Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 2-6-This large, handsome, clearly written collection of Bible stories, very freely retold, is suitable for Christian schools, church libraries, Sunday schools, and family usage. The theme is "God's relationship with his people," with a strong emphasis throughout on Christianity. Selections are included from the accounts of Creation; Adam and Eve; Cain and Abel; Noah; Abraham, Isaac, and Sarah; Joseph; Moses and the Ten Commandments; Samuel; David and Saul; Elijah; and Isaiah. About half of the selections are devoted to the New Testament: the life of Jesus, including John the Baptist, the Disciples, the Lord's Prayer, the prodigal son, and the miracle at the Siloam pool; Pentecost; Paul; Dorcas; and the early church. Using her personal opinions, the author chooses only the portions of the Bible stories that highlight her purpose of showing the many ways in which God has shown and is showing himself to individuals and transforming their lives. Each section has an introduction relating to readers' everyday lives, Scriptural citations, thought questions, and prayer suggestions, and is illustrated by an attractive quarter-page watercolor in a folk-art style, as well as title decorations.-Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
