The Frightening Philippi Jail by Gary Bower

A Faith that God Built book

This is the second Faith that God Built book that I have and I really, really like them. For any of you that know the book "The House that Jack Built" it is the same idea. There is an initial sentence and every line is added to it, so that by the end of the book, you have the whole story on the final pages, but it is fun to read it and to hear it build on each other. It does rhyme as well adding to the charm of reading it.

While there's not a specific age attached to the book, it's just called juvenile nonfiction, my two year old loves these books. Since I just got this one, I don't know how she will like this one, but the other book we have, (she calls it the "Ark book"), we read a couple times a week at least. So I'm thinking this one will also be well-liked.

This book is about Paul and Silas being in jail and singing praises to the prisoners who were "crusty and cold with nothing to nibble but crackers with mold". And then how God set them free and saved the jailer. It's a nice little story and I am happy to add it to my collection.

The pictures are well done as well. To me they very well portray the creepiness of what a jail cell would have looked like with the bugs and rats and slugs.

I was given this book by Tyndale House Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review.
