Book Review: Paul Meets Jesus


ZonderKidz, I Can Read, series of books in conjunction with the best selling Adventure Bible has published the story Paul Meets Jesus.


In this paperback, of about 32 pages, gives us the narrative of the Apostle Paul.  From his persecution of the Church, his miraculous encounter with Jesus Himself and his travels this book gives a child a good indicative of who Paul was and his calling of taking God's Word to the nations.  Children will get to know the Apostle Paul through this short story

The illustrations are true to the Adventure Bible series.  The colors are brilliant and very captivating.  My 6 year old daughter's attention is immediately drawn to the colorful images and she even mentioned the name tag Paul was wearing on page 20.  She loved the look of Paul's grin.

Books in this series will help guide your children's spiritual development by exposing them to stories of Biblical relevance.  It is so important that our children are not caught up in fairy-tale type stories but rather are exposed to true accounts of brave men and women who left it all behind and denied themselves to follow Jesus.

In this age, when it is so common to see parents handing their children tablets and other electronic devices to distract their children, I definitely encourage parents to invest in these types of readers.  It is worth every penny and you would be sowing in your children's hearts love for God's Word!

You have probably already heard of Tyndale Publishing.  Their corporate purpose* is to minister to the spiritual needs of people, primarily through literature consistent with Biblical principles. Yes! I can definitely get behind a company that there purpose is to expose and point other towards Jesus Christ.

By the time I wanted to redeem my points, I noticed they were offering the Chronological Life Application Study Bible KJV.  I was looking to purchase this study Bible was overly excited when I saw the Tyndale Rewards Program was offering it for 300 points.

Book Review: Elijah, God's Mighty Prophet

ZonderKidz has recently published another great Bible themed book in the Adventure Bible series. Elijah, God's Mighty Prophet is an I Can Read Level 2 book.  It is geared toward developing readers.


My 6 year old daughter is loving the Adventure Bible storybooks.  She owns a few titles and enjoys reading them over and over again.  

The story of Elijah the prophet is written in a way that children will be able to understand the message of God to His people.  I love that this book includes the story of the widow in Zarephath.  It provides an opportunity for parents to instruct their children on how the widow giving the very last of what she had to God's messenger....the Lord provided for her in times of the great drought that was over the land. 

The beautiful illustrations are by David Miles. My daughter enjoys seeing the bright and colorful characters depicted in each page.  The facial expressions and gestures are right on target with what is going on in the story.  The images are captivating.

Overall, I highly recommend this series of books to parents.  The stories provide a great learning resource for children.  A set of these books would make an awesome gift as well!

Audio Book Review: The Word of Promise NKJV

Presented in dramatic audio theatre The Word of Promise New Testament audio Bible is a compelling production of the Holy scriptures in the New King James version.  The Scriptures come alive in this astounding 20 hour 20 cd compilation.

I have not listened to all 20 compact discs yet, but what I have heard so far is captivating and enthralling.  I have heard both the Book of Matthew and the Book of Mark.  The message of Jesus' sermon on the Mount is beautifully captured with an engaging composition of musical loveliness.

The stirring musical soundtrack is a beautiful accompaniment to the diversity of over 120 actors.

Although I have thoroughly enjoyed what I have been able to hear so far, I cannot compliment the packaging of this product.  The 20 compact discs are housed in a sturdy plastic case, however as I opened the case about 5 of the cd's popped out.  They do not seem to fit snug in the packaging and are stacked loosely on top of the others.  I'm hoping it is a defective case which only I received (I hope).

I look forward to enjoying the rest of the cd's in my car as I drive to church which is about an hour drive each way.

Thinking ahead to holiday gifts? Well, this dramatized Audio of the Word of God would make a great gift.  As of the date of this post this audio Bible is available for purchase at Christianbook.com at an amazingly low price of $6.99.

BookLook Bloggers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy. Click for details.Photobucket
