Brave Girls Bible Stories
Subtitled, Celebrating Great Women of the Bible, this is a Bible story book with a unique focus: encouraging brave living. Each Bible story shows how God uses ordinary girls to do amazing things for Him just by following His lead! To relay the stories, you are introduced to a diverse group of five girls: Hope, Glory, Honor, Gracie, and Faith, who form a youth group called Brave Girls. They work together to know God more and honor Him by telling others about Him. Each girl tells a different Bible story (18 stories from the Old Testament and 13 from the New), connects it a bit with her own life, and then ends each with a brief devotion-like summary and a one-sentence prayer. The predominant focus is the Bible story, but full-color, water-color type illustrations fill the accompanying page. Note an interesting layout choice: occasionally, you must turn the book to read a few stories that are set in landscape mode. An additional section adds a brief quiz to see which brave girl you are most like. This seems a bit of a fluffy touch, but I think the goal is to help girls identify the talents with which they can glorify God. The ending contains a 5-page collection of "Brave" verses that serve for Scripture memory, and a letter from the Brave Girls. While sharing crucial Bible truths, I think this devotional might also encourage girls to live in faith and fellowship. 7/25" x 9.25", 208 pp, hc. ~ Ruth
