Parents work hard to protect their children from danger.
But are we helping to guard them in the spiritual battle that already rages around them?
Whether he consciously takes sides or not, every person is in the middle of spiritual warfare. None of us can choose to sit on the sidelines—and even our children are not exempt!
So rather than trying to shield them from the very real war around them, why not equip them, as early as possible, to take an active role and fight back?
Sally Michael provides the framework for parents to train their children in the fight of faith. In this full-color, illustrated “battle plan,” she uses the gospel message to introduce children to the state of their hearts, then awakens them to the many battlegrounds that surround us—both from our own sinful hearts and from the enemy’s attacks.
She then encourages children to be fighters, giving them a biblical battle strategy to depend on God, resist the enemy, and stand strong!
“The Christian life is no Disney adventure. It’s a dangerous journey to the Celestial City, and we spend much of it fighting for faith and for the faith. Our children need to learn early on what the battle is all about, what it’s like to fight, and how to survive.”
—Jon Bloom, President, Desiring God
“God’s Battle is a theologically rich resource for parents and pastors who want to give children a God-sized vision to fight the good fight of the faith. I highly recommend it.”
—Josh Mulvihill, Pastor to Children and Families, Grace Church, Eden Prairie, Minnesota
