Word Wise: God’s Amazing Book – A Review by Ben Ramsbottom

Category Book Reviews
Date December 16, 2009

This is a book for children (aged 8-11), and we feel it is a good one.

Briefly, simply and clearly the story is told, from creation, through the Old Testament, down to the New. Special emphasis is given to Genesis and the Gospels. Great reverence is shown for the authority of Scripture and much stress is laid on God as the Creator.

The book is illustrated and there are many word searches, jumbled sentences, number codes and crosswords. However, we were pleased to note that the jumbled sentences or words are never the holy Word of God.

Just in one or two places the wording could have been more exact, and parents will need to explain. For instance (page 28): ‘The Bible teaches that anyone can receive the Lord Jesus Christ,’ where the simple point seems to be not just one race or class or nation.

We think most parents will feel Word Wise will be a help.
