I'm a bit torn on this sequel to Discovering Jesus in Genesis. I continue to be vastly impressed with the doctrine being taught. They cover deeper topics in a way that a young child can fully grasp it. And in many cases the principles are reinforced in a variety of settings so that a child can see how it is applied in different situations. Plus, as part of the storyline, the pastor and his wife travel to China to adopt a daughter with wonderful portrayals of trusting God in all circumstances.

So what is not to like? Well, the pastor comes across as too rowdy for my tastes, and surprising to me, there seems to be a strong emphasis on organized boisterous play during church gatherings. I think children can enjoy a meeting of likeminded children without squirting shaving cream at their fathers, throwing a pie at their grandfather, and cavorting around on a large, expensive, inflatable toy.

You may differ with me on these standards, in which case the book will present no problem to you. But if it saddens you to see the line between how the church and the world amuses itself becoming so fuzzy, prepare yourself to talk about this with your children. So, is this a book to buy or avoid? Buy, most definitely, as the doctrine is vital. Just buy with your eyes open.

Not as good as the earlier books October 19, 2010
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Buckeye, AZ United States  
We loved Big Truths for Little Kids and Discovering Jesus in Genesis, but Discovering Jesus in Exodus was a disappointment.  The Hunts are very good at making theology clear for children, but we did not like the way adults and children interacted or the crazy way the church was portrayed.
