Kirkus Reviews
The Christian Bible is skillfully summarized in 50 episodes in this accessible, illustrated interpretation. The book is arranged in five sections, each preceded by a short introduction. The thoughtful design also includes one or two explanatory sentences at the beginning of each episode, which help to place that particular story in the larger biblical context. The relevant Bible chapters and verses for each story are listed, along with short verse extracts printed at the sides of many pages. The verses are taken (or in some cases adapted) from the Good News Bible. Each Bible story is retold in five pages of text, which include spot illustrations on every spread that are supplemented by one full-page illustration per story. The text is smoothly written, with an engaging style that incorporates lots of dialogue, and the violence that is part of many Bible stories is minimized. Attractive illustrations with a soft focus and muted palette are sophisticated enough to appeal to older children, and the volume's small-but-thick size also gives it the look of a book intended for children in upper-elementary grades or middle school. An excellent choice for family reading or religious education programs. (Religion. 7-13)
