Learn chess, from board to pieces to moves to strategy, using stories from the Bible.

"Daddy plays chess so Mummy can help," said our youngest son in second grade. So Mummy helped. I coached our tiny elementary school's chess team all the way to Nationals! Then we moved to the States and I coached kids in elementary, junior and even high school. But my kids grew up and left home. And then... our local church ran a summer camp and I got to revive my chess skills. Daddy still plays in serious tournaments, but I'll never be that good. Some of the kids I've taught might be though...

Fully illustrated in black and white throughout.

Excerpt
In The Beginning

A long time ago God made the world, and the trees and the flowers and the birds and the bees and the mountains and the seas. One day God sent a flood to wash away all the bad things in the world. A man called Noah sailed a ship called an ark and landed on top of a mountain and was saved.

The Board

The chessboard is your world when you play chess. And the middle of the board is your mountain. Mountains are important in battles as well as in floods. Soldiers standing on high ground can see and shoot further. In chess you’ll find lots of your pieces are more powerful in the center of the board, just as if they were standing on a hill.

The Law of Gravity

God made the world with lots of laws so things like science and nature would be able to work. The law of gravity keeps our feet on the ground. The laws of genetics tell our bodies how to grow. The laws of thermodynamics control the weather. The world needs laws, and so do we.


(picture of the world with everything falling away)


The First Law of Chess

Chess has laws too. The first law of chess tells you how to put down your board. If you put your board down wrong you won’t be playing chess at all! It would be like trying to read a book back to front, or wearing your tee-shirt on your legs.

LAW #1: There’s always a light square on the right.

Chess is a game for your brain, like reading and thinking. It’s hard to read your moves and think about your position if you’re playing SSEHC instead of CHESS, so you should always make sure there’s a light colored square on your right when you set up your board.
