Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This book presents an engaging compilation of Bible facts, history and stories. Each topic is colorfully presented alongside photographs, computer images, archaeological maps and cartoon clips. Young readers can participate in the discovery of the Bible's mysteries as the authors lead them through treasure hunts for Bible principles and historical facts. Osborne and Bowler also chronicle the history of Bible publishing and translation and offer descriptions of each book within the Bible. Children will also learn to use the tools for Bible interpretation (e.g., concordances, Bible dictionaries) along the way. Osborne and Bowler use the same format to explore the life of Jesus in I Want to Know About Jesus: Who Jesus Is, What He Did, and Why He Died for Me (Zondervan, $9.99 (32p) ISBN 0-310-22087-4). The authors describe in simple terms Jesus' birth, boyhood, ministry, death and resurrection, and set his life and work in the context of the Roman Empire in which these events took place. The authors' inspiring presentation of Jesus' miracles, teachings and responses to enemies will likely be just as instructive and challenging to young readers today. Generous photos, sidebars, cartoons, and vivid pictures of contemporary Jerusalem and environs offer young readers a closer look at what life may have been like for Jesus. Ages 7-10. (Mar.)
