It is easy to forget Jesus in the midst of busy schedules and conflicting priorities, but the truth is that he is the only one who can change the lives of parents and children. As you share these Bible stories together, you and your family will meet Jesus and learn together a new, life-changing way of recognizing him as the hero of every story. Based on the ESV Bible, this unique, illustrated Bible storybook uses 156 stories to present God's plan of salvation in Christ from its opening narrative in Genesis to its finale in Revelation. The Gospel Story Bible is one of the many products available in the Gospel Story for Kids series.
This book is also filled with many heart-warming episodes, most notably the touching love story of Ruth, the joyous event of Hannah giving birth to a long-desired son, the curing of Naaman's leprosy, the birth of the baby Jesus, and the triumphant entry into the holy city on Palm Sunday. Many of the parables of Jesus are retold and explained in simple language and amplified with colorful artwork, such as the four soils the seeds fell on, the hidden treasure, and the wise and foolish builders. Additionally, focus is given to the Lord's Prayer, the Beatitudes, and the Sermon on the Mount.
With each two-page spread, there is a lesson title, a reference in which that story can be found in the Bible, then the lesson summary itself, and some colorful drawings that illustrate the action and events in the narrative. This is always followed by a "Let's Talk About It" listing of three specific questions that allow a youngster to give feedback on what he or she has just been taught.
This book does not conclude with the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. It goes on to tell of the ministry of the disciples, the evangelistic outreach of Paul, and even offers insights on understanding what the gifts of the Spirit are and how to embrace them for personal ministry. This is a well-written, sophisticated, theologically-sound book that would be good for children ages 5 - 10. It is best used with an adult who can respond to any difficult passages children may wrestle with emotionally or intellectually. Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
