    Excellent resource to #TeachtheTruth

    So, what's all this craziness about?!

    I'm so glad you asked.

    Well, recently my son and I were blessed with the privilege of reading Janine Suter's description of why there is pain and suffering and evil in this world if our God is so good.

    In her book The Day the World Went Wacky, Suter crafts a creative retelling of the entrance of sin into the world via Adam and Eve and the effect sin has had on this world since then. Biblical truths set to rhyme in a way that children can begin to grasp these deep, foundational facts are accompanied by clever illustrations by Richard Gunther.

    As we read this book together, my son laughed and then at one point he got serious. After we finished it, I asked him what he thought of it. He said he liked it.

    I asked him to show me some of his favorite parts
    and tell me why.

    He said his favorite picture was one of Adam and Eve happily hanging out in the Garden of Eden before they committed that first sin.
    His reason? "Because Adam looks cool and Eve looks pretty."

    I asked him if there were any parts he did not like.

    He said this one part where people were stuck in a pool of sin made him sad.
    His reason? "Because all of those people are stuck in sin. That makes me sad."

    But then he said the next part made him happy again.
    His reason? "Because all of the people that were stuck in sin and sad are happy now since Jesus gave them new life."

    So, I think this review courtesy of
    my six year old son speaks for itself.
    What do you think?
