Book Review: Great Kings of the Bible

Great Kings of the BibleGreat Kings of the Bible by Deepak Reju is comprised six to seven mini-stories about Kings Saul, David, and Solomon. The stories have full-page illustrations, rich colors and large print to help keep young readers/listeners interested. I appreciate that this book, like many other CF4K titles for younger children, is printed on colorful, heavy-duty paper that is kid-friendly, aesthetically appealing, and  holds up well to regular reading.

Great Kings of the Bible accurately summarizes the Biblical accounts of Saul, David, and Solomon and does children an excellent service by showing them how each of these kings compare to the greatest King, Jesus Christ. Deepak Reju doesn't sanitize these Bible characters but shows how each of them was a sinner in need of a Savior, just like us and our children.

If you're looking for book to  gently introduce your young children to Saul, David, and Solomon, you will likely find Great Kings of the Bible beneficial. My children (ages 5 to 11) enjoyed this book.

Many thanks to Christian Focus Publications and Cross Focused Reviews for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion!
