These books are great. (We have the whole set.) They tend to get the best responses from our kids when read with us (at least at first), and really catch our kids off guard (in a good way) by way of exciting them to engage their minds and explore deep conversation. I haven't seen anything else like them and would definitely recommend them to any adults (parents, etc) seeking to actively train-up their kids in "logic" and "theology".

Very good, but not sure about this 6 Oct. 2013
By Viv - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The doctrine is spot on, and concisely and simply presented, and the book is beautifully illustrated. But to be honest, the family structure really weirds me out. Boys are bears and girls are geese and a goose and a bear are married? We have so many animal stories for our daughter (Berenstain Bears, Franklin, Little Critter, Beatrix Potter series, etc.) and I can't recall any that have multiple species within a family. Maybe I'm too easily distracted, but the setup completely derails me from thinking about the content, and there isn't any background info on the story (other than that these are characters Dr. Craig created for his children) to explain the "unusual" family structure.

I love the prayers and the spiritual and educational value, so if having the family be of mixed species doesn't bother you, I recommend it. And, I confess, this was our first purchase (on sale), so perhaps I'm missing something from the earlier books.

Thank you, Dr. Craig! 11 Aug. 2013

We absolutely love the "Attributes of God for Children" series Dr. Craig has written! I think we now have every book in the series.

He is able to take (often abstract) concepts and make them understandable to even the youngest little ones. The illustrations are beautiful, as well.

Our family loves these books and I know you will, as well!
Serves Only to Conclude the Series & Does Not Stand On Its Own 23 Mar. 2015
By Josh Olds of Life is Story - Published on Amazon.com
This tenth (and last) book in the What is God Like? Series focuses on the greatness of God and serves to summarize the entire series. William Lane Craig, known for his academic debates and apologetics textbooks, breaks down the nature of God with simple terms and beautiful illustrations in a way that’s meant to foster further discussion with your child.

Hopefully, you’ve been checking Life is Story regularly and have noticed these reviews popping up every few days. I have long been a fan of Dr. Craig and used his writing extensively throughout my undergraduate and seminary days. When I discovered he had written a children’s series, I knew I had to read them and, thanks to the great folks at Biola University, I was provided with review copies to do so.

This final book in the series, The Greatness of God, does not introduce any new attribute but instead serves as a summary of the entire series. While the other books can stand alone, if you choose to buy only one and start with this one, you’ll be missing out on everything and left feeling like the book never really did anything. I guess that’s my only complaint with this book. While the others contained some powerful, in-depth teaching, this one is missing any sort of that and so just seems out of place. I know that it’s summarizing, I know that it’s wrapping things up, but I think it could have been done better.

As for the series as a whole, you can see how it developed over time. The first few books a bit shorter and simpler than the rest of the series. Once the series becomes necessarily more complex when it tackles God’s aseity in book 4, you begin to see a shift in the books to be a bit longer, take time to address a common misconception, and just overall be a bit deeper.

Let me take some time to state this as clearly as I can: If you have young children, you need to get these books. There are no better books on the market for teaching children about God. Dr. Craig finds the balance between being simplistic and having simplicity, managing to bring clarity to difficult subjects rather than ignoring them for the sake of it being easier. These books challenge young children to ask the difficult questions and grapple with the answers.

I warn you, if you’re an average Christian, you’ll find yourself challenged by these books as well, and you’ll learn how to better communicate the Gospel and the nature of God to non-Christians than you ever could before. This series is an absolute treasure. Thank you, Dr. Craig, for writing them. I do hope that more children’s books are forthcoming.

Great book, great series 20 Nov. 2013
By D. Teran - Published on Amazon.com

Great book for kids. Even for some adults. This book was a nice culmination of the previous books. My son enjoyed them so much that although he liked this one he was kinda sad because this was the end of the series. Great book, great series.
Dr Craig's books are so accessible and loved by children 12 May 2015
By Tommi - Published on Amazon.com
Dr Craig's books are so accessible and loved by children. In this book Dr Craig tackles a tricky subject. Gods greatness.
Children inevitably ask " if god is so great, why can't we see him". Dr Craig explains in a manner adults can understand the ontological argument. God is so infinatly great that we, as fallible humans,can't imagine how great he is. But we can have a damn good stab at imaginings and write lucrative books on the subject.
Craig encourages the child to ask questions, but nothing too hard or awkward. With the right guidance these books help the Christian parents children to hoover up doctrine, and feel afraid to ask genuine questions when they gain their logical critical faculties. Most kids will have this beaten out of them by teenage years and Dr Craigs books are a great way to infect the child's mind before it is formed into his particular brand of gibberish. Stick a pile of Craig's garbage in front of your child and by age 9 they will be chanting and gesticulating and believing in talking donkeys, if not in talking geese.
