God’s Crime Scene for Kids by J. Warner Wallace and Susie Wallace. This book is such a wonderful way for kids to explore and learn about God and he really does exist. If you have a child that is at that age where they want to know more then this is a great book for them. I as a homeschool mom love it. It is a wonderful learning tool. It can be added into your homeschool work. I highly recommend this book for that young child in your life. I received a complementary copy of this book. This review is my honest opinion. 4.5 stars!

Do your kids love to investigate? Do detective work? Solve mysteries? This fun interactive study book is an exciting way to get kids into the Word and discovering things about God and life. As they team up with Detective Jeffries from the Police Department's Junior Academy, not only will they be solving the mystery of the box found in Jason's attic but also the mystery of the universe itself. The book consists of eight chapters that answer questions like, Where did the universe come from? Can God and evil coexist? And Where do our thoughts come from? As your child participates and interacts as a member of the team, they will learn important investigative skills, as well as, essential truths. I personally found this book exciting and enlightening. It's a follow up to the book first book in the series - Cold Case Christianity. It's written in a way that helps kids think for themselves about important issues, investigate to determine what is true about them, and make their own decisions based on their findings. There are also some really cool interactive online things to do, watch, and download. When you finish the academy you will receive a certificate. I would highly recommend this book. I was provided a free copy courtesy of publisher and LitFuse Publicity group to read. I was not required to review positively and all opinions are my own.

This companion book to Cold-Case Christianity for Kids begins back at the Junior Detective Academy where cadet Jason reveals he has a mystery in his own attic. The cadets are guided through the investigation by Detective Jeffries to uncover the evidence to solve Jason's mystery but also engage characters and readers in discovering the proof of God's existence. What I enjoyed about this book for middle grade readers is the inclusive point-of-view given to the reader. The reader becomes one of the cadets and is encouraged throughout the story to think alongside the other characters. The mystery is engaging but the factual evidence is presented in a way that is understandable and conclusive to readers. Throughout the pages there are opportunities for the reader to further engage in the story with CSI Assignment that leads readers to Scriptural references; Detective Definitions that present further opportunity for readers to learn about detective work and investigation; and Dig Deeper connection that links readers to an online source that's guaranteed to make readers feel like they are a part of the cadet academy. A fun story, a unique way to engage young readers, and the perfect book to encourage readers of any age to further examine the world around them and use critical thinking skills to investigate and defend the evidence of God's existence. *I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Coming on the heels of Cold-Case Christianity for Kids, in God’s Crime Scene for Kids author Wallace challenges kids again to investigate God’s design in the universe. This book talks about how there is too much intelligence in the universe; it is too fine tuned for it to have come into existence from nothing. Siting examples such as an empty nest that was made by an intelligent creature to withstand falling apart if it were to fall to the functions of a motor designed by human intelligence. Such forces as chance, accidents, or even gravity do not have the ability to put together or make anything out of nothing. This book investigates that everything that is made now that we see, is made by animals or people and obviously begs us to answer the question as to why that would have been different from the beginning. With cartoon illustrations that draw the reader in and make the author points easier to understand and easier to grasp the concepts taught; makes this a great book for kids to understand science from a creative point of view. Also the theme of making the kids detectives and looking at the information from a detective standpoint makes for an interesting read. I think these books would be fun to read as a stand-alone or as a great addition to a science curriculum. I received a copy of this book for free through Litfuse Publicity.

I read this book with my two daughters, ages 8 years and 10 years. They really enjoyed our time together reading this book. I also enjoyed seeing them nod their heads as something made sense. They also asked me right away if they didn’t understand something. They said they had a lot of fun reading this book with me and thought that it was written very well. I enjoyed the way the author walked the kids through the shoe box investigation, teaching techniques that cold case detectives use. Then the author also applied these techniques to answer the question of how the universe came to be. I felt that the subject matter was handled in an understandable way for kids. I think my 10 year old daughter could have read this book on her own and understood it very well. I think my 8 year old daughter needed me to be the one reading it to her, simply for content. She would probably have walked away with a few questions still needing to be answered by me, but that is just an age thing. We’ve enjoyed this book a lot and I have now ordered Cold Case Christianity for Kids to read through with my daughters. I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

This is more than JUST a bible study book for kids! this easy reader chapter book, reads like a comic book, BUT what it is teaching kids is to not only realize how much they already know about Hod, but how they can justify his existence to others! At the older elementary age, when they start questioning, this is the perfect time for this book! By using a 'crime scene' concept, J Warner lets kids discuss and formulate their own theories, in a way that they can easily understand! PLUS, there is an online component that goes along with the book, that helps both kids and their teachers/parents! Before you start reading, I would suggest that you download all the adult guides, which can be found on the Crime Scene website, by each chapter, then download the activity sheets and notebook sheets, so that kids have them ready, as they are reading, for jotting down any applicable notes (as you can see below). Then when they finish reading the chapter, have your child go back online and view the video from J Warner, as his videos point out key information from the chapter, and offers valuable explanations and further examples, to make sure they are understanding each chapter's points. This is actually the 2nd book in the J Warner's series for kids, the first being Cold Case Christianity for Kids (which we've previously reviewed), and a 3rd book, Forensic Faith will be coming out probably next year. My 10 yr old really liked the 1st book in the series, so i know she'll love working on this one too! I will probably use it in the Spring, after we finish the one we're on now. I love that it not only gets kids reading, but has them reading their bibles, and seeing how they CAN substantiate the case for God! if you home school, you not only are covering Bible, but also Reading, Writing AND Critical thinking! you have to love a book that does all that! If you have kids who hate bible study, this just might be the book to get them back to loving it! We highly recommend it!
