As the mother of three sons and a daughter, comic books, manga books, and other graphic novels find their way into our home. So when I saw the opportunity come up to review Covenant Kids Book 1 – The Law, I was excited about the opportunity.
My children are currently 23, almost 21, almost 19, and almost 17, but when they were younger, I would have loved for them to read this Biblically-based comic book by Andrew Youngblood.
Andrew Youngblood has been teaching Scripture to students of all ages for over twenty years. But his own children inspired him to write a graphic novel. While his own talents as an artist might not be there, his wonderful team at Sky Blue Ink were able to turn his Biblical adventure into an incredible work of art.
Combining the present with Biblical accounts of the very beginning, Mr. Youngblood has been able to capture Biblical truth and facts with present-day information. I loved the drawings as well as the story.
I found the blurbs in each frame to be easy to read and understandable. Designed for children ages 7 to 13, I feel this is a worthwhile graphic novel for this age range. Based on the idea of living in a place where it has recently become illegal to study or even talk about the Bible outside of church on Sunday, Naomi decides to form a study group with three other teenagers so they can learn more about the Bible. With the climate in our country today, I feel this is a relevant and worthwhile subject for children to read and learn about now. The graphic novel format may reach children who otherwise may not be interested in hearing about the Bible.
As they learn about the Bible they recognize God has a plan to bring everyone into a loving and close relationship with him through his Covenant. But these teens, as well as children today, need to recognize that not everyone wants to hear about God’s love.
This graphic novel is the first in a series of twelve to bring the truth of God’s Word and love to children. So if you have children in your life who need to hear about the Word of God and strengthen their faith, check out this graphic novel for yourself.
