Kaleidoscope has once again produced a beautifully accessible paraphrase of Scripture that's perfect for younger readers! The Gentle King combines Matthew's eye for detail with excellent explanatory notes to help children (and adults!) better understand the text. This volume is a wonderful way to help younger believers catch the heart of the gospel and become oriented with the words of Christ.

-Danielle Hitchen, Catechesis Books


The Gentle King is an engaging, faithful telling of the book of Matthew. It doesn't shy away from some of the harder aspects of the narrative, but instead meets them head on, with Jesus as the shining Savior. Additionally, it's written perfectly for elementary aged children, providing them with exactly what they need to curl up and read about Jesus for themselves. We love these Bibles!

-Katie Lewis, Founder and Owner of Dear Mushka


In The Gentle King, Chris Ammen offers kids the opportunity to experience the Gospel of Matthew as if it’s retold to them by their favorite Bible teacher at church. (You know the one.) You can truly sense Chris’s affection for Jesus and his affection for kids in every chapter! I don’t know anywhere else you can find the full text taught to elementary readers, especially in the engaging, readable way that has become Kaleidoscope’s trademark.

-Caroline Saunders, Lifeway and Kaleidoscope author
