Now, I know you are thinking, aren’t there enough books about Jesus on the market? Yep, there probably are but I am here to tell you that The Story of King Jesus by Ben Irwin is on a shelf of it’s own. The traditional symbolic gestures that normally surround christian children’s books are not the prominent features.
And while that might disappoint some, I loved the fresh perspective that weavs the story from Genesis through the Gospels. Each step emphasizing how Jesus has been a prominent person since the beginning of time. While the book does spread the Good News the string that holds it all together are these simple thoughts:
The people tried to do it themselves.
They wanted to do things their own way.
They wanted to be in charge of themselves.
They needed God.
God needed his people.
And He made a way.
A beautiful, amazing way.
We call him King Jesus.
