User Review  - Methia Weems - Christianbook.com

The Bible Answer Book for Students is wonderful. My 12 year old nephew had many questions and enjoyed reading from the adult version, Vol. 2. Now that he has his own answer book, he has become more aware and studious of God's Word. I'm grateful. Read full review
