Book Review: King of Glory by Bramsen


King of Glory is a remarkable, eloquent tool for telling the Bible that is in no way shallow. Visually striking, each right hand page has a lovely illustration by Argentinian artist Arminda San Martin depicting a Biblical scene or concept. Each left hand page contains P. D. Bramsen’s exploration of how the King of Glory’s story is played out within the purposes of God. It is chronological.

The book is marketed at youth, but I could see adults getting a lot out of this resource as well. Not only does Bramsen tell the gospel he offers theology and interpretation as well, gracefully interwoven in the story.

It should be noted that while this book tells the overarching story of the Bible, it is not a paraphrase. Instead, it is more of a commentary. It offers a few speculative details as fact, such as saying the wise men were from Persia, but nothing very serious.

I would definitely recommend this book.

I received this book free from bookcrash in exchange for my unbiased review.
