Parents anxious for their children to have a good, general knowledge of the Bible from cover to cover will appreciate Carine Mackenzie's latest book of Bible stories. Each day of the year she directs the young reader to a Bible portion and skilfully summarises it in a few fascinating sentences. Somehow she manages not to lose the spiritual emphasis and each day's reading closes with a 'THINK' sentence or two with a direct Gospel application. For example, the reading on Noah and the ark concludes, 'Some promises are warnings. The wicked will be punished. But just as Noah found safety in the ark, we can find safety in Christ Jesus.' Children love to be informed and as they journey through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation they will be introduced to the wonder of God-given history. Nor are the teaching books omitted. Readings from the Psalms are included as well as some key themes from Proverbs, the prophets and epistles ' all made simple enough to engage the child's mind. Each page is made attractive by a bright, informative picture. In the introduction readers are told that they need not follow the book's daily chronological order but select passages, browsing through the pages as suits them best.
