BELIEVE STORYBOOK by Randy Frazee

When a writer puts a lot of thought into a book it is very apparent from page one, this is the case with BELIEVE STORYBOOK by Randy Frazee with Laurie Lassaro Knowlton and illustrated by Steve Adams.I started reading this book to my eight year old grandson as soon as the book arrived and we were instantly lost in the pages.

BELIEVE STORYBOOK Think, Act, Be Like Jesus is the Bible explained on a level young children can not only understand but learn from. Beginning with the story of creation the stories of the Bible are presented to help children see the Trinity from the Old Testament to the New without neglecting the Trinity.

I like this book because it does explain the reason why we are Christians and does not over simplify Scripture.  BELIEVE agrees with what he has been taught at home, what  is taught in church and what the Bible says, I did not find any major issues with Bible interpretation. My grandson loved this book and instantly declared “It’s mine!”

I only read a few pages with him but went through the book independently. In terms of Bible study this is an excellent book to use for home and church. Each chapter begins with something to “THINK” about presented in the form of a question. There is an Old Testament story which is linked to a New Testament story by a section on “The Jump to Jesus”. The chapter concludes with “The Jesus Answer” with another age appropriate question and discussion. Finally the reader is asked to “Believe” as a Key Idea and a Key Verse is given.

This book is a definite must buy! I recommend it. Buy it as a gift. Marsha L Randolph
