Review: Apostle Paul Get to Know Series by Nancy I. Sanders
"Apostle Paul - part of the Get to Know series - is a unique biography about Paul. Focusing on the life and character of this Biblical hero, using color photographs, maps, and other visual resources to tell the whole story, young biography fans will come to learn more about this man of the God, his writings, his impact on the early church, and the role he plays in history. Featuring a bibliography and scriptural references throughout, this is sure to become a favorite for young readers and for first book reports."
When I am searching for new books to review, I often am looking for myself. Our book budget goes to text books and books for the children mostly so the best way I am able to read new books is by reviewing them. But, after a friend's recommendation I went back and chose this book, and I am so glad I did! It is fantastic! It is packed full of information about Paul, including his child hood and how he was raised on through his time in Rome and his death. It even includes background information. For example when the book talks about Saul being from the tribe on Benjamin the book discusses the twelve tribes and where they came from. It also includes full color illustrations, maps, photographs, art work, and even a time line. Also, vocabulary is defined on every page. At the end of each chapter is a section that includes: eyewitness accounts, did you know trivia, and information on Bible Heroes discussed in the chapter.
Apostle Paul, part of the get to you know you series is a wonderful resource for children and even adults may learn a thing or two they didn't already know. I am definitely looking for other books in this series to add to our book shelf
