Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
I just wanted to write a quick personal note today and let you know that I haven’t been able to write much on the blog the last two months because I’ve been working on my next book, Talking with Your Kids about Jesus. If that title sounds familiar, it’s because it’s the next in the series after Talking with Your Kids about God! Yes, Jesus IS God, but Talking with Your Kids about God is focused on the “big picture” questions kids need to understand today about the evidence for God’s existence, the relationship between science and God, the nature of God, and the differences between an atheistic and theistic worldview (click here for the full table of contents if you’re new to my blog). Talking with Your Kids about Jesus will walk you through 30 of the most important questions kids need to understand today specifically about Jesus–questions about the identity of Jesus, the teachings of Jesus, the death of Jesus, the resurrection of Jesus, and the difference Jesus makes in a person’s worldview. It won’t be out until Spring 2020, but I just wanted to let you know that if there are stretches of time between now and May (the due date to my publisher) when I haven’t blogged much, it’s because I’m working hard on this next book…not because I’m not planning to blog anymore! Thanks for your patience.
I also wanted to share today my first appearance as a guest on a TV show. The show, Digging for Truth, is focused on biblical archaeology, but they also have guests on other apologetics-related topics. I was honored to be interviewed for two episodes, which you can watch below. On Episode 33, I talk about the need for Christian parents to raise their kids with an understanding of how to make a case for and defend the truth of Christianity. On Episode 34, I talk about the five kinds of skeptics who want to shame your kids for being Christians (this is based on an earlier blog post). I hope you enjoy these episodes!
A few last notes:
- If you’re looking for a meaningful and inexpensive Christmas gift for your husband, wife, or Christian parent friends, consider giving Keeping Your Kids on God’s Side and/or Talking with Your Kids about God! Or, put them on your own wish list and prepare to help your kids develop a deeper faith in 2019. They are less than $12 on Amazon.
- I’ll be traveling to Colorado Springs Monday to record an interview for the Focus on the Family radio show! I’m excited and grateful for the opportunity to share with their many listeners on the importance of apologetics. Please join me in praying that I’ll be a clear and compelling communicator. I believe the show will air in February. I’ll post here when it’s available.
- If you’re on Facebook, I want to be sure you know about the Facebook group I started a few months ago, called The Christian Parenting Lounge. It’s a closed group (only those in the group can see posts) where you can discuss anything you’d like with like-minded Christian parents. There are over 1,500 parents there already and it’s become a great discussion group. If you’d like to join us, just click the button on the group page to request to join. Unless you have a shady Facebook profile, I’ll approve you. 🙂
- If you happened to find and subscribe to my blog while I’m in this slow blogging period, you can check out some of my most popular posts here. I haven’t updated that page since earlier this year, so you can also look back over some of my most recent posts for weekend reading material. 🙂
OK, that’s all for now! Enjoy these episodes of Digging for Truth and have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving!
