Exploring Grace Together- book review

This is a new devotional for families by Jessica Thompson, co-author of Give Them Grace with Elyse Fitzpatrick.  I had the opportunity to review this book for Crossway, and I'm so glad I did. In short and sweet little chapters, Thompson gives a key verse of Scripture, followed by a "case-study", so to speak. A child is struggling with something, and the corresponding truth from Scripture shows clearly how the truth of the Gospel defeats the lie that is preventing the child from experiencing the grace and truth of Jesus Christ's lovel.  In closing, each chapter offers a few questions for the parent to ask, interacting with their own child, and finding ways in which they might relate to the what is being discussed in the devotional.  Overall, it would be very easy for a family to implement this useful tool, and I would consider it most beneficial between the ages of 5-8.
