RHYME YOUR ACROSTIC
Since the beginning of time, human beings have been using acrostics and rhyme as a teaching tool. Putting ideas into an acrostic rhyme helps children learn things in a more memorable way than simple rote learning. God, the author of all language, knows this. The Bible is full of poetry. It contains acrostic poems that begin lines with each letter of the Hebrew alphabet (e.g. Psalm 119 and the book of Lamentations); it is also contains poems that emphasize rhyme in Hebrew (e.g. Psalm 1 and 2). These poetic features make the content of God’s Word easier to remember. Acrostic poems are straightforward, covering each letter of the alphabet, A–Z. The Acrostic Theology for Kids series is written as a rap. Children might be more familiar with this style of rhyme than their parents. If you need some help reading The Acrostic of Jesus, click on the audio above to hear Timothy Brindle rapping the text.

Families will find the book is a joy to read and reread, and a wonderful tool to help kids absorb eternal truth about God.
