Archive for the ‘Children’s book’ Category

In several different occasions online I have seen the question asked about recommended Christian children’s book.  This is one that I do highly recommend.

Marty Machowski.  The Gospel Story Bible: Discovering Jesus in the Old and New Testaments.  Greensboro, NC: New Growth Press, November 1st 2011. 328 pp.

Purchase: Westminster | Amazon

Several people have told me they thought this was one of the best Bible story book for kids.  There are many Children’s Bible and Children’s Bible story books out there so I was skeptical when I first heard it until I discovered that the author told Old and New Testament stories in such a way as to point the readers back to Jesus and the Gospel.  I thought that was what made this book unique among children’s book out there.

What a long week last week has been for me!  It was busy both on our blog and offline with ministry in light of Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday.  As readers will notice this past week we dealt with various attacks by skeptics concerning the final week of Jesus.

As a bit of a break this Sunday evening I read and reviewed a Christian children story that’s appropriate for this Resurrection Sunday which I imagine some of you would appreciate.

I have previously enjoyed the author’s Christian children’s book titled The Priest with Dirty Clothes.  Written by Christian theologian R.C. Sproul, I appreciated that this book was biblically solid and yet enjoyable for young ones.  My three little girls who are all pre-school age also enjoyed this book when I read it aloud to them.

Among the hundreds of books I have reviewed on this blog over the years this is the second time that I reviewed a children’s book (the first was God’s Servant Job: A Poem with a Promise).  I am reviewing this book because I really enjoyed The Priest with Dirty Clothes by Christian theologian R.C. Sproul.  My three little girls who are all pre-school age also enjoyed this book very much and the book has led to deeper conversations about spiritual matters.

God's Servant Job Douglas Bond

Douglas Bond. God’s Servant Job: A Poem with a Promise.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, October 31st, 2015. 32 pp.

This is a children’s book on the book of Job in the Bible.   The book is really a poem by Douglas Bond for kids on the story of Job and his suffering.  I was surprised at how much the author was able to rhyme while also retaining the structure of the book of Job.  I read this to my children who are all four years old and under and I think they were able to follow along though I think this book might be intended for elementary school age kids.
