Review: How Do We Know God is Really There?

First off, I'm ecstatic to be writing my FIRST Review for Mosiac Reviews! This is going to be a great tool for our family and I look forward to sharing some fun & useful things with everyone! :) So, without further adieu, here's the first! :) I freely welcome your comments. (Keep them nice please!)

How Do We Know God is Really There? 
By Melissa Cain Travis

I was thrilled with the chance to review this book. Not because we struggle with our Faith or knowing if God exists, but simply because there are times it would be great to have a tool to use when sharing with the others about the Lord. Also, I feel that Science can be awfully confusing when so many subjects contradict what we are taught to believe through the Word of God. I'm Blessed to be able to Homeschool, and know that my Kids are being taught that not only does God exist, but he loves them very much. However, not everyone is called to teach their children, or for others it simply may not be a possibility. So with education not always being faith based, I truly believe this would be a great book to read and share with your kids or others who have questions regarding God's existence. 

Melissa Cain Travis is not only the fabulous creator of this book, but a Homeschooling mom with an advanced degree in Science and Religion from Biola University. She also works along side Apologia and speaks at Apologetic conferences and workshops regarding Science and Faith.

Thomas and his Dad love to spend their evenings together exploring space through the telescope in the backyard tree house. Like most kids, Thomas is curious and asks his Dad, How we Know God is Really There? Together they explore the evidence of God's existence by looking into space.

How do we Know God is Really There?' is just the first of a series of picture books that helps answer questions some might have regarding the Christian Faith.  Even pre-readers will enjoy the illustrations as they do a fabulous job of telling the story as well! My 3 & 4 year old's have sat and read it out loud just by looking at the pictures, but they also enjoy listening to it being read to them.

Although the graphics are easy to interrupt, the book is written so that older kids can understand it more and paint a great picture in their minds. I loved that my kids asked questions as we went along and popped up in the "ah-ha" moments. :)

 How Do We Know That God is Really There? is available to purchase through the Apologia Website for only $16, This is a great investment into your book collection, to buy for a neighbor, friend, co-worker, or anyone who has questions or is struggling with understanding creation. My family is really enjoying this book and I'm confident that yours will as well.
