The purpose of presnt study was to investigate how to answer to children’ questions about God. The main research question therefore was how we answer to children’s questions about God in a way that the answers be easily and fully comprehended and simultaneously do not cause any misunderstanding. For doing so, descriptive and inferential research methods were used.
