"....the gospel narrative of how God redeemed a broken world through sending His son Jesus...."
I found it to be a beautifully rendered book in print form. However, once you get past the brilliant coloration of the pictures and actual pages, you find that the type is smallish and actually difficult to read as presented with color backgrounds and contrasting type coloration. The artist has rendered the characters interesting. The style is not one I would choose, but I am certain it will be appealing to some. As I said, the colors are beautiful, brilliant, and the book is sturdy and well made.
My perception is that parents can use this book as a teaching tool for devotions with their children. It will be a refresher for the older child or for the adult on details of the Bible stories as well as an opportunity for the adult who is not well-versed in Bible to learn.
