This actually was purchased for a friend because they saw it at our house and loved the layout, the stories and the questions. He is a teacher at a Christian school and felt that it would be a great addition to the morning devotions with the kids.
I grew up on this Bible and now my kids are. When they are in Sunday School there isn't much that the teachers tell them that they don't already know! Its very thorough and can be a bit dry for wee young ones, but we spiced it up with a Bible challenge that involves prizes for the most correct answers in a week :)
Also the only thing that was different with this new edition compared to the one that I have (older edition) was the cover!
I had told a friend at church about learning so much reading Bible Stories to my children when they were young! She wanted a Bible Story Book to read and learn, something simple! I ordered this book for her & liked it so well I had to order 2 more, one for each grandchild! This is one of the BEST Bible Story Books I have seen in years!
I OFTEN GIVE THIS BOOK TO NEW CHRISTIANS WHO ARE TRYING TO UNDERSTAND THE BIBLE BETTER, IT IS VERY CLOSE TO THE STORIES /WORD OF THE BIBLE BUT WITH BETTER UNDERSTANDING. GREAT BOOK FOR YOUNG AND OLD ALIKE.
