The Gospel in Kid Speak, Cycle A, authored by TJ Burdick

The Gospel in Kid Speak, Cycle A, authored by TJ Burdick

The Gospel in Kid Speak, Cycle A

by T.J. Burdick

The most important books in the Bible are the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. They illustrate the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, our Lord, Savior and King. In these three volumes of The Gospel in Kid Speak, we place a magnifying glass on the God made man so that our youngest children may also study Christ’s ways and ultimately imitate them.

Reading and interpreting the Gospels is not an easy task, not even for an adult. For children, the task becomes even more difficult. How could we possibly hold them accountable for understanding truths as complex as the Incarnation or the Immaculate Conception when their minds and souls are still in their infancy stages?

As a parent to four children, I wrote the Gospel for each Sunday and Holy Day of Obligation in language that they could understand as young as three years old. I compiled each of my renditions of the Gospel into three books, one for each liturgical cycle so that my kids could understand the complexities of the Gospel messages in easy-to-understand “Kid Speak.”

For my children who were still struggling with understanding the read-alouds (or if they simply couldn’t sit still yet :-), I found a piece of Sacred Art that visually illustrates the Gospel for each week. I figured where my words may fail (which they do!), the genius of artists from the past two millennia could succeed. Based on using this method with all four of my kids, I can assure my reader that it works.
