This innovative volume leads older children (ages 8-12) through baptismal preparation and a basic orientation to Christian discipleship and membership in the local church. Rather than presenting a dry, textbook approach, Pastor Wallace Smith integrates:
student-friendly talking points
varied homework assignments
The author identifies key aspects of the Christian life with familiar road signs and compares the discipleship journey with a road under construction.
Images of God
Conversations about Jesus
Making your faith your own
Practicing and living faith
Designed as a seven-week/seven-chapter course, Baptism Ahead will appeal to different learning styles as well as different church and family settings.
