    I went into this with trepidation. I feel like I remember Paul as one of the ones that says a women's place is in the home and that gay people are bad. It has been a long time since I read his gospels, so I could be wrong. I did have a reading from him in my wedding, because I do like ...

    Very interesting book - it takes the loooong letters of Paul and distills them down to a couple key concepts and ideas, easy to digest and remember. My favorite is definitely II Thessalonians, when the illustration shows Paul downing a glass of wine while telling them to stop being ...

    I needed this. I know that Paul's epistles are more intricate than Raschka's portrayal of them here (and I love them for that), but I'm so grateful to have these simple messages to comfort and chide and reassure me until I make time to dive more deeply into the books. "You refresh the ...

    I love how the letters of Paul were interpreted so kids could understand their message. I wish more things were broken down like this when I am listening at church! ...

    Hooray for a children's picture book about Christianity by a Caldecott award winning author and illustrator! This book simplifies the apostle Paul's epistles for young children. Boldly colored illustrations accompany the text offering readers a visually appealing aspect to their learni...

    I?ve never seen a book like Paul Writes (a Letter), but I?m so happy it is now in the world. The wonderful two-time Caldecott winner, Chris Raschka, has taken the letters of the apostle Paul to Rome and Corinth, Galatia and Ephesus and Thessalonica, and the letters of Paul to h...

    Chris Raschka's art is not my favorite style. I have enjoyed his Caldecott-winning picture books and used them in my library story times. However, his illustrations, while true to his style, are perfect for this pared down re-creation of Paul's message to the early Christians. So effec...

    Very interesting idea for a children's book. I really enjoyed this. The book captures some of the apostle Paul's letters he wrote to others. ...

    Chris Raschka uses the life and letters of Paul to remind us of important things we need to remember in relating to others: love, grace, care, strength, honesty, purity, and patience. He uses Paul?s words as cautions as well: reaping what you sow, loving money, picking fights, etc. A...

    In the case of Raschka's recent book, there has been a perfect pairing of artist, content, and publisher. A quick Internet search will link you to hundreds, probably thousands of books aimed at making Biblical content kid-friendly and accessible. But PAUL WRITES (A LETTER) is so much...

    Chris Raschka uses gentle hues in his pictures and calligraphy and clear, friendly phrasing in his presentation of the apostle Paul's letters to make this biblical figure accessible to today's children and adults. This book would make a great Sunday school read-aloud to show how parts ...

    Such a unique book! It takes the letters of Paul from the Bible and parses them down for children. Love the illustrations! And the main theme - love your neighbors and follow God?s teachings. ...

    Jan 28, 2019
    Raschka paraphrases the letters of Paul with jaunty script and in easy to understand phrases for anyone (references included). Paul's letters never felt more like letters. These can be some of the more boring passages for children, but they've been brought to life in this book. I'm...

    Book for younger readers. Raschka simplifies the texts of Paul's letters. He supports these with illustrations of Paul writing and other symbols for his message. ...

    Paul is probably my favorite person from the New Testament (...maybe Peter? a difficult choice) (after Jesus, obviously) and this picture book summary of his epistles does not disappoint. Absolutely delightful. ...

    Raschka introduces Paul and depicts him writing his various letters that appear in the Bible. Raschka picks a few verses from each and rephrases them in his own words. A great intro to Paul and his epistles for kids. I really appreciate that Raschka included the references he paraph...

    Chris Raschka has made a wonderful picture book out of all the letters of Paul. Each two-page spread contains a distillation of one letter along with an illustration of Paul writing, as well as some items he might typically have around him as he wrote. In some images he's eating or dri...

    In a series of letters, writer and illustrator Chris Raschka continues to spread the message of the Apostle Paul in Paul Writes (a letter). A one-page introduction outlines Paul?s calling to share the teachings of Jesus and each subsequent spread summarizes the messages of one of the...

    It's very interesting how, in this book, the only reference to Jesus is in the introduction and that Raschka has reduced the content of Paul's letters to some kind of secular self-help advice. ...

    I read this book because I loved "The Hello, Goodbye Window," illustrated by Chris Raschka, written by Norton Juster. Eye-popping watercolor illustrations of Paul at his desk, writing his timeless epistles. Clever paraphrasing, such as "Dear Friends in Corinth, I am sorry I have not co...
