Holy Spirit Mystifying Scriptures

Holy Spirit Mystifying Scriptures by Carol Pitts is a really unusual book that I have recently come across. It combines Art and scripture with a difference. For each scripture passage there is a specially drawn picture which shows the visual meaning of the passage.

It was the first time that I saw illustration and scripture mixed together giving the reader a better visual representation of the scripture. Looking at the illustration  makes it easier for the child to understand what  the meaning is behind the chosen scripture reading.

My thoughts

I showed this book to my 6 yr old. She didn’t really like the book as it was hard for her to understand the illustration in relation to the scripture.

My 12 year old could relate the pictures to the text better but he too commented that her preferred a having a comic style Christian book to read.

I personally found the book rather refreshing to read as it is different from the normal scripture book which one may pick up from the Christian book store. However I too found it hard to relate some of the illustration to the scripture that it was associated to.  This was because the illustrations are rather modern day art and  not the type that I was use to viewing.

If you are into a differentiated scripture reading experience do pick up a copy to view.
