101 Bible Adventures
101 Bible Adventures:The Ultimate Quest for Truth by Carolyn Larsen and illustrated by Rick Incrocci is a great first devotional book for children ages 7-12 or family devotion. It's a compilation of 101 of the most action packed and adventurous Bible passages each with a brief history, key verse to note and a summarization. Each passage is short making it easy to read through one daily. I like that it includes the actual scriptural verses rather than a retelling of a Bible Passage. For the most part the summarizations are packed with great insight and questions but I do wish they were in general a little longer and more in depth. Each passage also has a cartoon illustration with caption adding a little humor throughout. I plan to read through this as our next family devotional and hope in a few years that they will revisit this on their own so I think we’ll get lots of great use out of this book.
I received a copy of this book from Tyndale for the purpose of this review.
