Every Age Can Delight in Doctrine

At The Good Portion Books we delight in the doctrines of God because knowing God is what we were created for. God reveals himself to us through the pages of Scripture so that we can know him. This is true no matter how young or old we are.

We’ve written our series to encourage women to immerse themselves in the depths of Christian doctrine for the enjoyment of knowing God. Women from 12 to 112 will benefit from our books. But you can never start too young on the quest to know God. That’s why we want to recommend a new book for toddlers and preschoolers by Bethany Darwin, the former children’s ministry director of the United Christian Church of Dubai. It’s called Sing and Play Big Bible Truths, and it covers many of the doctrines that we cover in The Good Portion Series.

In Sing and Play Big Bible Truths you’ll find songs, stories with hand motions, games and activities, short Bible verses, themed snacks, and simple arts and crafts all working together to reinforce big Bible truths—doctrine. With chapters like “The Bible is God’s word,” “God is good,” and “Jesus died on the cross,” your child will be a theologian in no time.

Order Sing and Play Big Bible Truths and get weighty truth into the minds and hearts of your little ones.

We don’t have to linger long in the text to see examples of this aspect of Jesus’ character. But what does Jesus have to do with justice?
