In The Disciple-Making Parent, I have argued that one of the reasons parents are to lead the way in teaching their children is that we learn in the process. When something has to be explained to a child, the teacher must simplify it!
The Reformation ABCs book will help you both understand prominent figures in the Reformation and teach it to your young children. As we celebrate the 500th year of the Reformation in 2017, it is especially appropriate.
The book is both simple enough to read to a 4 or 5 year old but also will keep an 8 or 9 year old engaged. Of course, it includes the well known reformers such as Luther, Zwingli, and Calvin. But it also include less well known individuals such as Durer, Queen Marguarite, and Queen Elizabeth I. And Y stand for you. “You are the next Reformer.”
I could see this being used for family reading or even a short stint as family devotions. If you don’t know church history, it will serve as an appetizer to start the juices flowing.
It would make a fun birthday or Christmas gift to the family. Give it to the dad who is afraid of family devotions. Fun and simple.
