Review of Get to Know Apostls Paul by Nancy I.Sanders

Book review of Get to Know Apostle Paul by Nancy I. Sanders

Apostle Paul—part of the Get to Know series—is a unique biography about Paul. Focusing on the life and character of this Biblical hero, using color photographs, maps, and other visual resources to tell the whole story, young biography fans will come to learn more about this man of the God, his writings, his impact on the early church, and the role he plays in history.
Featuring a bibliography and scriptural references throughout, this is sure to become a favorite for young readers and for first book reports.

Leona's Review:
This is the fourth book of the Get to Know Series. They are Get to Know Jesus, Get to Know Mary, Get to Know King Saul and Get to Know Apostle Paul.

The author, Nancy I. Sanders has written wonderful books that are for the children but as an adult, I learned a lot.
These are great Christmas gifts and also gifts for Jewish children. The books are reasonably priced so one can get the four Get to Know Series for a child. Read the books with them a chapter at a time and let them do further studies on the subjects.

This book focuses on the Apostle Paul and the book begins with the young boy, Saul.
There are maps and also symbols such a Sandal for a Biblical Hero, an Eye for Eyewitness Account, a Clay Jar for Did You Know? and a Scroll for a word bank.
