~ Carine MacKenzie, author of the highly recommended Bible Wise and Bible Time Series, has written The Bible Explorer: God's Truth from Genesis to Revelation. This book is essentially a Bible reference tool for children. the book works straight through the canon providing basic summaries of key sections. A two-page spread is devoted to each section, which surveys either a key story or event and, sometimes, an entire book. Each two-page spread then contains several types of information. In addition to a basic summary of the story, event or book there is a "Think Spot" (application), a memory verse and a "Fact File" (more detailed information or definition). Each piece of information is also coded by a certain icon so that one can trace a common theme straight through the Bible allowing children to see how the Bible holds together. There are also useful maps and a timeline before each testament. The book is visually attractive and will be very useful for slightly older children.

The Bible Explorer is a book for young people from 10 years upwards. It is based on the concept of a home page on the Internet. Each page has a menu bar, which shows what part of scripture you are exploring, Old or New Testament; it also tells you whether it is law, history, poetry, prophecy, gospels or letters. It also tells you the Bible reference. There is a link section on each page, which covers prayer, salvation, prophecy, animals and emotions. An explorer icon links connecting Bible stories. Every page has a think spot and memory verse. This is an excellent resource for young people who are interested in Christianity. It gives good clear explanation of Bible stories. The modern layout is very attractive and is simple to use.
