CSB Explorer Bible for Kids
Bible-literacy and discipleship – two vital pursuits I believe the body of Christ needs to be prioritizing not just for adults, but also (and perhaps with more urgency) for our youth. Both begin with the daily study of scripture and contextual comprehension and application.
While there are many reasons why individuals may be inconsistent or unintentional with studying the Bible, primary reasons for young people can be lack of interest, limited engagement, or belief that the Bible is irrelevant and not applicable to our world today. Bible-believing followers of Christ know the Word of God is the only way to make sense of the world we are experiencing and therefore consult it regularly as the objective source of truth. Scripture provides the limited human mind with unlimited wisdom and guidance to navigate the chaos and confusion of culture while equipping us with the strength and stability needed to weather the secular storms and breathe life to a dying world.
The CSB Explorer Bible for Kids places God’s Word in the middle of God’s world. Through engaging colorful designs and illustrations, interactive activities, fascinating facts, historical timelines, and clear language that communicates God’s message while cultivating spiritual connection and teaching life-changing timeless truths, kids will grow closer to Christ with a Bible that grows with them.
Within the pages of the CSB Explorer Bible for Kids, kids of all ages can explore people, places, and things of the Bible while discovering God’s creation and learning how He works all things together for the good of those who love Him.
