My Big Book of Bible Heroes Devotional by Glenn Hascall

From Barbour Publishing:

My Big Book of Bible Heroes Devotional is great for any child if you want to read it to them from toddler through school age. If the child can read, I think a child up through about 10 or 11 would enjoy reading this as their devotional. I loved the way that each story would name the hero for a specific account of their lives in the Bible and how that affected their relationship with God. Each one was a hero of something whether it be compassion, bravery, strength, etc. Each one's story pointed back to Christ as the reason that they were redeemed in some cases, and why they stood up for right like they did. What I also liked was that the book hit on many little- known people of the Bible that are not often mentioned in children's Bible lessons like Jochebed, Josiah, Hezekiah, and more.  The book was also honest about the fact that our Bible heroes were just like us in that they weren't perfect and needed God to accomplish what they were heroic for. When they got to the story of Jesus, a simple and clear Gospel message was thoroughly presented. Each story was about a page long, and was written in a focused kid-level way. Each one had great graphics almost like a comic book with the Scripture passage where you can find the account in the Bible. Each devotion also contained a short verse that pertained to how the character applied doing right in their lives. There was also a short prayer at the end of every devotional that helped the child focus on God, and understand how to ask the Lord to help them apply the truth they learned in their lives. At the end of each section are a few simple questions to help reflect and really help kids apply the truth to their lives. Again, my favorite part is that the book doesn't just tell good stories. Each story points back to Jesus and the Gospel in a simple, applicable way that any kid will enjoy and understand! Great resource for my child and also for teaching children Bible lessons! Don't miss out on this great resource for you as a parent, grandparent, or even a teacher.
