Does anyone have opinions of James W. Beeke's books:
Bible Doctrine for Younger Children

he has 3 series --
Bible Doctrine for Younger Children
Bible Doctrine for Older Children
Bible Doctrine for Teens and Young Adults

Would these be good for Sunday school?

Joel Beeke is one of the most solidly Reformed men around. I don't believe he is KJV-Only, just a defender of the King James Version over modern versions.

As for the books you mentioned, I haven't read them myself so I can't comment specifically, but in general Beeke is one of the best Puritan-minded writers and ministers around today.

RHB is a great resource for good Reformed books in general.

Yes the books are excellent. I used the "Teens and Young Adults" books when I was in High School. Lots of illustrations and Bible references, they are well done.

I also taught from the book for older children (last year) and I also found it to be well done. Some of the parents found it confusing but I thought overall it laid out the material quite plainly.
