Looking for exciting Bible storybooks for 8–12 year olds? Check out Barbour’s Young Readers’ Christian Library for the stories of David, Elijah, Samson, and Mary, mother of Jesus. Carefully retold for kids, each book is illustrated with line art to help readers envision the characters and setting of the story. In Elijah, young readers will get to know the powerful prophet, the victor of Mount Carmel who was taken to heaven in a whirlwind, learning lessons of faith that will benefit their lives today. And a special “secret code” feature adds fun to the whole package, as readers can discover an encouraging secret message woven throughout the entire book.
MarmouraToronto, ONT.Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5This book does not follow what the Bible saysFebruary 12, 2014MarmouraToronto, ONT.Gender: femaleMeets Expectations: 1The book starts by saying that Elijah went to meet King Ahab and Queen Jezebel accompanied by his young servant Reuben. I would like the author to tell me where in the Bible does it mentioned that Elijah had a servant by the name of Reuben. Then the book says, the ravens brought enough meat for the two men to have a hearty breakfast. If you go to the Bible, 1 Kings 17, it stats clearly that Elijah was alone when he went to see Ahab and was alone when the ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and evening.
I bought this book to read first before ordering more to give to my Sunday School children, and was greatly disappointed. I read only the first two chapters and couldn't continue.
I do not recommend this book at all, because if I'm telling the children a Bible story, it has to be what the Bible says, not what the author wants to imagine.
