Yes, it looks like a kid's comic book-all hand written--with cutesy little sketches. But, read all of the intro and small print.
He warns you that in his opinion (that I completely share), everyone who approaches the Bible comes with their own unique "glasses"--no literalism for him. He also let's you know that he's decided that Jesus is the way that works for him.
Get all of the high points and biggest elements of the Old Testament, the history of the "child-people" needing constant education a
I recommend this as an introduction to the bible and understanding how social justice and Christianity go hand and hand... despite the bigoted rhetoric of the right.

I absolutely loved this book! It should be required reading. It is challenging and meaningful. I'll be reading over and over.
This books helps adults understand the Bible like children, but it is not a book intended for little kids.

Deep hope rooted imagination for all ages.

I like Erlander's illustrations and light-hearted approach, although he seems to take the material seriously enough. This would be a good book for older children as well as new members of the faith.
This is a very accessible, well-thought-out version of the gospel. I love the pictures and the style. I definitely see myself using this in ministry someday, with kids, youth, or adults. It's that versatile.
