Overview

Children are the future of the church -- and pastors are always on the lookout for creative ideas for "children's time." Because abstract concepts are so difficult for children (and many adults) to grasp, it's very important to use simple, concrete methods of illustrating biblical truth. This resource offers a year's worth of ideas you can expand upon for great messages. Each nugget makes the scriptures understandable to children of all ages -- while having some fun in the process. The material also can be used in the home or for story time in Sunday school or day care settings.

Jim Kemp has a delightful ability to communicate the faith to children. With his images, lively style, and biblical grounding, pastors will find here a great resource for talking with children about the things of the Christian faith.

Dean of the Chapel and Professor of Christian Ministry

Duke University

I have been teaching "storytelling and preaching" for twenty years, and recently incorporated into the course a children's storytelling component. I found Kemp's ideas very helpful in their simplicity of format and challenging content. With his suggestions for sermon-direction, Kemp's book is a valuable tool for presenters, demonstrating how to use imagination and wrap a singular sermon thought around an idea that will readily communicate to children. This resource will help facilitate tellers' creativity and enliven the "storytelling time" with children (where the adults will be listening in as well).
