Christ at the Center FAQ

The Christ at the Center cards launch today! I’m so excited to share this newest resource with you!

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. And they’re here just in time for the holidays!

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about these cards. Have another? Ask in the comments!

What is the target age range for these cards?

These cards were written with kids ages 4 to 12 in mind, but they can definitely be used well into the teenage years.

What is the best way to use these cards?

I wrote a whole blog post about this very thing! You can check it out here!

How much do they cost?

They’re $36/set and you should keep your eyes peeled for a launch day promo code! 🙂

How long do they take to ship?

Orders generally ship within 2 to 4 business days after the order is successfully placed, but I’m often able to ship them out sooner. Shipping generally takes three to five days within the US.

Do you ship internationally?

I do ship to Canada, the UK, Australia, and the Philippines currently. International shipping in expensive and I’m working to find a more affordable solution than the USPS. I’m also hoping to expand our international shipping further in the future!

Will these cards be available as a digital download?

Due to copyright protection, none of the Tiny Theologians products that are available in print will ever be available digitally.

What is your return policy?

Unused cards are eligible for return if they arrive back to me in the same condition in which they were shipped. Shipping is non-refundable.

Using Christ at the Center in Your Home

The Christ at the Center cards launch TOMORROW, and I can’t wait to start shipping these sweet cards out to you to use with your kiddos in your homes!

Many of you have asked the best way to use these cards, and the possibilities are endless! But here is a list of some of my favorite ways to use them with different ages groups:

Bible Overview

The simplest way to use these cards is to read through one every day as a family. You can add them to your morning basket routine, breakfast table time, or bedtime ritual. By reading through one card a day, your little ones will gain a great overview of the big story of the Bible in just about two months!

Biblical Context

As you read through other biblical stories and resources, it could be helpful to pull out the correlating card and help your kids understand the context of that specific story. For example, if you read the wonderful book Love Made by my friend Quina Aragon, you’ll be talking all about the creation story. What a great way to give your kids the biblical context for that story by pulling out the genesis card from your Christ at the Center deck!

Books of the Bible Memorization

As your kids get older, they’ll be able to memorize the books of the Bible in order. There are a lot of songs that can help with this process, by the way! Check out YouTube for some fun ideas. The Christ as the Center cards can be a great way to test memorization. Shuffle them up and challenge your kids to put them back in order!

Genre Matching

Each card has an icon that marks the biblical genre of that book. At the back of the deck there are cards that explain what a genre is and explain how to identify and interpret each genre. You can create a matching game by pulling out the poetry genre card and challenging your kids to find all the books of poetry in the Old Testament. What a fun way to introduce something as complex as genre to young kids!

These are just a few of my ideas on how to use these cards, but I want to hear from you! What are you favorite ways to use these cards? Or, what are some of the ways you’re most excited to use them? Let me know in the comments!

Christ at the Center | A Sneak Peek at Genesis

If you’ve been around the last few weeks, you know how excited I am to share with you my latest Tiny Theologians project – Christ at the Center cards. 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.

The aim of these cards is to help your little ones (and big ones!) discover Jesus on every page of Scripture. From Genesis to Revelation, we want to help kids understand that the entire Bible is pointing to one person: Jesus Christ.

This set of 70+ cards walks your kids through every book of the Bible, giving them a summary of that book’s content and showing how it points to Christ. For example, the book of Genesis card tells kids that Genesis is all about the beginning. Here’s a sneak peek at the content fo that card:

“The word ‘Genesis’ means ‘beginning,’ and that’s what this book is all about. Genesis tells us the story about the very beginning of the world and the God who has no beginning. in Genesis, God created the entire universe and created mankind to have a special relationship with Him. Though the first people broke their relationship with God through disobedience, God made a promise: one day He would send a Savior who would save them from their sin. God made this promise again and more specifically to a man named Abraham. God told Abraham that he would be part of His plan to bring the Savior into the world, and that through Abraham’s family the entire world would be blessed. This was the first time God made this promise, but it was certainly not the last.”

Each card for each book of the Bible is designed to give a summary, but also to point your kiddos forward to the central theme of the Word of God: Christ Himself!

Each card also includes the author of that book of the Bible and the biblical genre of that book. Additional cards at the back of the deck explain things like what a biblical genre is and why it’s important, and how understanding the author of any given book helps us understand the original context of the writing. These cards can go as deep as you want them to, but are simple enough for your littlest ones to benefit from

And they’re coming your way on Friday! Be on the lookout for their big launch at 8am EST on November 15! ⠀⠀⠀
