I recently had an opportunity to review the book: Get to Know Jesus by Nancy I. Sanders. This book is part of the "Get to Know" Series. Other books in this series include one on David and Mary.
And after just spending a few days with this book, I can guarantee you that we will be adding the other books to our children's library.
A unique biography about Jesus, it focuses on the life and character of this Biblical hero using color photographs, maps, and other visual resources to tell the whole story. Young biography fans (and their parents!) can come to learn more about this man of God and the role He plays in history. It features a bibliography and scriptural references throughout as well.
What is even more fun is that, while I grew up in the church and have spent time visiting Biblical sites in the Middle East, I am still finding so much new stuff -- things that I didn't know throughout the pages. There is so much to learn as a new scholar. But as a veteran, I also find it incredibly educational and intriguing.
The book and pages are sturdy and colorful. It is well organized with great color photos. My only slight complaint was that a few times throughout the book some of the maps and photos don't seem to explain very clearly what is featured in the image. In addition, I found one error near the end of the book where Jesus' year of baptism is incorrectly attributed to BC instead of AD. However, truly, those are really looking for a problem. Overall, this book is simply delightful!
