Book Overview

Based on Acts 16, this is a fun and compelling retelling of how a Philippian jailer and his family learned the wonderful truth about Jesus Christ.

The ascended Jesus' ongoing power to save through the proclamation of the gospel and through the presence of the Holy Spirit is imaginatively and powerfully brought to life by Bob Hartman.

Bob is a compelling storyteller and author of the Lion Storyteller Bible, which has sold over 130,000 copies in the UK and has been translated into 11 languages, and of YouVersion's Bible App for Kids.

- Jesus' ongoing power to save through the proclamation of the gospel and through the presence of the Holy Spirit.
- The powerful witness of Paul and Silas, who sung while they were held captive and refused to break free when an earthquake destroyed the prison they were trapped in.
- How they can tell others the good news of Jesus Christ.
- How to imagine the sights and sounds of a Bible story.

Ideal for children aged 3-6.

   Fun & Biblical!
What a fun read is this! It is biblical, shares the gospel more than once in a repetitive way and is fun at the same time. As well, beautiful illustrations are included.

   Great book
My daughter wanted to read this for a few weeks every night. They did a very good job of delivering transformational truth in a fun story format.

   Well written!
I bought this for my third birthday of my nephew. I was so impressed with how the writer and illustrator captured the truth of this story and did not hide some of the more difficult details. It presented the story, the suffering experienced by Paul and Silas, and brought such a hope-filled perspective. I can 't wait to give him this!

   Pass unless you want to talk about suicide with your kids
I 'll stay on board until they don 't find a safe and kid friendly way to tell the part about the guard who wants to kill himself. I don 't think that suicide is an appropriate topic for young children. This part could easily have been made kid friendly, but focusing on how scared the guard was, how he was worried about how much he would be in... They didn 't have to go into all the details that they did. My children have lost their father, so that death is not theoretically important to them. They first know that it happens and I don 't need to explain to a 4 -- 6 year old that some people kill themselves on purpose.

   Character wants to commit suicide. Not appropriate for young kids (or any kids)
Normally, I love these books, but this one, I was horrified when the prison guard takes his sword to take his own life. I am sensitive to this as a survivor of a parent suicide. Whether it is sensory or not, I think that is way too much to be in a children's book.

   AMAZING!
My favorite book of my daughter! The truth is told throughout the book beautifully and the phrases repeated are key! I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun and yet biblically sound book for their children. So far, all books in this series that I have read are great, but this is a fav!

   Wow! Just Wow!
Wonderful illustrated book of the biblical account of Paul and Silas. I love the questions that involve the children and the application at the end. Book is beautiful! Can 't wait for my son to open it on Christmas Day!

   Adjust for Younger audience
I like the theme of the song throughout the book ; it caught my attention and was a good summary of the story. Beautiful artwork, as usual in this series. The jailer's particular suicide thoughts are, though, too young for my children. Thought it was a good introduction as they get older. The book ends with us telling others about Jesus, so a good meaning of life ends for the particular subject.

   Not for young kids
I love this book series, but this is a little scary for younger children. Will probably buy once my children are older.

   ANOTHER GREAT TITLE FROM THE GOOD BOOK CO.
This new title from Good Book Co. is another winner. Just $15 for 32 pages in the hardcover, it uses wonderful text and wise pictures to bring Acts 16 to life and reinforce the message about Jesus, who died so we can live forever, who sent his Holy Spirit so that we can follow him as our king. Not a one-and-done like some reed-thin good '' Christian kiddie books, this is one that littles can enjoy pore over, thanks to the generous illustrations and fun text.
