to hone the content for these cards, and with early elementary educators to make that content accessible for kids.
One of the burdens I have as a theologian, parent, and church planter is for our circles of believers to see Christ as the center of the Word of God. He is the One who holds the entirety of the Scriptures together, the thread that is woven from beginning to end, and the fulfillment of every word of God. It’s Christ that brings the Word to life, both in Old Testament Expectation and in New Testament fulfillment. Which is why I have labored over these cards (in the community of those much brighter than myself) to help little ones understand the central role that Christ plays in every book of the Bible.
Christ at the Center is a set of 70+ cards that walk kids through each book of the Bible, summarizing its content, showing where it falls in the big story of the Bible, and (most poignantly) showing how each book points to Christ. It is my deep desire that these cards will help kids (and parents!) discover the Savior who is on every page of Scripture — from Genesis to Revelation. Plus, they teach kids all about things like biblical genre, authorship, original context, and MORE! They come in this beautiful and sturdy box that I just can’t get enough of. They’ll be here just in time for Christmas shopping. Set your alarms for November 15 and join me in celebrating Christ at the center of the Word!
