The Acrostic of Scripture gives parents and teachers a unique way to teach theology to children and makes catechism fun! An alphabet of words introducing biblical theology, written to a rhyming beat, paints a detailed and varied portrait of the unfolding story of the Bible, as it is fulfilled by Jesus.
Authors Jonathan Gibson and Timothy Brindle have created The Acrostic of Scripture, to help children ages five to eleven learn theology so their “knowledge of God’s big picture is better.” The fourth release in the Acrostic Theology for Kids series, this book is fun to read, simple to memorize, and features illustrations from C. S. Fritz that shine with creativity.
The Acrostic of Scripture includes a QR code in the back that can be scanned to listen to the audio version of the book which Timothy Brindle reads in rap style.

“Every Christian parent, as well as pastors and leaders of Christ’s Church, are always in need of Biblically faithful and effective instruments to assist in communicating the Gospel clearly to the “lambs” in the flock. This volume fulfills that desire beyond expectation with its effective teaching style, as well as interest attracting presentation, while communicating the life-changing power of the Gospel and call to Christ allowing children ‘to come unto Him.’”
Harry L. Reeder III, Pastor Teacher, Briarwood Presbyterian Church, Birmingham, Alabama

“Learning is helped by memory aids and using the alphabet in this way is especially great for kids. It helps them remember AND gives them a sense of accomplishment, since they already know the alphabet and can tie new ideas to it. Looking forward to hearing Timothy rap it!”

TimothyBrindle and Jonny Gibson have given parents and teachers a simple resource to assist children in learning how the people, places, events, and themes in the Bible connect to Christ. Additionally, they have highlighted the importance of knowing the Lord's Prayer, the Ten Commandments, and the Apostle's Creed. This is a richly creative resource.”
