More Product Information

The ABCs of God is a Sunday School curriculum for children on the greatness and worth of God. It uses the alphabet as a framework for learning the attributes of God and other terms that describe His character, at an age-appropriate level. (Note that attributes are purposely not taught in alphabetical order.) Each lesson asks and answers three key questions, "Who is God?" "What is He like?" and "How should I act toward Him?" as it presents a theology of God for children. Through the use of a teaching aid called “The Blessing Box,” students will discover a new attribute of God each week and will be challenged to consider how they should respond to an amazing God who is worthy of their greatest love, honor, trust, and obedience.

Recommended resource for leaders and parents: To explore the truths presented in The ABCs of God on an adult level, we strongly recommend John Piper’s book, The Pleasures of God: Meditations on God’s Delight in Being God.

Connect classroom teaching with the home by encouraging family devotions from God's Attributes.

Scripture quotations are from the ESV® Bible.
