To most of us in the realm of Christian literature, including some new bloggers and book reviewers such as myself, Jennifer Lyell is anonymous author. But, with her newly released storybook bible, THE PROMISES of GOD, from B&H Kids Books, her anonymity is sure to diminish.
In Lyell’s storytelling writing style and through dramatic, yet, somewhat dreamy art, from Thanos Tsilis, both author and illustrator adapt the Old and the New Testaments into one year’s worth of stories for kids and parents through titling each devotional week as a unique promise of God.
Not a big book–such as B&H’s EPIC Bible– The PROMISES of GOD Storybook Bible, The Story of God’s Unstoppable Love, looks and holds like a early reader chapter book; and, its hardback cover shows a night scene where a worshiping Moses is looking heavenward to God–the Beginning and Ending of all.
