XII (Twelve) Review

Featured Books for Young Adults Religion / Bible Stories

 A whistle-stop tour through some of the more iconic stories in the bible. ‘XII’ by Robin Bennett tells in only 12 chapters some of the most well-known bible stories. Including the story of Creating, Noah and his ark and the life and death of Jesus, this book has been created to engage teens and older readers in order to spark or re-ignite an interest in the Bible. I really liked the colloquial and conversational tone used throughout the book. I found that this writing style made the stories more engaging and I could see it appealing to a 13+ audience. I liked that the author used some of the more well-known bible stories, and understand that this book has been created as a “gateway” to further Bible study. However, as stated by the author in the Epistle, the Bible is “not light reading”, and perhaps this could be an opportunity for a series and for the author to share some of the lesser known stories in the same approachable and accessible manner. ‘XII’ is well-written and I can see the narrative voice could be used effectively to engage with even more Bible text. I think that ‘XII’ is an entertaining collection of stories that is quick to read and could be used to explore and educate about Christianity and the Bible in a more effective way than initially just reading from the tome itself.
