Adam and Eve's relationship with God was broken. But God gave mankind a promise. And what a great promise it was! The promise of salvation! He promised that one would come who would crush the head of the lying serpent, one who would deliver mankind from their sin, one who would restore man and woman's relationship with God.

    Everyone loves a good story. For centuries people have gathered to tell stories. Some stories are simply fun. Others are life-changing. The Promise: The Amazing Story of Our Long-Awaited Savior by Jason Helopoulos is a story of the latter variety. Indeed, it is a story about God’s plan for the nations. It’s not just any story - it is his story. This short children’s book is a creative way to teach biblical theology to young minds.

Others are life-changing. The Promise: The Amazing Story of Our Long-Awaited Savior by Jason Helopoulos is a story of the latter variety. Indeed, it is a story about God’s plan for the nations. It’s not just any story - it is his story. This short children’s book is a creative way to teach biblical theology to young minds. Pastor Helopoulos begins in Genesis 1:1 with the creation narrative. He walks readers through the six days of creation and proceeds to show how sin entered the world and ruined everything. The remainder of the book focuses on various ways that people tried to find peace with God. In the end, the reader is confronted with the reality of the gospel as the Lord Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners, the one who was promised in Genesis 3:15: The author writes: In this child, the promise came. He was the one who would crush the head of the serpent, deliver mankind from their sins, grant them his righteousness, work in them his holiness, give them his life. The Promise not only accurately unfolds the precious promise of the Redeemer; it is beautifully bound and includes stunning illustrations on each page by Rommel Ruiz. The blend of art and theology geared to children of all ages makes this book an important part of family discipleship. It is a book that can and should be read multiple times and discussed with children. Such a book can be passed from one generation to the next and introduce children to God’s redemptive plan for the nations. Highly recommended!

    For beautiful and striking illustrations, and an excellent way to take children through salvation history throughout the Old Testament, this book gets four stars. The story is also told through a suspenseful way that my 5-year-old, even though he actually knows the answer to the question of "who can save us," still kept asking as we kept reading, "so who is it?" However there are two important missing pieces. First, never once in the book does the author state that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

However there are two important missing pieces. First, never once in the book does the author state that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. I had to insert this myself while reading it out loud to my child. This would not have been a difficult praise to add, in the end where all His other attributes are mentioned. Secondly, as expected, in this book salvation is through penal substitutionary atonement, a decidedly Protestant theology about salvation. Orthodox Christians do not speak of salvation in this way. Protestant and maybe Catholic readers will enjoy this book, Orthodox Christian readers not so much.

    This Christian nonfiction picture book is absolutely gorgeous, and tells the story of redemption with attention to all of the different biblical characters who lived and died without being the promised ones. The text emphasizes that even though people might have looked for salvation through someone like Noah or Moses, or through a great judge or priest, all of these men fell short. They were sinners too, and they also needed a savior.

The text emphasizes that even though people might have looked for salvation through someone like Noah or Moses, or through a great judge or priest, all of these men fell short. They were sinners too, and they also needed a savior. The text builds to a point of suspense, and then it introduces Jesus, telling his story and showing how he was the perfect one who fulfilled all of the roles that previous, flawed heroes of the faith had foreshadowed. The Promise is a great book for Christian families and churches. Jason Helopoulos writes in language that is simple enough for young children without watering down important concepts, and the illustrations from Rommel Ruiz are incredibly dynamic, with showstopping, colorful representations of biblical scenes. His unique art style and use of colors to indicate mood greatly appealed to me as an adult reader, and I think that children will connect with this as well, especially since it is so different from other books they might have seen before. My one critique is that this book never explicitly states that Jesus is divine, beyond mentioning that he is Immanuel, “God with us.” The ending focuses on how Jesus lived up to the standards no other human could, fulfilled God’s promises, and restored our relationship to God, but I wish that the text had made it clearer that Jesus is the Son of God, not just a perfect man. I am sure that this was just an oversight, but that is why I am only rating this book four stars. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    "I’ve said before on here that I’m no judge of the quality of art, but the art of The Promise looks pretty solid to me. It is creative and matches the themes, mood, and tone of the text well. In other words, the art appears to be excellent to my untrained/inexpert eye. Likewise The Promise provides an excellent overview of the first three chapters of Genesis, and a solid Biblical theology (in children’s form, of course) of the Old Testament and how it points to Christ.

And as with most of these books, there’s nothing inappropriate or unorthodox in the book. It is fine to read to children and will undoubtedly make an excellent addition to most children’s bookshelves (the problems I’m going to mention momentarily aren’t the sort that will be noticed by or matter to kids). And yet, there are a couple of big issues here." Read the rest here: https://www.patheos.com/blogs/schaeff...

    This book is a good summary of the Bible story for someone who has never heard the story of the gospel before. It is well written and helps give a good base for a gospel discussion.
