Following up his popular book Exploring the Bible, David Murray has written a new reading plan for children that focuses on Jesus Christ. This volume walks kids through the story of Jesus in the Gospels over the course of a year. Each of the 52 weekly “meetings with Jesus” teaches a new truth about Jesus through 6 days of Bible reading and includes interactive reflection questions, space for prayer and application, memory verses, and lines for sermon notes. In less than 5 minutes a day, children will get to know Jesus and his offer of abundant life.
Christians care about children as precious image bearers of a holy God, not ‘mini-mes’ or idols or pawns. Christians treat children as real people whose inherent worth necessitates that they meet Jesus, for even before our children know Jesus, we have confidence that our covenantal God knows them. Pastor David Murray is our most trusted source for biblical material for children, material that respects the integrity of even the smallest infant in the covenant family. Meeting with Jesus is a gem, offering children accessible questions and gentle guidance that can lead to a lifetime of good practices, while at the same time providing parents and grandparents a clear and daily way to put the hand of a child into the hand of the Savior. I can’t wait to buy many copies for my children and my grandson!

One of the most important things that we can teach our children is how to think. In Meeting With Jesus, David Murray gives our children the tools they need to start thinking about the person and work of Christ—thought that is foundational for life and eternity. By asking good questions, encouraging close reading, facilitating Scripture memorization, and orienting kids to their local church, David helps set up habits that will be a lifelong blessing for young readers.

David Murray’s devotionals for children have left an indelible impression on my three kids. I’m so thankful he has now extended the series to Meeting with Jesus. My only regret is that my kids have grown up and are now a bit too old for it! But I have every confidence it will serve your children just as well as the previous volume served mine.
