Gr 4-6-Multiple readers bring 67 New Testament stories to life in this fast-paced production. Events from Jesus's life in the four Gospels and the birth of Christianity in the Book of Acts through the Book of Revelation are told in chronological order with references to their Bible book and chapter number. People of faith need not be concerned about this rendering of the New Testament-the stories are factual. Mauss has created a dramatic telling using popular vocabulary, idioms, and some slang that help to hold the attention of listeners. The print version (David C. Cook, 2012) features bold illustrations by Sergio Cariello. This audio production can serve as an introduction to or synopsis for New Testament study.-Mary Lee Bulat, Harwinton Public Library, CTα(c) Copyright 2011.
