Our children's reviewer at CatholicMom.com kids reviews gave this book a ranking of four stars, stating "Hot Pursuit. Battle Cries. Secret Plans. The Thunder of Chariots. What could be more exciting to a boy? In this book, boys can find out about all the adventure in the Bible. If your chld thinks that the Bible is just a boring book of people wanting to be holy, this will prove them wrong. Action packed illustrations and maps along with easy-to-read stories show children battles like the Siege of Jericho and the Battle of Ai. Also, this book covers a different kind of war: the fight between God and the devil whenever you have to make a hard decision. This book encourages you to "Get Smarter, Stronger, Deeper, and Cooler" in your faith. In short: buy this book for your action-craving child."
In terms of its contents, the book is not an exhaustive look at the battles or weapons of the Bible by any means, although it is at least a somewhat representative sample, starting in Genesis 14 with the warfare in which Abraham armed his own servants to rescue his kidnapped nephew Lot , moving on to the warfare of Israel against Amalek  and also against Sihon and Og, the cities of Jericho and Ai, the treaty with Gibeon and its aftermath , Gibeon’s struggle against the Midianites, the fall of Shiloh and the temporary loss of the Ark of the Covenant , the death of Ahab in battle against Syria, the siege of Samaria by Syria, the fall of Israel to Assyria, the siege of Jerusalem by the Assyrians, the fall of Jerusalem to the Babylonians, and a couple of chapters on spiritual warfare and Armageddon, which is a bit of misnomer.Read more ›
