Book Review - "101 BIBLE ADVENTURES" The Ultimate Quest for Truth! by Carolyn Larsen
Good Evening to All!
I have been reading "101 Bible Adventures" The Ultimate Quest for Truth! by Carolyn Larsen. This book has everything in it to peak a child's interest. Shipwrecks, superheroes (with the power of God), fierce battles, plagues, diseases and not at all the least of them, super natural Miracles! What a wonderful way to introduce God's Wonderful Word to our children!
About the Author
Carolyn Larsen is the mother of three children who lives in Illinois. She has written more than 40 books for children and adults. She is best known for as the author of the "Little Girls Bible Storybook" line of products.
Even as an adult, I have heard many times how the Bible has every type of genre of books in it. It has mystery, romance, war stories, and much more.
This book is packed with 101 Action-Packed stories ever written. It will keep your kids on the edge of their seats. Each story features a short overview so that the kids can get an idea of the Bible story and the "big picture" of what they will be reading about. It also has a key verse that sums up the story's meaning, and a small application section that will challenge kids to make their faith active.
101 Bible Adventures is 215 pages of wonder for children. It is easy to read with lots of illustrations. Just what the children would like. It is written in the New Living Translation, so the kids won't have any problem understanding the content. I like it and I think children would like it because of it's size. It's not so thick that they can't retain what it says.
Even as an adult I can't really get into thick books because I can't retain all of it's information. By the time I get to the middle, I have forgotten what was said in the beginning. This books is full of lessons and information, but short enough that a child with a short attention span or even an adult like me could handle the retention of it.
It makes reading about the Bible fun and at the same time instilling the concepts of God, such as forgiveness, love, building good character, choosing, as well as being good role models. All the while they are learning these things they will be growing in God's Word and realizing that even though they are young they are still "running the race" toward God's eternal Home.
I have no children, but I'm sure if I did, they would love this book. Our children are our future. They need to know about God's Word and His promises. This book is a great way to get them interested and they will start growing from there.
It is perfect as a gift for any young reader, and makes a wonderful addition to any library. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has children.
I received this free copy for reviewing it from Tyndale Publishers. I have received no other compensation for my Review and every opinion written in this review is strictly mine.
Good Night to All and May God Bless!
