- Great book about angels! by Julia on 3/5/2016
Do you believe in Angels? How about the ones you see on TV? Do you think they look “real” or portray what a real angel is like? I do believe in Angels! I am not sure what they look like to know if what is portrayed in the media is accurate, however I think that God sends us angels at different times for different reasons to help us on our journey here on earth.
In Allia’s book, Angels in the Bible Story book, she uses concrete evidence from the bible that shows us angels do exist! Allia pulls from the new and Old Testaments, (15 from each), to show the reader, in an easy to read format, the part angels play in helping us and serving God. There are many stories in the Bible where Angels are shown as messengers and they are also shown as a "siren" used to warn of bad, like Herod. What a great book to help illustrate the important roles that God’s angles have serving him.
- Review from Rambles of a SAHM by Fitzysmom on 1/14/2016
When you think of angels how do they appear? What do you imagine their roles are in our day-to-day lives? The culture around us tends to give a distorted viewpoint that can be confusing especially to our children. So where do you go to figure out who they are and what their role is?
In 'Angels in the Bible Storybook' Allia Zobel Nolan takes us directly to scripture and leads us from the first appearance of angels to discover who these mysterious creatures are. There are thirty total stories, fifteen from the Old Testament and fifteen from the New Testament. As the stories unfold we get to see the angels in their primary roles of praising God. We also see how God uses them to bring news to His people, help His people when they are in sticky situations, and comfort His people when they are struggling.
As an adult I enjoyed reading through this concentrated account of angels. If you are like me you will take away such a blessing from being reminded that these amazing creatures do God's bidding to lead you down the path that He has set before you.
I loved Alida Massari's illustrations! They have an old world meets mixed media feel that is pleasing to the eye. While the pictures are beautiful and do a marvelous job of enhancing the book, it is the stories themselves that make the book worth reading to your children. As you read through these thirty biblical accounts you will help your kids understand who and what angels are. That will be an invaluable thing as they grow and enter into the world. Knowing what the real thing is all about will help them recognize and avoid the impostors.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
