Overview

We must set aside the old ways of thinking, the ways that speak of myths as simple legends, and begin to consider the idea that the ancient world knew something we don’t: its own history. Perhaps mythology contains more truth than we realize!

The word “myth” has come to mean “fiction” in our minds, and so some people take Bible accounts, Aesop’s fables, and Greek myths and place them all in the same category. But what if some of the old legends are true? Rather than dismiss these narratives, perhaps we should investigate them. In this case, the world is filled with giant legends that speak of heroes and wars. In this highly engaging book of giants you will discover

  • Unique glimpses into the ancient accounts of giants from around the world
  • What does the Bible say about giants?
  • Full-color artistry developed in an interactive format with fold outs and flaps, booklets, and more!
  • A spectacular center spread stretching 4-feet across!

It is fascinating that the ancient world agreed on many aspects of the Bible, one of these being that early in the history of mankind, a race of violent, yet intelligent giants walked the earth, were destroyed by the Flood. Through historical records, the pre-Flood and post-Flood worlds are reconstructed, with giants re-emerging in and around Israel, and you’ll see one more reason that the Bible can be trusted.

This book is so cool! We were fortunate to grab it as a “scratch and dent” item, and I’m so glad we did! Great overview of myths and legends from around the world, plus great biblical stories, terms, and applications. The pull tabs, flaps, and great illustrations make it very fun.
A Great Add!!

The illustrations are AMAZING! My kid's at that age of starting to understand fiction verses nonfiction & this book gives me a wonderful opportunity to discuss how partial true information can be retold & changed into legend & myth. A great way to remind her to check back with the Bible! Pointing it all out with her favorite artist (Bill Looney), will be fun & help me teach the need for discernment.
So much information!

My kids 7&10 are fascinated by this book. So many lift the flaps to read and such great illustrations. I love that it not only talks about giants in the Bible, but also where all the myths and legends surrounding giants began. It is a book that my kids have come back to explore many times.
We loved it!

Amazing book!

We just got this book today! I ordered it on flash sale because we have the Dragon book from this series. It is beautifully illustrated. My 7 year old immediately opened it and started reading. The flaps and pull outs are tons of fun for the kids. It gives accounts of encounters with giants and legends about giants from all over the world. The author directs the reader back to scripture. For younger children, you may want to supervise, as there is a picture of David holding the head of Goliath under the flap of the middle fold out. While not super graphic, in regard to that illustration, it is something I wish I'd known prior to flipping through the book with my kids. This book is one I can see our family using over and over. We plan to do an indepth study of the flood, and this will actually fit right in.
