For anyone looking for a fresh way to present the gospel to young children, Wow! The Good News in Four Words is a perfect resource. This whimsical and fun book outlines the gospel in a simple and memorable way (for both adults and kids!), using fun words to highlight the story. The book will present Creation/Genesis (Wow!), The Fall (Uh-oh . . .), Redemption/Jesus’ Life and Sacrifice (Yes!), Restoration/The New Heaven (Aaahhhh), ending with one last Wow because we get to go out and tell the Good News!

My thoughts: Wow!: The Good News in Four Words is a cute and creative way to share parts of the gospel with children (and adults) using four words to tell the story. This is not a book to use with children raised in church who know the gospel forwards and backwards, but if your church has a bus ministry, or a good news club or other ministry that reaches out to unchurched neighborhood children then this book would be awesome for them.  It is worded in such a way that the person reading the story can expand on it if the listener asks questions, so they might get the whole truth instead of a watered down version of it. 

Definitely unique and and timely ministry resource with more people unchurched than ever before.
