Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
More of a sermon than a prayer, the rhymed text tells how young Jabez (cited in I Chronicles 4:10), whose name means "pain," was teased by his peers but rose above his problems by asking each day that God bless him, enlarge his territory so that he can spread God's influence, and keep him from evil. Therefore, Jabez has no problem resisting the devil's temptations and earning many blessings. Extrapolating from Jabez' joyful experience with the Lord, children are assured that God loves and cares for each and every one of them. They are encouraged to serve the Father by helping and healing, secure in the knowledge that God's power will allow them to succeed. In sketchy but dynamic double-page illustrations that are lively and expressive, Jabez is depicted as a fair, blond, blue-eyed youth in a sleeveless tan robe who appears larger than life in most instances. The format is large and handsome. 2001, Tommy Nelson, $15.99. Ages 5 to 8. Reviewer: Patricia Dole
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Several adult and children's versions of the best-selling Prayer of Jabez book are currently on the market. The basis for the books (and other related products) is the shepherd Jabez's prayer in the Bible (I Chronicles 4:10). In his prayer, Jabez asks God to "bless him-enlarge his territory-and keep him from evil." This reading of the thoughtfully poetic book Prayer of Jabez for Young Hearts is combined with eight songs written by award-winning Barney songwriter Bob Singleton and Martha Bolton. Three of the songs, "God Is So Good," "Cast Your Burden," and "Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee" will be familiar to most listeners. The others, original songs specifically written for this project, appropriately reinforce the book's text. The mostly synthesized songs are pleasantly presented by adult and children singers. A varied playlist includes everything from melodic prayerful songs to the syncopated, calypso styled "Cast Your Burden.: Following the stereo version is a split track version for easy sing-alongs. Bruce Wilkinson, the author of the Jabez books, narrates. The Jabez books have received quite a bit of criticism in some Christian circles for calling attention to what some see as a selfish, minor prayer, and the market seems a bit saturated with tie-ins. This particular title, though, is nicely produced, and is appropriate for general listening, church school lessons, and church performances. Patrons who have enjoyed the balance of the series will appreciate this audio version for children.-Kirsten Martindale, Buford Academy, GA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
