The Spirit of God Illustrated Bible: Over 40 Stories of God’s Power and Presence



The Spirit of God Illustrated Bible brings to life more than 40 Bible stories that help readers understand that God’s Spirit has been with us since the beginning of time and continues to be with us today. From the glory of creation through the powerful letters of Paul, God’s Spirit is living in his people. Old and New Testament stories such as Adam and Eve, Abraham, Joseph, the Baptism of Jesus, and Pentecost come alive with dramatic illustrations by Fernando Juarez and moving text by Doris Rikkers. This is a special storybook Bible that will appeal to both children and parents alike.

Where can I go from your Spirit?

Where can I flee from your presence?

If I go up to the heavens, you are there;

If I make my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,

If I settle on the far side of the sea,

Even there your hand will guide me,
Your right hand will hold me fast.
Psalm 139: 7–10

Illustrator Bio: 


Spanish artist Fernando Juarez illustrates children’s books and works as an art supervisor at the Madrid studio Ilion Animation. The company produces 3D feature films for children. Fernando has three kids himself, and if he has any time left after work and family, you might catch him playing guitar in a rock band.


My thoughts:

I really love the illustrations and the simplicity of the stories in The Spirit of God Illustrated Bible.  The most important parts are brought out for each story and told in a way that it's easy for younger ones to understand.  As you read they will be kept busy looking at the detailed pictures on each page.    You can see more of the artwork and receive a sample at Zonderkidz's website here
  


I will love reading this to my grandchildren!  This book seems suited for ages 4 to all the way past 100.  Really I loved reading it by myself.  This would make a beautiful gift for Christmas or a birthday!  

A great great read!
