Product Description

It has been said that one can find the answers to all of life's mysteries in the Bible. The Word of God is sufficient to meet all our needs. Finding the answers requires at least a basic knowledge of the Bible. The concordance is a topical index of key words that lead a scholar to appropriate Bible verses. It is a valuable tool to finding the answers in the Word of God. Concord Cunningham is a boy who has discovered the value of a concordance and uses it to solve mysteries in his community. His success brings him acclaim, and a reputation as " Scripture Sleuth". Readers will be challenged to solve the mysteries without the advantage of a concordance, but Concord Cunningham will reveal the source of the answer in Scripture. This is the first of a series. Matthew Halverson is eager for young readers to discover how to find God's answers to life's questions in the Bible.

    All "Sleuth" NO "Scripture"
    January 19, 2011
    Kelly
    I was very excited to see a book that would be using "Scripture" as its main basis...I loved the cover where the main character is magnifying "Thy word have I hid in my heart" verse. I was VERY disappointed to find that the book has VERY little to do with living for the Lord, or using Scripture to help you LIVE life.

    I, unlike the other parents in these reviews, used this book as a "read aloud", so I read the WHOLE book WITH my 9 year old daughter. Basically, Concord is usually involved in some lie, theft, or mean-spirited prank that he "calls them out on" by using some random scripture which helps him figure out WHAT happened in the heinous act.

    Here's an example: One story Concord's brother is playing cards with a friend who claims he's "psychic", but he's actually CHEATING. So, since the boy is cheating by looking into his cup of water to see his card, Concord looks up "water" and arrives at Proverbs 27:19 "As in water face reflects face, ..." Then Concord can "bust" him. SO many things wrong with this scenario. First of all, should we be joking about someone using psychic abilities? Should we bust someone who is in sin? No...we should lovingly go to them and bring their sin to their attention, so they can repent. There's no repentance, nor use of Scripture to restore this person lovingly, who is in sin.

    Every other scenario is exactly the same. Some people seek out Concord, not because he loves the Lord, but because he can "solve crimes". I really don't see how the Bible is necessary in this book at all. Okay, it's not.

    What's happening here is the Bible is taken out of context (or basically in NO context at all), and used as ANY other book could be used (I'd say a book of poetry might be sufficient). 2 Tim 3:16-17 says, 16 "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." This book shows how NOT to use Scripture...for personal gain, for calling people out, for busting them, for being hailed as a hero, etc.

    The only good thing was that I was able to show my daughter that just because something CLAIMS it's of the Lord, doesn't mean it is. I'd rather have my children read a secular book, instead of a book which uses the Bible in a completely useless and non-life changing way.

    I got this book for my 7 1/2 year old son and he loves it!! They are like Encyclopedia Brown but Biblically based. My son loves looking up the scripture at the end to get the clues and it is helping him to get familiar with how to find scripture addresses. It is possible for him to read the book himself (maybe more of a 3rd grade level) but he enjoys being read to and it's fun to do it together.

    My son loved this book so much and can't wait for me to order the 2nd book. He said "I can't believe you can use the bible to solve mysteries." I will be ordering the next book soon!

    My 10 yr. old son received 2 of these books for Christmas and absolutely loves them! He and his 14 yr. old brother actually let me read several of the chapters to them so they could work together to figure out the clues. I hope Mat Halverson considers writing more books like this -what a great way to get kids into their Bibles! Bravo!
