Beautifully illustrated* with short chapters, The Gospel Made Clear to Children details the person and work of Christ. It begins with the holiness of God, the sinfulness of man, and the penalty for sin. It considers the love of God in eternity past and the provision God has made in sending His Son. It traces the incarnation, birth, life, and ministry of Jesus Christ, with a special focus on His crucifixion, resurrection, ascension, and exaltation. It culminates with a call to repent and believe, ending with the evidence of true conversion. Written from a heart full of love, this book calls children to turn from their sins and trust in Christ.
The Gospel Made Clear to Children is written for parents to read aloud to younger children (elementary) and for older children (youth) to work through independently. It is designed to be a discipleship tool to help parents impart to their children the wisdom that leads to salvation (2 Tim. 3:15). Corresponding study questions for reflection and application can be found in the companion guide.
*There are no images of Jesus in this book. See the sample images for the illustration in Part 4, Jesus's Messianic Ministry.
The study guide is written for parents to work through with younger children and for older children to work through independently. It is printed separately from the book, allowing multiple students from the same family to write in their own copy at a fraction of the price. This lets each student record his or her own observations. Plus, if a parent or student wants to work through the book more than once, they only need to purchase another study guide. The study guide, along with The Gospel Made Clear to Children book, is the perfect resource for family discipleship, Sunday School curriculum, or homeschool co-op class.

"The highest recommendation I can give to this wonderful book is that I will be reading it over and over again to my children. It is rich in biblical doctrine and is an invaluable instrument to aid parents in teaching their children the glorious truths of “God in Christ” reconciling the world to Himself. I know of no other book that so clearly communicates the great doctrines of the gospel to children. I look forward to hearing of the harvest that it will reap in the years to come." – Paul Washer, Author, Director of HeartCry Missionary Society
"Jennifer Adams has a present for your child, a gift of biblical truth, wrapped in love. Three features make this book especially valuable. First, it teaches children gospel truths about God, sin, Christ, and the gospel call in short and simple chapters. Second, each point is carefully referenced to Scripture. Third, a valuable Bible study for your child to look up and write out the same truths found in each chapter is available. This is an excellent tool that God can use to bring your children to Jesus Christ to find salvation in Him alone." – Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan
