The World of the Old Testament: A Curious Kid's Guide to the Bible's Most Ancient Stories 

The stories of the Old Testament present modern readers with a world completely foreign from our own. Curious kids riveted by these stories are likely to come away with questions. Who were the people who lived in the time and place in which these stories were set? How did they work? What did they eat? What were their families and tribes like? How did they fight? What did they believe about God, kings, enemies, and the world around them? And above all, what does any of it have to do with how we read and understand the books that make up the first half of the Bible? The World of the Old Testament: A Curious Kid's Guide to the Bible's Most Ancient Stories answers these questions and more, with charts, graphs, maps, and other infographics that will keep kids' attention for hours, and send them back to the Bible with surprising new insights and understanding.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR & ILLUSTRATOR

Marc Olson is an author, tinker, and theologian who lives and works in Saint Paul, MN. In addition to working as an educator, bus driver, garbage hauler, and undertaker, Marc served as a Lutheran Pastor for a handful of years. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Pacific Lutheran University and a Master of Divinity from Luther Seminary. He was also awarded the Seminary's International Preaching Fellowship in 2007, which resulted in a year abroad, studying and teaching with his family in Tanzania as well as Israel and Palestine. He is the father of two grown children, Sigurd and Dane. Marc's partner, Sara, has three teenagers: Ben, Maggie, and Ted. Together, this whole family helps take care of Marc's Basset Hound, whose name is Bruce.

As a child, Jemima Maybank was inspired to draw exotic animals as the next best thing to having them. Her style is inspired by the minimal shapes and subtle use of textures seen in mid-century children's books, and she makes sure to include nature in her work. She lives in England.


PRAISE

"...Utterly fascinating from cover to cover and a "must" for personal, public, school, and church library collections. Highly recommended!" 
— Midwest Book Review

"Aiming to remind young readers that "Jesus was a real person who lived in a real place during a specific time in history," this overview offers general pictures of 1st-century life and society in what Olson calls Palestine, with particular attention paid to the era's Jewish practices and Scriptures."
— Kirkus Reviews

"The World Jesus Knew is a beautifully illustrated book that will be a family favorite that kids and adults will come back to over and over again."
— Midwest Book Review, Christian Shelf

"Written in a down-to-earth style that kids can connect with, and it also includes fantastic illustrations!"
— Play Eat Grow Blog

"Jesus appears throughout this smartly designed book, but it's primarily about his world, one that is depicted in fascinating, crisp detail, with almost every topic one could think of covered here."
— Booklist Top 10 Religion and Spirituality Books for Youth Feature

What types of shipping services do you offer?

We are thrilled to ship to the US and around the world. We offer Media Mail and Priority Mail via the United States Postal Service and other similar services. All orders are processed in the order they were received. All USPS shipping fees are based on our costs to ship to you and may shift ever-so-slightly from day-to-day, as they update in real time. 

First Class International shipping prices range from $25-$40 USD and depend on the destination. International customers may also be charged an additional tariff fee when retrieving their packages from post offices. We are unable to include it in the cost of your item and shipping currently. We understand international shipping is a bit more expensive. We hope to have more international options as our volume increases, but in the meantime placing a group order with your friends will reduce the international cost and give you a group discount!

Can I change my shipping address, email or payment info?

Because our orders ship daily, we may not be able to change your information before your order is processed and shipped. For that reason, please verify your shipping address at checkout before submitting your order. If you find an error, contact us as soon as possible and we will try our hardest to make corrections before the order goes out.

What is your return policy?

We do our best to describe and depict each product with great care and detail. For that reason we created the FREE Essentials Workbook to give you a closer look at the design of our planner. The Essentials Workbook will help you evaluate if our product is a good fit for you before you spend any money. You can often purchase digital sample months of the planners to try before you buy. Our planner isn't a perfect fit for everyone, though. We haven't set out to be. It's not possible! That said, let us know if you find an issue and we will do our best to make it right.
