Criticas

PreS-Gr 1With simplified versions of basic Bible stories, this compilation targets the very young. Beginning with God creating the Earth, the first half of the book recounts key stories from the Old Testament, like the Creation, Noah’s ark, and the escape from Egypt. The second half focuses on the New Testament: the birth of Jesus, his life and teachings, death and resurrection, and the works of his apostles. Pleasant watercolor and colored-pencil illustrations grace each page. Rounded, bearded faces, happy animals, and smiling people dressed in colorful traditional robes fill the pastoral landscapes splashed with pastel hues of pinks, greens, and sky-blues. The translation is clear. However, the text takes a few liberties in emphasizing that the God of the Old Testament is amicable and quite compassionate, which may be problematic for those expecting a more authoritarian approach to interpreting the Bible. Overall, the gentle tone and pleasant ambience of the stories will appeal to most parents wanting to introduce the Bible to their children. Recommended for public libraries and bookstores.
