King of Glory

King of Glory
by P.D. Bramsen

What a creative way to present the Bible!  I was immediately impressed and drawn in to this book.  In a time where graphic novels are very popular, this presentation of Bible highlights is long needed and sure to draw in a new audience in a way print Bibles might now have.

Geared toward teens and young adults, this book is appropriate for adults as well.  Taking a small sampling of the most famous and well knows stories in the Bible, this book presents the stories in a format of pictures that, in addition to short descriptions and scripture verses and references.  Set in scenes, more like snap shots of the bible, the illustrations are beautiful and full of detail that fully fit with the story on the matching page.  70 scenes and stories taking the reader from creation through Christ's coming return, all major pieces of the bible are covered.  Written as a story about a kingdom, a King with a secret plan and epic plots for rescue, this book is sure to capture any reader.

King of Glory is appropriate for readers from any culture, as it presents the story of the Bible in a non-confrontational or preachy way that is engaging and intriguing.  A book I highly recommend and fully intend to keep as a part of my library.

I received this book free from the publisher through the book review program, which requires an honest, though not necessarily positive, review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s CFR Title 16, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”I was in no way compensated for this review.
