The Acrostic of God: A Rhyming Theology for Kids
by Jonny Gibson and Timothy Brindle; illustrated by C.S. Fritz
By giving children an alphabetical list of the titles and attributes of God written with a rhyming beat, Jonathan Gibson and Timothy Brindle make The Acrostic of God fun to read and easy to memorize. Each characteristic, A to Z, weaves together a beautiful picture of the Triune God of Scripture.
Using the alphabet to teach about God has a rich history in the Bible, especially in the Psalms and Lamentations. Several of the psalms—notably Psalm 119—begin with letters of the Hebrew alphabet, forming an acrostic that spells out the entire alphabet.
The authors make learning theology fun and effortless. Their book shows God as he is, not “just to know about him more in our brains, but to know him as the God of glory who reigns.”
“Biblical professor and parent, Jonny Gibson, and hip-hop artist and parent, Timothy Brindle, have crafted a readable and reliable series for basic Christian doctrines. We parents just might find ourselves discovering some new treasures along with our kids!”
– Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology, Westminster Seminary, California
“An Acrostic Theology for Kids series is a fun and engaging way to introduce kids (and their parents!) to important Bible words and concepts!”
– Nancy Guthrie, Author of What Every Child Should Know About Prayer
“With the need to instruct young children in the truth of God’s Word never more urgent than it is today, this attractively produced primer, The Acrostic of God, provides an effective resource for parents and others—both engaging and soundly biblical.”
– Richard B. Gaffin Jr., Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology, Emeritus, Westminster Theological Seminary
The Unfolding Book
How Christ-centered is the Old Testament? Does it just contain a few predictions about Jesus, along with some shadows and types?
In The Unfolding book, Timothy Brindle further unpacks the content of The Unfolding album with a corresponding chapter for each song’s lyrics to show you how all of the major themes of the Bible’s one story of redemption unfold from Genesis to Revelation culminating in Jesus Christ and the salvation of His people.

“Make no mistake about it, Timothy Brindle is not just a hip-hop artist, he is a scholarly theological thinker and succinct writer. Your reading of his insights will prove beneficial as he reflects on how Scripture interprets itself and the ways that great scriptural themes like prophet, priest and king are woven together in the tapestry of the organic unfolding of Biblical revelation.” − Dr. Peter Lillback, President, Westminster Theological Seminary
