Book Review: The Spirit of God Illustrated Bible on tour with Read with Audra

Where can I go from your Spirit?

Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

PSALM 139:7–10

The Spirit of God Illustrated Bible brings to life more than 40 Bible stories that help readers understand that God’s Spirit has been with us since the beginning of time and continues to be with us today. From the glory of creation through the powerful letters of Paul, God’s Spirit is living in his people. Old and New Testament stories such as Adam and Eve, Abraham, Joseph, the Baptism of Jesus, and Pentecost come alive with dramatic illustrations by Fernando Juarez and moving text by Doris Rikkers. This is a special storybook Bible that will appeal to both children and parents alike.


Doris Wynbeek Rikkers is a freelance writer and editor who has written many bestselling children’s books and Bibles.
Although she loves the ocean, she lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, surrounded by her books, her flower gardens, and
her family and friends.

Spanish artist Fernando Juarez illustrates children’s books and also works as an art supervisor at the Madrid studio Ilion
Animation. The company produces 3D feature films for children. Fernando has three kids himself, and if he has any time
left after work and family, you might catch him playing guitar in a rock band.

                                                         MY THOUGHTS
This book was perfect for my 5 year old. He wants to read more of the Bible, but has a heard time understanding it all. This has beautifully illustrated pictures that brought the biblical stories to life. I love that they touched on how God's spirit was present in all stories. Wyatt's favorite story was Noah and the Ark. 
This is not a Bible. It tells the story of how God's spirit helps in all situations. The good thing is that my 5 year old was able to understand and take away a lot. 

I received a copy of this book through the Read with Audra program. All thoughts are my own.
