Prints in 3-5 business days
COIL-BOUND PAPERBACK. When asked by my grandsons (7 and 10) a series of questions such as, "How did sin enter the world?" I realized that writing a summary of the Bible for them would be... More > appropriate. I am sure other youngsters are asking the same questions, leaving the adults in their lives in a quandary, so this summary will be good for adults as well. It takes a very long time, even going to church on a regular basis, to put the pieces together and form a general picture of the Bible from start to finish. I decided, after reading the entire Bible and doing considerable research, to put pen to paper. Thus, "The Bible: A Summary For My Grandsons" was born. Each page of text is accompanied by relevant, full-color images, giving the text even more meaning. This book will serve as a reference for years to come, and may spawn an interest in the reader to learn the complete Bible story in greater detail.< Less
