Sooner or later, kids have big questions about God, life, faith and the Bible, especially when their friends start asking them about what they believe. A common one is: How do we know Christianity is really true?

Big questions deserve good answers. This pithy, fun and fast-paced book looks at what the Bible says to help 9-13s think through this big question for themselves.

It explains why we can trust the Gospels as real historical documents and walks through the evidence for Jesus' resurrection. Lively stories and illustrations make this book easy for this age group to engage with.

Christian studies teacher and school chaplain Chris Morphew has been answering big questions from kids in his classroom for over a decade. He has written over 20 books for children and youth, including Best News Ever, a 100-day devotional for tweens.

Emma Randall has illustrated many books, including the Training Young Hearts series.

How Do We Know Christianity Is Really True? is part of the Big Questions series: fun and fast-paced books walking kids aged 9-13 through what the Bible says about some of the big questions of life, and helping them to grow in confident and considered faith.

Chris has a knack for making complicated things simpler, making confusing things make sense, and making everything fun. He takes your questions—and you—seriously and knows where you can find real, honest-to-God answers.

Maybe you’ve been singing songs about God, Jesus and the Bible since you were little. And maybe, over the years, you’ve had questions about whether the things you’ve been taught about Christianity are actually true. Or perhaps you’re hearing about Jesus for the first time, and you have questions about that too. Well, I think you’re going to love spending time with Chris Morphew in this book as together you dig up solid, helpful, satisfying answers to lots of questions—including some you didn’t even know you had.

Champ Thornton

Author of The Radical Book for Kids

Chris Morphew is like Tim Keller for teens. In this short book, he tackles some of today’s tough questions with Scripture, wisdom and clarity—and just the right amount of fun to keep young readers turning the page. I cannot wait to put this book into the hands of my three children.

Independent reviews

"This book was amazing! Every time I opened this book, I felt myself learning new things."

Bella Schroeder, 17 May 2021

Even though this book is only about 80 pages long Morphew did not skip a beat. His concise, powerful words were able to teach me in a way that I have never thought about Christianity. I loved the way you could clearly hear Morphew's writing voice in this book. I do not remember where exactly I read this, but someone said this is a Tim Keller book written for kids. I completely agree with that statement.... continue reading

Highly recommended!

The Big Questions series for middle graders respects their questions and offers answers with respect too. Throughout the series, the author (a teacher and school chaplain) connects with young readers with a conversational tone, excellent examples to explain his points, and—perhaps most important—a deep understanding of their questions.... continue reading

“Really Excellent Book”

I bought this book to read to my 7 & 9 year old daughters, as they have recently had friends ask them about God, and also friends telling them that God isn't true.
This book is fantastic - even as an adult I learnt so much. It is written in really clear, child friendly language, and both my girls are really able to understand and engage with it. It would make a great gift too for any cynical friends of theirs who are open minded enough to read it.

“Brilliant apologetics for older children”

Really engaging and tackle the difficult questions, thoughtful children have. Would also be happy recommending the series to adult young Christians.
