Review: Facing the Blazing Furnace by:David Miles

Facing the Blazing Furnace
About the Book:
When King Nebuchadnezzar orders everyone in his kingdom to worship a golden statue, three young men refuse to obey. They disobey the king and risk death in the fiery furnace.


 Find out what happens in this Level 2 I Can Read written and illustrated in the tradition of the bestselling NIV Adventure Bible.


Perfect for beginning readers ages 4-8, learning Bible stories on their own.

My Review:
 Standing up for God? Will you do it? Will you do it faced with a death that is imminent? Because that is what 3 men had to do very long ago. They had to because a king wanted them to submit to him and they refused because that only submitted to God. But what God does best is what He did that day, as well. He showed up and He showed out! He showed that king that His children submit to noone and that He will in fact deliver them.

 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.
