Family Bookshelf: The Priest with Dirty Clothes by R.C Sproul

Just finished reading this one with my children.  I found it absolutely fantastic!  It is a great explanation of the transaction that takes place at salvation where we receive Christ's imputed righteousness and He takes our sin.  It puts it in terms that children can understand.  At the end of the book it has several study questions for parents to discuss the book with the kids to help them see the truths of the Gospel and what Christ has done for us.  I read it to my 5 & 4 year old.  It was just a little too long to maintain my four year old's attention the entire time but he enjoyed it nonetheless.

Read as always with your Bible open.  In fact, the great thing about this book.  In the study section it outlines how to transition from talking to your children about the story to moving on the more important facts of the Gospel so that you raise your children in the truths of the Lord.  You can pick this book up from Ligonier.org.


** Please note that I received a review copy of this book from Reformation Trust but was in no way obligated to give a favorable review, just a fair one.
