Who Is God?~Review


Who is God?  And Can I really Know Him?  Written by John Hay and David Webb, published Apologia.  Hard Cover, 252 Pages.

This beautifully constructed and well-written book is the first in a series called What We Believe.  There are only 10 Lessons in this book, but they are BIG lessons!  Each lesson is designed to last approximately 2 weeks but this is an incredibly flexible book and each lesson can take longer or shorter as needed.  Aimed at children between the ages of 6 & 14, and designed to be used independently or taught, depending on the ages of the children learning from it.

Here’s a few Lesson Titles to give you a small sampling of the topics covered:

  • Where Am I Building my Life?
  • How Can I Know What is True?
  • What is God Like?  (part 1 & 2)
  • If God Created the World, Why isn’t it Perfect?
  • Is Jesus the Only Way to God?

It’s suggested that children make a notebook while going through this book, to keep track of notes, scriptures and activities associated with each lesson.  Elements of the child's notebook would include:

  • The Big Idea
  • Words You Need to Know
  • Hide it in Your Heart
  • Prayer
  • World View Study
  • House of Truth

The introduction of the book has a handy sample lesson plan and a website and password to give you MORE resources to help teach this important subject.  The website includes Teacher Helps for each lesson and several downloadable note-booking pages for each lesson.  Also, there are many, many important links included on this special website including but not limited to: on-line study Bibles, books on Apologetics and movie/game reviews.

My favorite part of the book is the Short Story section of each chapter that shows this Godly worldview in a relevant and active way.

Apologia sells Who is God?  And Can I Really Know Him? for $39.00.  To see a sample lesson click here.  To see other topics in the What We Believe Series click here.
