Conspiracy Alert! The new ESV Children’s Bible is in truth a Children’s Desiring God study Bible in disguise. My first clue was the topics covered in the supplementary material. “Fighting the Fight of Faith” is not the typical article in a children’s Bible.
The table of contents left no doubt. Over fifty pages of articles were copyright by Jill Nelson, Sally Michael or www.ChildrenDesiringGod.com.
On page 1569 they have a table titled, "What is Salvation?" Here are their nine points.
- Chosen by God
- The gospel call
- New spiritual life
- Perseverance of believers
- Death and glorification
Will The Next Generation Treasure Christ? is a dialog on reforming children’s ministry and equipping parents - for the glory of Christ and the joy of our children.
