Equips parents to guide their young children through all major doctrines in an understandable, chapter-a-day format.Sure, it's easy to teach your children the essentials of Christian theology when you're a theology professor. But what about the rest of us?WithBig Truths for Little Hearts, Bruce Ware, (you guessed it!) a theology professor, encourages and enables parents of children 614 years of age to teach through the whole of systematic theology at a level their children can understand. Parents can teach their children the great truths of the faith and shape their worldviews early, based on these truths.The book covers ten topics of systematic theology, devoting several brief chapters to each subject, making it possible for parents to read one chapter per day with their children. With this non-intimidating format, parents will be emboldened to be their children's primary faith trainersand perhaps learn a few things themselves along the way.
