Review 1 for Discovering Jesus in Genesis: Covenant Promises for Covenant Kids
Date:April 26, 2011
This is a very well-written and engaging book! It introduces kids to some difficult doctrines and uses stories to illustrate each principle. My kids loved it and so did I. I found myself in tears from time to time at the awesome love of God. Highly recommend!

Review 2 for Discovering Jesus in Genesis: Covenant Promises for Covenant Kids
I guess it reflects my ignorance but I did not understand the words "covenant theology" when I ordered the book. I thought we're talking about the covenants God made with Noah and Abraham, etc. No. This book is a child's introduction into CALVINISM, no more and no less. If you're a Calvinist you'll be happy to see that now there are books for children which super-impose the Calvinist viewpoint unto the Bible. If you're not a Calvinist you'll want to stay away from this book. Instead of "Discovering Jesus in Genesis", I suggest the book should be called "Interpreting Calvinism into Genesis".

Review 3 for Discovering Jesus in Genesis: Covenant Promises for Covenant Kids
Date:March 1, 2005
This book is awesome. It uses a story format to introduce children to covenant values of the Bible. There is a memory verse for each story, along with questions at the end. This is very well written. Your children will have a good understand of God's covenant with us, His deep love for us, and how we can show that love to others. Highly recommended!
