My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Adorably cute book for the very young. Short and colorful without leaving out anything vital. I showed the book to a young friend and we ended up sitting down for over an hour. She really enjoyed the book and wanted to take it home with her. While not in depth the book covers the important aspects and plants those much needed seeds in the young. I can easily recommend this for anyone who deals with the young. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review through Tyndale Blog Network. This in no way influenced my opinion.

Blood Moons Rising by Mark Hitchcock

Blood Moons Rising: Bible Prophecy, Israel, and the Four Blood MoonsBlood Moons Rising: Bible Prophecy, Israel, and the Four Blood Moons by Mark Hitchcock
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I feel this book is well written and that the Biblical view of the significance of having the upcoming four blood moons is well presented. The work is intelligently written and organized with several appropriate references to help the reader locate where the information comes from. I would recommend this book to those with an interest in Biblical prophecy or just a curiosity about the blood moons both in history and our future.

My Time with Grandma Bible Storybook by Phil A Smouse

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a cute book with large brightly colored drawings sure to capture young children’s attention and short basic Bible stories written so their young minds can understand them. The notes from “Grandma” are cute but not what my grandmother would say. Some may find this book adorable but I think with a broader written method it could be made more applicable to various readers who might be spending time with a young child and teaching them about God through these stories. This is defiantly written for the very young. My 9yr old said they were baby stories but he liked the drawings. I received a copy through the publisher in exchange for an honest unbiased review.

My review:
I admit sometimes it feels like a chore to sit down and read my bible. After looking through this one I can say I enjoyed each session with the easy to follow path and extra insights and tidbits of information. I started out with the flyover then changed to scenic route. This is very well done and entertaining while staying true to His plan. It’s the whole Bible plus so much more. A definite worthwhile purchase. I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest unbiased review.
