About the book: Paul traveled all over the Roman Empire telling people about Jesus. But his life wasn't always easy. Read about the life of Paul, from the time he first became a believer to the completion of his mission and learn why he is a Bible hero.

About the Author: Nancy I. Sanders is the bestselling children's author of over 80 books including Frederick Douglas for kids. She lives with her husband, Jeff, and their two cats in sunny southern California and has tow grown sons.

My take: Apostle Paul was an amazing person and to show your children just how great of a person he was, give them the book Get to Know Apostle Paul, by Nancy I. Sanders. This book has four guidelines for children to follow for a better understanding: a foot - Bible Hero, an Egyptian eye - Eyewitness Account, a water jug - Did you know?, and a scroll - Word Bank. There are also pictures of maps (which have journeys mapped out on them), buildings, artifacts, places and people. They are brightly coloured and really draw your attention toward them. This book also has Bible texts splattered throughout.

The author did an excellent job with the writing style. She made it simple enough for a young reader to understand, yet complex enough for an adult to enjoy reading. The important words are bold typed with definitions at the bottom of the page and in glossary format at the back of the book. If you or your child want to gain a better understanding or even learn about the Apostle Paul, this book is for you. If you enjoy it, you should also check out the other books in the series, which are Jesus, Mary and King David.

This book was given to me by Booklook Bloggers for my honest opinion.
