I really enjoy this book. I like that it is written to be done in a small group or one on one with a group of kids that often get ignored when it comes to discipleship. I really appreciate the verses, the connection of the Armor of God to other passages of the Bible, and teaching children how to truly study God's Word. I also really appreciated the creativity that comes in through the project of creating their own armor. I think this is a well-written study and can be beneficial to a number of different groups of kids and adults. Even if there are things that are theologically not consistent with the studier's personal beliefs, it is a great opportunity to explore what the Bible says about things and why we believe the things that we do. I highly recommend this study to any parents of tweens.

This is a good book for parents to go through with their children to teach them the concepts of spiritual warfare. Ms. Bird includes relevant examples so that tweens and parents can visualize what spiritual warfare may look like in a modern school environment.  

Armor of God can also be used a group study and includes materials that may be used to facilitate an eight to nine weeks group study. The facilitator section provides a guide on how to conduct meetings and includes activities related to the week's chapter that may be used to cement the lesson in participants' minds.

I received an advanced reader's copy from the publishers through NetGalley; a positive review was not required.

Great reading.  First of all, the title and book cover are very appealing.  The author give detailed account of how to prayer over our children using the whole armor of God.    No matter how many books on the market discussing this topic,  I particularly enjoyed the family weekly discussions and the training plan.  This book will have your entire family participation.

Armor of God by Catherine Bird is a must-have and a must-read for families and those in ministry!  Armor of God is a study geared towards tweens (9-12 year olds) that can be done as a family or within the Church or both.  The first part of the book gives an overview of the Armor of God—explaining what it is and how the rest of the book is going to go.  The next few chapters of the book delves into each piece of Armor and how to use it.  At the end of each chapter that goes over a piece of the Armor, there are letters from young people who have been there and how they used that particular piece of Armor in their own lives.  Throughout the book you are designing your own Armor piece by piece to be ready for battle.  The book also has a Facilitator’s Guide towards the end of the book that has games and discussion questions should the book be used for a Group Bible Study.  It also has templates to help you create your own Armor.

I loved this study from beginning to end! I loved how it discussed each piece of Armor in depth.  I also thought it tackled the topic of Spiritual Warfare perfectly and it was explained in a way that was real and true and not frightening.  As a Minister, I am going to tell all my friends and family about this book and encourage fellow leaders to have this book in their library.  This book has been a real asset to me as I am about to do this study with the young people I serve.  Thank you to NetGalley and the Publisher for the opportunity to read this book!  (This review is also on GoodReads.)

Armor of God
A Bible Study for Tweens and Parents in Today's Spiritual Battle
By Catherine Bird
This is a relatively good devotional for teen girls. I love the idea of parents and kids doing this together. Armor of God is an 8-week study. It has activities, words from other teens plus a good explanation of the various materials studied for the week. My only issue with this devotional is the use of The Voice as a translation. Ms. Bird really should have used a good, sold Bible translation.


I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and Netgalley.
