We have discussed relativism before on the blog. Today, we would like to mention a resource for families with young children in your life that will help start meaningful conversations about absolute truth and relativism.
Chameleon’s Can of Worms is the second in a series of picture book apologetics stories geared toward young children. This excerpt from the back pages of the book, explains the purpose of the project:
Moral relativism is a pervasive issue that we face today. Its brand of tolerance has seeped into popular literature, film, music and television programs. “What’s true for you is not true for me” and “all religions are just different roads to God” are two familiar examples.
It is important that our children understand that truth is real and objective. It is important that they can identify truth, live by truth, and share truth with their friends.
Our hope is that this book will help you guide your child through a simple refutation of just such a “true for you but not for me” argument, while also equipping them to respond with courage and kindness when their beliefs are challenged. We pray that this book will inspire deep conversations between you and your children about our matchless Creator, and will encourage them to love Him in ever-deepening ways.
Here are some pages from the book:
The first book in the series, Pig and the Accidental Oink, presents the Kalam cosmological argument in a simple way that encourages conversation about whether the universe was the result of a cosmic accident or the result of a Creator’s will.
