Facing the Blazing Furnace is a re-telling of the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and the fiery furnace which can be found in the Bible in the book of Daniel. Overall I think it is well done and is easy to understand. The story is accompanied by big, colorful illustrations.
At the end of Facing the Blazing Furnace is a page containing "People in Bible Times" (which has an illustration and description of King Nebuchadnezzar and quotes Daniel 3:28) and "Live It!: Trusting God for All Things" that gives a short explanation of how the three men trusted God and how we should, too.
The I Can Read! / Adventure Bible series are categorized as reading level 2 ("Reading with Help") and the stories do not feel "choppy" like you might find in some learn-to-read books. With a retail price under $4 per book, I find these books to be a great value.

The pictures are very complementary and my favorite is the one with the men coming out of the fire unharmed! Another great biblical lesson on obeying God!
There are so many different book series for kids these days. I want to make sure my son gets to read all of these from Adventure Bible to supplement what we learn at church and talk and pray about at home. Now to see if I can order a few more of these books by Adventure Bible before Christmas! (Posted on 12/19/2015)

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were faithful servants that day even when faced with death. They were willing for their God to go above and beyond. Many people these days refuse to do that for God. We have a lot to learn from these young men and their story.
Specifically, created for ages 4-8 and is a level 2 reader which means a beginning reader can read it with some help.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author. (Posted on 12/17/2015)
