Book Summary of Show Them Jesus by Jack Klumpenhower


“There are many good books designed to make your teaching easier, but this is not one of them.” (p. 2)

Teaching children in Sunday School, Wednesday night, and small group settings can be challenging, but it’s also a tremendous privilege and responsibility. Creating moral children and teens who leave the church when they grow up is not the goal of any faithful Bible teacher. Rather, teachers who long to make a lasting impact on their students must keep the gospel front and center. 

The Bible ultimately is about Jesus, and children need to see the infinite value and worth of Christ and what He has done for them in His life, death, and resurrection. This also is a principle parents must incorporate in their family worship practices. Jack Klumpenhower is “simply looking for parents, Sunday school teachers, youth workers, Bible club directors, camp counselors, song leaders—anyone who works with kids—to join [him] in this manifesto: We pledge to teach the good news and show kids Jesus” (p. 7, emphasis in original).
