Yes, Bible commentaries for parents to read to their children. This series of books provides what children need—solid truths to grow in. In these books, Nancy Ganz draws out the beautiful implications of the Old Testament narrative that are foundational for Christian faith.
The beginning books of the Bible are essential to our understanding of God’s redemptive story. The Herein is Love series creatively focuses our attention on the events that bring this story to life, combining the richness of literature and the depth of a commentary.
The included Teacher’s Guide helps parents and Sunday School teachers discuss the lessons with children.
About the Author
Nancy Ganz has spent the last 20 years in her native land of Canada, helping her husband, Dr. Richard Ganz, in church–planting work and home–schooling their four daughters. She received her formal theological training from the University of Toronto prior to her conversion to Christ at L’Abri in the Netherlands. However, it has been the many years of Bible study since that time which has produced her Herein Is Love commentaries on the Old Testament. Currently, most of her time is spent studying the Scriptures, writing various books, and taking long walks along the country roads and woodland paths near her home.

“Interesting and very competent. . . a major contribution!”
– Dr. D.A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
“Where can one even think of finding such treasures as these fine commentaries on Bible books written for children? A tour de force in children’s literature.”
– Derek W. H. Thomas PhD, John E. Richards Professor of Systematic and Practical Theology, RTS
“The publication of commentaries for children on neglected biblical books such as Exodus and Leviticus is noteworthy in itself. For Christians have for too long starved their children of much of the nourishment of that Word which is ‘all . . . profitable’. But Nancy Ganz’s ’Herein is Love’ series is very much more. Here, in fact, is a biblical theology, a re–telling of these ancient writings in the light of the whole Bible and with a firm grasp of its central thrilling theme—the redeeming love of God in Christ. Doctrinally sure–footed, warmly devotional and refined over years of practical teaching experience, these lessons will prove an invaluable resource for all those engaged in training children for God. As society drifts ever farther from biblical moorings, here is timely help towards preparing a new generation to stand steadfast in the faith and, by God’s grace, impact the world for King Jesus.”
– Professor Edward Donnelly, President, Reformed Theological College, Belfast
“What I have appreciated the most—in addition to fine insights into the text— is the spirit and tone in which it is written. It reads as on who delights in the greatness and love of God; one who has childlike respect for God. And this also commends itself to children. I have been helped in ‘becoming like a child’ in reading Nancy’s work. I am thankful for her fine work and dedication.”
– Brian Coombs, Pastor, Syracuse Reformed Presbyterian Church
“Bible commentaries for children? Yes, the depth of Bible commentaries in story form for parents to read to their children. This series of books provides what children need—solid truths to grow in to. Too much material for children is so light and fluffy that children are not encouraged to think great and glorious thoughts about God. These books are different. Artfully written, they beautifully draw out the implications of the Old Testament narrative that are foundational for Christian faith. I guarantee that your children will not want you to stop reading these books and you won’t want to stop either.”
– Dr. Tedd Tripp, author of Shepherding a Child’s Heart
