Conversation-starter tackles range of weighty topics with a light touch
Crossway Books & Bibles aims to cater to the boundless appetite tweens have for facts and information with What Does the Bible Say About That? by Carolyn Larsen (978-1-433-50213-2, softcover, $15.99). Releasing Jan. 31, this compendium of facts about the Bible’s teaching—on everything from anger to movies, boredom to divorce—can provide conversation-starters for adults and relevant reading for youngsters.
Larsen notes in the book’s introduction that what’s inside “is not just a bunch of ‘do this and don’t do that’ lists. It’s the story of God’s love for you and how His Spirit living in you will guide, protect, love, forgive, and love you again.”
