Answering A Child (part 2)
Thanks for the input. Lots of that is going in the book (you'll all get thanked in the acknowledgments). Especially, thanks to Bob. That story is great! And it solves a problem I was having. I think it's really important to tell children that they are wonderful and that God treasures them and all that. You can't tell kids that often enough. But.... If that's the whole story, why did Jesus have to come? Bob's story really unpacks that in a way kids can understand (and adults too, for that matter).
Here's the next question:
"What is Christianity?"
Remember, you're answering a child.
