Paperback

Millions of church kids are growing up and deciding to leave the church. They listened attentively in Sunday school, made friends, and seemed committed. But one day, they quit. What happened? The Bible says we love God because he first loved us. So if we are not primarily teaching our kids about God's love for us in Christ, we may miss our opportunity to capture their hearts. But what does it look like to teach a gospel-centered lesson?

Show Them Jesus is an instruction manual for teachers of kids and teens written by a lay Bible teacher with 30 years' experience. With a simple framework and lots of real-life examples, Klumpenhower's book helps teachers to identify and communicate the heart of the gospel to each child in each lesson. Conventional wisdom says, "Make class more fun!" Or just, "Make it easier!" But Show Them Jesus challenges the culture of low-stakes, low-expectations teaching and invites teachers to do nothing less than teach and treasure the good news of Jesus in every lesson. Show Them Jesus's how-to approach will compliment and enrich existing lessons or teaching materials and is appropriate for teachers of children and teens in any setting.

Essential reading for anyone with kids or in kids ministry.
5 stars By Andrew Horsfield, Dec 04 2015
The bible is full of examples of people who trusted God's promises, who had faith in His sovereignty and were devoted to doing good. A huge mistake teachers make is to hold these humans up on a pedestal and encourage the kids to be like Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Paul, etc. Why is this a mistake? It is focussing on humans, not on God! Jack gives great strategies to help show kids Jesus instead of humans, whether teaching from the OT or NT, and the importance that our actions should flow from Him, not to earn His favour.
Great for parents and teachers of little kids, school kids and teenagers. An enjoyable and encouraging book you won't want to put down, and one you'll come back to time and time again.
I have 10 copies so I can get as many of my Sunday School and Kids program leaders to read it, it is essential for anyone in kids ministry.

Great for people working with kids
5 stars By Dan Gorton, Jul 03 2015
This book was great. So focussed on the good news of Jesus and how to pass it on to the younger generations. Great use of examples, humble about own failures, and best of all - so focused on Jesus. If you work with kids or if you are a parent, I highly recommend this book.
