In 'Angels in the Bible Storybook' Allia Zobel Nolan takes us directly to scripture and leads us from the first appearance of angels to discover who these mysterious creatures are. There are thirty total stories, fifteen from the Old Testament and fifteen from the New Testament. As the stories unfold we get to see the angels in their primary roles of praising God. We also see how God uses them to bring news to His people, help His people when they are in sticky situations, and comfort His people when they are struggling.
As an adult I enjoyed reading through this concentrated account of angels. If you are like me you will take away such a blessing from being reminded that these amazing creatures do God's bidding to lead you down the path that He has set before you.
I loved Alida Massari's illustrations! They have an old world meets mixed media feel that is pleasing to the eye. While the pictures are beautiful and do a marvelous job of enhancing the book, it is the stories themselves that make the book worth reading to your children. As you read through these thirty biblical accounts you will help your kids understand who and what angels are. That will be an invaluable thing as they grow and enter into the world. Knowing what the real thing is all about will help them recognize and avoid the impostors.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
Allia is equally familiar with her subject matter – angels in the Bible. She re-tells fiften accounts of angel appearances in the Old Testament and fifteen accounts of them appearing in the New Testament. She begins every account with the Scripture reference telling where the event is told in the Bible. I found the references helpful, as a couple of the situations caught me by surprize, though they turned out to be correct.
Many of the stories will be familiar to children who grow up in a Christian environment, though some are less familiar and/or a little difficult to explain to children. Allia Nolan rose to the occasion, however; and brought the stories down to a child’s level.
The illustrations are fresh and colorful and will delight children. Some of the angels appear with wings and some do not. Beginning with the introduction, there are several places in the book that give general information about angels and how they appear to people. A few of these facts are that they are mighty in stature, they sometimes look like people, and the good angels have to fight fallen or bad angels.
What I like best about this book: The creative and thorough way it comes together – making it likely to become a favorite with many children and their families.
What I like least: The stories include a lot of dialog that does not appear in the Bible. This is one the the things that makes writing Bible stories for children difficult, as most biblical accounts are quite brief and written for older youth and adult readers. To make stories come alive for children, it helps for the writer to apply child-like imagination and fill in a little extra dialog and or backstory. I encourage parents to challenge their children, when they are old enough to do so, to read the stories in the Bible (the references are already written in the book for you), and sort out what is fully biblical and what has been added.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars/smileys. Wonderful book!
I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest, though not necessarily positive, review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s CFR Title 16, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
Each story begins with a truth about angels that is depicted in the story. For example, "Angels don't call to let people know they plan to visit." or "Angels usually appear to people while they are awake - but not always." The scripture for each story is provided, as well, allowing for further study.
