Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
If I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
If I settle on the far side of the sea,
Even there your hand will guide me,
Your right hand will hold me fast.
~ Psalm 139: 7–10

My Review:

I believe that kids should be taught about Jesus at a very young age.  If they grow up praying and reading verses, chances are they will want to continue with that as they get older.  Curl up together with your kids and experience the Bible in a fresh, new way with The Spirit of God Illustrated Bible.

Young children will enjoy reading the different Bible stories and seeing the illustrations that capture the moments.  The Bible is divided into two sections - the Old Testament and the New Testament. 

Some of the Old Testament stories include:
God's Spirit Gives Confidence to Gideon
Ezekiel Travels on the Wings of an Angel
God's Spirit and Creation

Some of the New Testament stories include:
Simeon Sees Through the Eyes of the Spirits
How Will Jesus Come?
The Holy Spirit Fills Saul

Each of the stories tells where the original accounts can be found in the Bible and each of the stories includes a verse from that book in the Bible.  Each story is told in a way that is understandable to children.  This is a nice book to start young children off with when first teaching them about Bible stories and characters.

I received book for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
