    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?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 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 ...

    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. ...
