Ephesians 6: 10 -18 Review Plus Giveaway!

Children learn about the protective armor of God, and how they can apply this Biblical principle. Relatable illustrations help clarify the verses and applications presented, while historical facts support the concept of the armor.

What I Like:  In Ephesians 6:10-18, each piece of armor is described with scripture and an easy to understand explanation of the scripture. The author, Agnes de Bezenac - who is also the illustrator, used a Roman soldier's armor as a visual to help a child understand the meaning of the Armor of God. Each piece of armor is highlighted on a separate page.

The illustrations in the book are awesome. I really love them. They are all so full of detail and add an element to the story beyond just seeing a picture. My eight year old son read this with me and the illustrations invoked conversations about how he thought the images related to what he read.

What I Dislike: The title of the book is a little unimaginative and I would have much preferred Armor of God as opposed to Ephesians 6. Although I know the book is based on Ephesians 6,  the scripture on each page didn't include the book name, chapter or verse. I found it a little bothersome because I didn't know which verse I was reading. I also prefer that it be included to help children memorize it.

Overall Rating: Very Good!

Age Appeal: 7 and under, but my 8 year old liked it.

I love books that cater for younger ones to have a greater understanding and love for God. This seems to be a great book.

And the illustrator is...? Not mentioned but equally as important in creating a picture book.

Agnes de Bezenac is both the author & illustrator.
