Better than American Idol (which I love) !!! Feb 14, 2008
I REALLY liked the first book in the Bethany series. I have read it five or six times and I am still not tired of it. The book really taught me a lot about the Bible and things that go on 'behind the scenes.' I liked learning things that aren't taught much these days. I can't wait until other books in the Bethany series are out. Sarah, age 11
I love it! Feb 14, 2008
I am 11 years old and in the fifth grade. I love this book because it is interesting and exciting. It challenges me to learn more about the Bible and the Old Testament. It is a story about a girl named Bethany and her experience with meeting an angel. It is fun for me to read about a girl close to my age traveling around with an angel and learning all about the Old Testament like it was happening today. I would recommend this book for kids my age. I can't wait to read Mr. Kearse's next book. He is the best! Anna Leigh (11)
Written for the Young, Enjoyed by All Jan 9, 2008
Kearse has developed a great adventure story that bridges the secular with the spiritual in a powerful fashion. Young Bethany Clarke has a burning desire for a cute puppy dog, but can't get one because of a family secret that causes a lot of tension before she launches into her time-travel journey where her dream of owning a dog comes true. Back in time she experiences a host of characters who stretch her mind and strengthen her beliefs. Whether it's her angel friend, Gabriel, her doggy buddy, Oba, or the mysterious character, the "Old Woman I Know", the reader is sure to connect with this book that explores the power of faith and relationships. An outstanding book for the whole family to read and enjoy!No Time To Kill
Several audiences for the book Feb 7, 2007
Bethany is a great book for children who can read up to about age 15. It is also excellent for teachers who plan to teach sunday school to children of all ages. Bethany is even interesting for adults. Its a very clever and interesting story that takes a young girl and her dog on a journey through the Old Testament. I would highly recommend it for all faiths and particularly Jews and Christians.
A Fun and engaging book full of adventure and learning!! Aug 10, 2006
I never knew learning about the bible could be so much fun. While reading the book I did'nt even realize that I was learning. I would recomend this book to people who love to read a good adventure. I first read the book when I was in fifth and sixth grade and now that I am in going into seventh grade I realize how much it helped me understand more about the bible. Mr. Kearse was my sunday school teacher and I absolutely loved what he taught us. This book is great because it is the kind of thing Mr. Kearse taught and a great adventure.
