Book Review: If I Could Ask God Anything


Kathryn Slattery has written an incredible resource for parents, Sunday School teachers, church workers, or anyone desiring help in teaching children about God.  If I Could Ask God Anything: Awesome Bible Answers for Curious Kids is a 207 page book divided into the following 11 sections:

  1. God
  2. Jesus
  3. The Holy Spirit
  4. The Bible
  5. Christianity
  6. Prayer
  7. The Church
  8. Christian Seasons and Holidays
  9. Being a Christian Here and Now
  10. Being a Christian Forever and Ever
  11. Big Questions

Each section follows the same format.  At the top of each page there is a question followed by an explanation with scripture references.  The explanations are brief but thorough enough not to confuse.  And the wording is simple, yet clear.  It is written to a child reader and comes across as a gentle conversations between an adult and child.

I enjoyed reading through this book.  The author used examples in some of her answers that I wasn’t familiar with so I was able to get a new perspective on some things.  I appreciated the author tackling some of the harder questions of the faith.  The information in the book was biblically sound.  This would even be an easy introduction to the faith for a new believer.  I give this book 5 stars.  Thanks to Thomas Nelson Publishers for the opportunity to review this book.


I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their http://BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
