Paul Meets Jesus is an “I Can Read” book, which is written in simplistic terms, perfect for children who have just learned how to read. For example, one page of text says, “One day, Saul was walking down the road. He was on his way to a city where followers of Jesus lived. He wanted to arrest them.” The book is thin and 32 pages long. It is published by Zonderkids, and each page features illustrations by David Miles. The book is part of an “Adventure Bible” series of Bible stories.
I think that the best thing about this book is that it tells the story of Paul in a way that young readers can understand. Some of the illustrations have an underlying humorous tone, such as the picture of Paul wearing a name tag with “Saul” crossed out, and “Paul” written on it instead. The story has a clear structure to it, showing how Paul spoke out against the Christians, then experienced a transformation and started preaching the Good News of Jesus Christ. The book is positive, and it reminds children how wonderful it is to rely on God and trust in Him.
