The Resurrection

The Resurrection, written by Cynda Strong, is the story of Jesus from the time he was an adult up to the resurrection. It includes his triumphant entrance into Jerusalem, Judas’ betrayal, the Last Supper, his “trial” before Pilate, and the Crucifixion. There’s no mention of his praying in the Garden of Gethsemane or of Peter’s denial of Christ.

Bible verses from both the books of Isaiah and Matthew are given as reference for the text.

The illustrations, by Helen Cann, are true-to-life and expressive.

What I Like: I like short Bible stories for kids.

What I Dislike: This book is part of Concordia Publishing’s Arch series of books. Like the others, it is written in rhyme. For the most part, the rhyming is done very well; there are only a couple of places where it felt forced.

Overall Rating: Good.

Age Appeal: 5-9.
