"Do you have a teenager who is intrigued by science or who may even want a career in science or engineering? Does your teen ask tough questions about the reliability of the Bible? Is your son or daughter ready to face the worldview challenges of the college classroom? Many Christian teens are leaving home, but not taking their faith with them. Reasons To Believe offers a solution to this problem through its Good Science, Good Faith curriculum. The program will prepare your 11th- or 12th-grader to stand strong in the faith amidst the challenges of a secular culture."

Reasonable Faith's "Apologetics Resources for Your Children"
We all know that small children can ask very profound questions, questions that sometimes leave us searching for answers! “What Is God Like?” is a series of ten illustrated booklets designed to help you teach Christian truth to your children and answer some of their deepest questions about God. These easy-to-understand booklets cover the principal attributes of God, such as omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence, eternity, self- existence, and so on.
