This is a review post. I received this item in exchange for my honest review. Below you will find just that, my honest review.
My primary goal when raising kids is to raise them to see everyone as a child of God. This can be hard to explain in today’s political correctness that seems to be everywhere. Ken Ham and Master Books has helped me with this with One Blood for Kids: What the Bible Says About Race.
For this review, I received the digital download of One Blood for Kids. I was able to send this over to my Kindle account and access it on our iPads for the full-color experience (which I recommend!)
My copy had 64 color pages that talk to us about the 7 Spiritual “Races” of the Bible. When I say, color, I mean color! The pages are beautifully full of color and pictures that take what we are reading and allow us to see it as well!
This book talks about the young earth, and how the fossils that we find are from Noah’s Flood. This makes sense to our family, and even more sense when described in the way that Ken Ham described it.
There is no right or wrong way to read this book. We chose to read this book during our Bible Study time at the beginning of our homeschool day. I loved the little “Set the Tone” sections on the pages. I used those as our starting and stopping points of reading each day. Some days we would read more pages, other days it would be less.
On the days we read more, it was more of the storytelling side of it. The days when we had less to read, these pages were packed with a lot more information.
The main point throughout this book was that there was one race, the human race. This was further broken down to the 7 Spiritual Races of Created, Fallen, Rescued, Divided, Saved, Lost, and Lamb’s Race. We learn about each of these as we go through the book.
We have learned so much through reading this book, mom and dad included! The kids had a question that if we all came from Adam and Eve, how could we be different colors? That was explained in a significant way that everyone understood. It also helped us understand why, in our family, some kids have different colored hair and a slightly darker skin tone than the other.
My kids come running when I say that it is time to read One Blood for Kids. They are excited to learn more about the human race and how we are all related to each other. This is a great book that takes the politics out of the equation and only shows the history of the Bible as to where we all came from.
If you are like me and want to teach your kids that everyone is a child of God, no matter their skin color, One Blood for Kids is the book you will want to have in your hands!
