Book Review: Illustrated Bible Journey by David Kim


Illustrated Bible Journey: #2 Hebrew Heroes in Egypt by David Kim

About the Book: A 17 year-old boy who got most of his father’s love was hated by his brothers. One night he dream, and when he told his family about the dream it only caused more hatred from his brothers. Finally, one day when he went looking for his brothers at his father’s wishes, his brothers did something terrible to him! He was sold as a slave to a foreign country…

Many years later in another story, the population of the slaves were growing so fast in Egypt that Pharaoh became afraid that Egypt could be overtaken by the slaves. So he ordered all boys to be killed when they were born, but there was a brave woman who hid her son. She put him in the basket and floated it on the river…

What would happen to this poor baby?


My Review: Illustrated Bible Journey is designed to give readers a deeper insight and understanding of the bible. The illustrated Bible takes you on a graphic journey from Jacob and his twin brother Esau to Joseph and his 11 brothers to Aaron the older brother of Moses to Pharaoh a king who oppressed the Israelites.

Illustrated Bible has large pictures which are realistic and vibrant plus the prints are big enough to read.

The stories are accompanied with colored photographs of related historical sites and architectural buildings, historic sculptures and the people that relate to the story. The table of contents includes Jacob Returns, Joseph, Pharaoh’s Dream, Joseph’s brothers, The childhood of Moses, Moses runs away, A tree on fire, Moses and Pharaoh and Plagues in Egypt. Children and adults will find this book interesting and exciting to read.

I highly recommend this book.
