5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

My kids and I really enjoyed this book.  As the title and the cover of the book suggests this is a book with Bible stories for little children and is meant for kids between the age range of three to seven which is exactly the age range of my children.

I’m reviewing this children book!  Christian parents, though this is a little different than most children’s book this is worth considering!

Updated: Due to an observation from a friend who commented this review has been modified to reflect a theological concern.

This is a rather fun book for children on church history.  The back of the book says it is for children ages three to six which were the age group of my kids when I read this book to them.  It’s not easy trying to write a church history book for kids that age and the author Stephen Nichols should be commended for his effort as well as his attempt to make it as easy to understand as much as possible!  In what follows in my review I will first discuss about the artistic elements of the book followed by a discussion about the content of the book.  My second to last paragraph also bring up a serious disappointment with a theological concern that I do have with the book which also calls for anyone reading this to beware of one of the individuals that was profiled as a hero.

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.

Purchase: Amazon

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.

R.C. Sproul. The Priest with Dirty Clothes.  Sanford, FL: Reformation Trust Publishing, February 10th 2011. 45 pp.

5 out of 5

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.
