“When I first saw the title, “Bake Through the Bible,” I was a bit skeptical. My first thought was, “here was yet another book that was given a biblical title which probably related only a little to the actual Bible.” However, this title has proved me wrong.”

“This great resource starts with a couple of pages that show you how to use the book to get the most out of it for your little one. Bake through the Bible is a great way to get your child talking about God and some of the great stories from Genesis to Revelation.”

“From beginning to end, the Bible is filled with delicious treats (those delectable bites of knowledge about God), creamy morsels (those chewy bits of truths to bite off) and candy-coated, calorie-filled dishes (those stories used time and again to expose God’s goodness and faithfulness).”

Bake through the Bible would make a great gift for young children. This book offers something that a lot of them do not offer today – valued family time. Plus, it gives the parents an opportunity to pray with their children and get them excited about helping them learn how to cook in the kitchen.”

“Telling the gospel story through short lessons and cooking is a tried and true method in aiding children to remember. It is a tactile, visual, auditory, olfactory, and taste experience for them that helps to cement the concepts deep within.”

“This is a cookbook that will give parents an opportunity to do a fun activity together while teaching their children a Biblical story and principle.”

“As a preschool teacher, I loved the visual, hands-on approach to learning. I’m familiar with most types of Christian teaching materials on the market, but this book is unique because it pairs important Bible truths with entertaining cooking projects.”
Reviewer: Hannah Wencl (missionsoutlook.blogspot.com)

“This new cookbook is not your average Betty Crocker spiral bound cooking guide. Rather, this cookbook combines simple recipes that you can make with your children while exploring the biblical story that goes along with the recipe. My 5 year old daughter and I made Creation cookies this week and had a blast doing it!”

“This is a really fun book! I enjoyed trying the recipes, remembering how my now grown sons loved to cook/bake something new and then eat it. The cookies are fun and can be in different shapes, have sprinkles, or have a dirty/clean side. (Get the book to find out which is which!)This is a great book for parents or grandparents, and will make for some great memories!”

Bake Through the Bible might be one of the most unique, and fun, family Christian books on the market right now. Here is a book that brings stories from the Bible to life in such a fun way, and allows for families to get their hands dirty together (which is something my son always loves doing).”

“Does my four-year-old understand the significance of Jesus’ Kingship or how he fulfills the hopes of Israel? I have no illusions about this. What I do know is that the taste of butter and sugar, and baking with her dad has imprinted a memory and that experiences like this build faith.”
Reviewer: James Matichuk (thoughtsprayersandsongs.com)

“My favorite part of each activity is that the authors included a small prayer for you to pray with your kids. Oftentimes kids devotionals neglect to include prayer time or instruction, and it is easy for this discipline to be overlooked. Prayer is a necessary discipline to teach our kids if we are hoping for their relationship with God to be personal, intimate, and real. A big thank you to the authors for recognizing this need and including this in their book.”

Bake Through the Bible truly does accomplish its purpose of bringing families together in the kitchen to learn cooking skills and the Bible stories all at the same time. Even parents who are not particularly skilled in the kitchen can utilize this book, as it clearly outlines certain techniques and skills needed to complete the recipes. It claims to be for young children, but even parents of children through middle school age could benefit from this fun book.”

“Since my sous-chef dish-washing mom and I recently returned from Alaska with cookie cutters shaped like bear, moose and salmon, it was a no-brainer for us to make Creation Cookies! I have a favorite sugar cookie recipe but decided to use the simple recipe in the book so that I could give you an authentic review. I am so glad I did. This recipe is simple, the dough is lovely to work with, and the cookies deliciously wonderful!”
