For anyone looking for a fresh way to present the gospel to young children, Wow! The Good News in Four Words is a perfect resource. This whimsical and fun book outlines the gospel in a simple and memorable way (for both adults and kids!), using fun words to highlight the story. The book will present Creation/Genesis (Wow!), The Fall (Uh-oh . . .), Redemption/Jesus’ Life and Sacrifice (Yes!), Restoration/The New Heaven (Aaahhhh), ending with one last Wow because we get to go out and tell the Good News.


I really loved this book! It is marketed to children age 3-6 which I think is perfect because of the equal mix of writing and illustrations. The illustrations in this book are amazing! Very vibrant, bold and colorful. The illustrations alone would keep children very interested in the book. The message in this book is also great and breaks down some of the main ideas from the Bible into a way that is easy for children to understand. This would be a great book for personal use, as well as for use in a Sunday School or Children in Worship environment. And again, I have to say I just adored the illustrations, especially the animals.

Thank you to the publisher, Tyndale House, for sending me a copy of this book.
