Young Reader Reaction:

This book taught me more than I have ever known about the life of Jesus. Although I learned a lot, I didn’t really enjoy reading this book. It wasn’t like the books I am used to reading. It was more factual, like a textbook. There were no descriptive settings or plot twists. It was the life of Jesus. This book laid down the facts of how Jesus lived his life. That is a good thing for a book of this genre, but not a great leisure read. It was an overall six out of ten.

Parent Reaction:

The material is presented in a manner that shows reverence for the scripture and respect for the spiritual integrity of the lessons that comprise Mark’s Gospel. The author tells the stories in everyday language; dresses the characters in recognizable clothing; and illustrates people, places, and events as if they were part of today’s world.

Pros:

The author presents scripture in a manner that ignites and sustains the interest of upper elementary school children in religious education. He creates an environment representative and familiar to today's youth without losing the essence of the gospel and its lessons.

Cons:

None.
