Bible Detective is a wonderful concept, beautifully designed and drawn. Including looking for the fox in each of the 17 biblical based scenes, the reader is encouraged to explore: Noah the good herdsman, Abraham's nomadic encampment, Slaves in Egypt, Moses the Law and the Tabernacle, Farming the Land, A Battle against the Philistines, King Solomon s Jerusalem, An Assyrian Attack, Exiles in Babylon, A Census in Bethlehem, A schoolboy in Nazareth, A fishing Town on Lake Galilee, The Temple Courtyard, The Death of Jesus, Peter Preaches about Jesus, Paul Preaches in Corinth, The Port of Caesarea. This amazing book sets the scene , helps youngsters and adults alike,to grasp the cultural background to the Biblical stories. This is a must for every RE primary school library and church and home bookshelf. We are invited to delightful detective hunt for the objects placed around the border of each picture which draw us in adults and children alike. So when you have bought and treasured a copy for yourself, get one for everyone else you know.

Format: Hardcover
I love this type of book! Children are really encouraged to look closely and gain the maximum benefit from the pictures, and their observational skills are greatly enhanced. 17 lively two-page spreads depict a variety of Bible scenes, starting with Noah collecting together the animals and finishing at the busy port of Caesarea. Each has a seriesw of small pictures around the edge, to spot in the main picture - and you'll be glad to know that there are picture keys to all the answers! The busy informative pictures give opportunity for lots of discussion and the scenes help to bring the Bible alive and give excellent impressions of the periods covered.

Lots for a child to do in this book, should keep them interested for quite some time. It was bought as a christening present for an older child and seemed very suitable for this purpose, i.e. an appropriate present to be opened on the baptism day.

An excellent buy for us. The content is plentiful and detailed, covering scenes from throughout the bible, including Acts and St Paul. It is a fantastic way to help children visualise scenes that might be difficult for them otherwise.

I'd say it is most suitable for children aged between 4 and 8, but older kids would probably enjoy it too. It is a great one to take to church to keep them quiet, you might even find a scene which relates to that day's readings.

Agree a great baptism gift for a child.

It looked really good for a young child. I was pleased when I received it and partnered it with the Activity Bible book.
