This week is our last in the book of Psalms as a church. I thought I'd bring our attention to some new books out by Carine Mackenzie. The latest books in the "Bible Alive" series for ages 4-11 are David the Shepherd, David the Soldier, David the Fugitive, and David the King. This is an addition of four little books to her "Bible Alive" series, which already includes six Jesus titles and four Moses titles. Each of the books engages children as the stories are retold from key biblical texts. A distinctive of the series is its strong focus on salvation. In David the Shepherd children learn lessons of courage, and in David the Soldier, about trusting God in times of waiting. David the Fugitive tells of God's faithfulness and David the King presents God's forgiveness. These are great resources for talking to your kids about the man behind many of the psalms. I received a complimentary copy of David and the King from Christian Focus as part of the book blog tour. This did not affect my opinion of the book in one way or another.
