I received a copy of this book to help facilitate the writing of this review.
Giants: Legends & Lore of Goliaths is an interactive book featuring historical accounts of giants from the Bible as well as tales of giants from legends around the world. It has beautiful images and fun facts. Flags from various countries lift up to reveal stories of giants. Pull tabs display accounts of creation, the flood, and giants. The Biblical account of David & Goliath is given in a fold-out 4-page spread. Readers will learn of other giants in the Bible as well as giants from around the world. It’s quite an interesting book featuring both fact and legends of giants throughout history.
The book is geared towards elementary aged children, but I think most ages will find it interesting. It’s a great starting point for discussions about various legends and points of view in different cultures.
PERHAPS MYTHOLOGY CONTAINS MORE TRUTH THAN WE REALIZE!
The word “mythrdquo; has come to mean “fictionrdquo; in our minds, and so some people take Bible accounts, Aesop’s fables, and Greek myths and place them all in the same category. But what if some of the old legends are true? Rather than dismiss these narratives, perhaps we should investigate them. In this case, the world is filled with giant legends that speak of heroes and wars. In this highly engaging book of giants you will discover
- Unique glimpses into the ancient accounts of giants from around the world
- What does the Bible say about giants?
- Full-color artistry developed in an interactive format with fold outs and flaps, booklets, and more!
- A spectacular center spread stretching 4-feet across!
It is fascinating that the ancient world agreed on many aspects of the Bible, one of these being that early in the history of mankind, a race of violent, yet intelligent giants walked the earth, were destroyed by the Flood. Through historical records, the pre-flood and post-flood worlds are reconstructed, with giants re-emerging in and around Israel, and you’ll see one more reason that the Bible can be trusted.
