Grace & Truth Books Reviews

This article is in collaboration with Grace & Truth Books.
Grace and Truth Books is a Christian bookstore built on the idea that “fancy packaging” is not what’s important, what matters is “what will glorify God, strengthen His people in their walk, and call all peoples to find joy in knowing His gospel and following Him.” They have books and audiobooks available on a myriad of topics for both children and adults. For this review, our Homeschool Review Crew members got to choose from ten different books for kids and adults.

Your Child’s Profession of Faith by Dennis Gundersen is a book for parents meant to help them in pointing their children toward Christ.
