Case for Grace for Kids by Lee Strobel
You might remember Lee Strobel as the author of the Case for Christ. The Case for Grace for Kids book is not written in the same logical, step-by-step manner. It's a more emotional work that will appeal especially to your eight- to fifteen-year-old. God's grace changes lives and gives even children the power to do what's right and to live better lives.
It's 167 pages, but it won't take long to get through as it's written at a third-grade reading level. I found myself spending longer than I meant to in one sitting with this book. My favourite story is the one about Stephanie and the story of what happened after her mother abandoned her. I don't usually snuffle through stories in kids' books, but this one made me cry!
I'd recommend this book especially for preteens. Although the publisher recommends children 8-12 as the book's primary audience, I think it really gets into the whole concept of "relationship with God and others" at a level that only preteens and teens can understand and appreciate.
