Children’s Book Review: Christmas Releases of The Good Book Company This October

The Good Book Company recently dropped some Christmas treats for kids. It’s one jolly bunch of books about the birth of Jesus Christ. So today, I’ll be reviewing them here, including sample pages of each book. Click on the title to get yourself a copy.

The Christmas Surprise (Stephanie Williams) – What I like about this book is that it didn’t quickly dive into the birth of Jesus. Rather it starts with a brief look on the “promise” made by God in the Garden of Eden and Israel. It revolves around people being surprised by Christ coming. The ending would be a good springboard to explain the gospel message to kids. The art is nice, it goes along with the story and appeals for the young reader. But the scene with the angel telling Mary about having a baby is a bit exaggerated. Still a good read for you and your kids.

Book Review: “The StoryChanger” (David Murray)

The redemption story never gets old. It’s the essential story that is not just for the unbelievers but for us who are the elect. It’s the story that we see also in secular movies and books (good vs. evil). This story, God’s story is not just a feel good narrative. It has the power of transformation. David Murray’s new book, The StoryChanger shows us this power that changes lives.

Comicbook Review: “A Reign of Beasts” (Andrew Carman and Jared Boggess)

Summary: The prophet Daniel wakes up from a vision that is filled with horrific imagery. A prophetic dream (or nightmare) which shows Titans or kaijun emerging to battle humanity in the near future. Then as he nears the end of his, then comes a “Son of Man” to do a rescue mission.

Cover Art: This is just a foretaste of the art that you’ll experience inside the comic. And just by the cover (without giving away the details) you’ll find this is not the usual comicbook artwork. The monsters are scary looking and brooding over Daniel. It gives you that vibe that they’re menacing Daniel in his dream. The purple or maroon (color blind on digital copy) color instead of black still delivers that insidious feel to the reader.

(Author Interview) Gary Millar

There many reasons why folks don’t read the Bible. Let me highlight some of them here. One is that it is so mystical that we can’t read and understand what it’s message. This reason is connected with the second one that I think people don’t bother to pick up the Bible. That is the Bible are for those intellectuals or Bible scholars. In his new book, Read This First, Gary Millar blows these obstacles and help readers to get into reading the Bible. I reach out to him and ask a few questions.
