Over the years, I have read a number of children’s books about the Bible. One of the best short books that I have read is Jesus by Dan Larsen, published by Barbour in its series, The Young Reader’s Christian Library (ISBN 1-55748-100-8).
This book has 13 chapters that total 201 pages and a 10-page dictionary for young readers. Every other page is illustrated and has a brief caption at the bottom of the page.
I remember finding the book so captivating on one occasion that I read the entire book through in one sitting. The book vividly and powerfully presents Jesus to the reader in an engaging style suitable for both children and adults.
I have found this work to be an excellent book for young believers and have also used it as an evangelistic tool.
