    There are three books, to date, in the "Faith that God Built" book series. I have reviewed two others and found them entertaining, enlightening, and educational with true to Scripture "telling."

    The story of the Philippian Jailer can be a bit scary to young children. With Paul and Silas being locked up in a dark, frightenting jail is a bit hard on young imaginations. Gary Bower lets the reader into that Frightening Philippi Jail where bugs, slugs, an other creepy crawlies abound in the cold and dark. But he tells about it in an imagination and mind-grabbing use of rhymes with rhythm and cadence akin to the "This Is the House that Jack Built" nursery rhyme.

    So tuck in your funny bone and get ready for a fun yet frightening, repetive rhyming, re-telling in text and wonderful illustrations about Paul and Silas in the Philippi Jail.

    Gary Bower's fabulous use of rhyme coupled with his sense of humor and splashed across the pages with Barbara Chotiner's grandly appropriate illustrations makes the reader (obviously this time it is the 'Grandma-GG' reader) want to read the book again and again. I recommend each of the "Faith that God Built Books" for libraries and homes.

    Back in February, I reviewed a children's book called The Beautiful Garden of Eden, written by Gary Bower. I chose it because I was trying to grow my children's book collection for when kiddos come to visit, and I absolutely loved that book. So when I saw that two more books from this same series were up for review, I had to get them.

    These books are part of a series called "A Faith that God Built." They are all written in the same rhyme pattern as the familiar poem "The House that Jack Built." But these books are all based on Bible stories. The two I read this week were The Frightening Philippi Jail and The Hurry-Up Exit from Egypt.

    All the same things I loved about the first one I read were still present in these books, beginning with Barbara Chotiner's whimsical artwork on each page. As I stated before, I think the artwork is as important as the wording in a children's book, and she does a great job.

    In The Frightening Philippi Jail, there were more fun phrases, like the bugs and the rats and the slugs that crawled on the crooks and the thieves and the thugs, and the shackles that fell to the floor when a chain-breaking quaking flung open the door.

    This is another story that is interesting to tell to kids, because there are certainly parts that are scary (being in jail and the jailer wanting to kill himself), but Gary kept the focus on the fact that Paul and Silas didn't even deserve to be in there, but they chose to pray and praise out loud anyway.

    The book ends like the others, by pointing back to Scripture and offering a key verse from the Scripture passage, in case you want to work on memorization.

    I'd dearly love to have this whole set of books; I think they are well done, theologically sound, and fun to read! (In fact, I offered to read them to my husband for our family devotions. LOL!)

    * Tyndale provided a copy of each book to me, but all opinions are my own. *

    I'm always willing to read a kids book! I've never read Gary Bower before and didn't know what to expect. But I was delightfully surprised.

    This is part of the Faith That God Built series. The book is extremely rhythmic as it repeats it's catchy phrases. It's very similar to the "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed A..." book series. Every page adds a new phrase to the story line and then recaps the previous events. This particular story is about Paul and Silas' rescuer from prison.

    I do believe an adult would need to elaborate on the story quite a bit more than what the book provides. At the end it references the exact scripture passage for further study.

    I enjoyed it and both my kiddos enjoyed!

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
