Review: Imagine The Giant's Fall by Matt Koceich

To Purchase

The last thing fourth-grader Wren Evans remembers (before the world as she knew it disappeared) is getting off the school bus to discover her house engulfed in flames. What happens next can't be explained as Wren finds herself in a beautiful valley with a shepherd named David—in ancient Israel! 

My Thoughts:

Wren Evans is transported back in time (or it may be just in her mind), but Wren is in Bethlehem meeting up with David. This story is told from Wren’s eyes as she watches David’s heroic actions with a bear and a lion and eventually with Goliath.

This is the fourth in the Imagine series and follows kids as they go on Biblical adventures. You do need to suspend reality a bit but this is a fictional story that tries to show these kids that they are important.

One complaint is that David is just only a side character. He doesn’t seem to know what is really going on with Wren. Their communication is curious. There also are some strange spiritual aspects that surround her life as well.

Other than that it is an exciting fictional story, if not Biblically accurate.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
