The Holy Spirit has been pleased to bless the diagrams illustrating scripture in my first book, Handbook to Happiness (Tyndale 1971), with transformed lives; it is my prayer that He will use this pictorial presentation to bring truth to life for new believers, as well as life to truth (Rom. 6) for seasoned Christians.

It was interesting that you began the book by introducing Christ rather than introducing Adam as many books do. You showed Christ’s humanity by showing how he was born of woman, found a trade, and lived as many people do. You didn’t present the information in a way that seemed above the readers head, but in an understandable way that makes the reader want to keep learning about becoming a child of God. I must thank you for mentioning the importance of water baptism because it is an important part of the conversion experience that is often left out of material such as this. I believe this book is excellently written and will be very compelling to the reader. As a college student, I found it informative and very intriguing. I would read it again as well as share it with believers and non-believers. If I can help you in any way, do not hesitate to let me know.
I am really impressed with your book on “How To Be A Child Of God.”
The offenders on the San Saba Unit have really been blessed by them. We have given almost all of them out. This is a truly inspired way to present the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to the lost men on our unit. The graphics are amazing. The theology is sound and the Holy Spirit is blessing its use to reach men for Christ. Thank you so much for sharing this book with us as we seek to make a difference in the lives of the offenders on our unit. God bless you; as you have been a real blessing to us. I saw the video link and was truly amazed. Again, thank you for your ministry. You will be in my prayers for God to continue to use you in a mighty way for His glory.
Yours in Christ,

I am an inmate at the Texas Dept. of Criminal Justice. I have received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I read and study the Bible every day. I have trouble understanding some scriptures. I read your book (How to be a Child of God) and I love it. I am indigent and can’t buy any books, and our unit chaplain is very limited on Bible literature. I was wondering if you have any other books or literature that will help me understand the scriptures. I am so eager to learn and understand. God bless you for the good work you do.

“How to Be A Child of God” is a short book written by David Howell. What I liked about this book is that it is the perfect introduction to what it is to be a Christian. This book is written is a series of pictures and short explanations, almost like you are reading a comic book. The illustrations are wonderful, and Howell keeps the narrative simple, and easy to understand. This book centers on God’s sacrifice to send his son to die for our sins, but also discusses Christian fundamentals, like eternal life, the first sin of Adam and Eve, and what is means to be reborn. This would be a wonderful gift for a new Christian, or someone who wants to know more about being a Christian. I think this would also be appropriate for middle school aged children, as a way to explain to them what it means to be a child of God. Wonderful resource – highly recommend this
