With a cover that sparkles and shines with foil, this is a special storybook Bible that will appeal to both children and parents alike.
Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
If I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
If I settle on the far side of the sea,
Even there your hand will guide me,
Your right hand will hold me fast.
~ Psalm 139: 7–10
About the author and illustrator:
Doris Wynbeek Rikkers is a freelance writer and editor who has written many bestselling children’s books and Bibles. Although she loves the ocean, she lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, surrounded by her books, her flower gardens, and her family and friends.
Spanish artist Fernando Juarez illustrates children’s books and also works as an art supervisor at the Madrid studio Ilion Animation. The company produces 3D feature films for children. Fernando has three kids himself, and if he has any time left after work and family, you might catch him playing guitar in a rock band.
This is a really nice hardcover edition that is perfect for sharing with children. It is the perfect size to snuggle up with and read. What stands out to me the most is that every single page is so different! Not only just the illustrations, but the amount of text on the page, how the text is presented, and where on the page the text is. It is a book that will definitely hold a child's attention as there is so much detail in the illustrations and the stories are written at a level that a child can understand and not be overwhelmed or confused. There are 40 stories and it is a nice mix of stories from both the Old Testament and the New Testament. Each story focuses on the Spirit of God, His presence, His power. Some accounts are more commonly heard and known, but there are a few that will most likely be new or not as common for most making this a nice mixture included as well. This would make a nice gift and a good book to help children about God and who He is.
