This book for kids on the history of the Bible looks quite good. Ray Van Neste recently provided a helpful review of The Book of God: How We Got the Bible, by Ben Avery & Javier Saltres (Kingstone Comics, 2012) at his blog. Van Neste comments,
A graphic novel on the production and preservation of the Bible? Brilliant!I had no previous awareness of KingstoneComics until I happened to see this book in Sam’s. I was intrigued by the idea and bought it, curious to see how faithful it would be. I really liked what I found inside.With nicely done comic book graphics this book is divided into four parts:1- The Production of the Bible: How the Bible Was Written2- The Process of the Bible: How the Bible Was Selected (Why these books and not others?)3- The Preservation of the Bible- How the Bible Was Spread4- The Proof of the Bible- How the Bible Has Survived and is Trustworthy
Product Description: Many people believe the Bible is divinely inspired but are not exactly sure of the process by which we got the Bible. The Book of God takes readers on an incredible journey through the historical process of how God delivered us a written revelation both of Himself and of His message to mankind. This one-of-a-kind graphic novel is a faith builder for people of all ages.
