Training Children For Gospel-Centered Reading

Elyse Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson, Give Them Grace: Dazzling Your Kids with the Love of Jesus, page 120:

We want our kids to know the one good story so well that when they see Luke Skywalker, Harry Potter, Frodo, Anne of Green Gables, Ariel, or Sleeping Beauty, they can recognize the strands of truth and deception in them.

  1. Very nice. Love the Star Wars font…

  2. I have been thinking along this line very often lately. So true.

  3. Nice. We’re doing such a series at our youth group with films such as The Hunger Games and The Avengers.

  4. Thanks for the great picture illustration! I have been blogging through Give them Grace for our church families.

    This approach definitely advocates for critical
    thinking! It also reminds me of John Eldridge’s Waking the Dead, where he alludes to The Matrix and other works that attempt to describe the cosmic conflict and metanarrative: Things were good; now they’re not; but goodness & perfection will be restored. Awesome illustration!

    Add to that the tooth fairy, Father Christmas and the Easter bunny!
