As a Sunday School teacher/leader, I appreciate this book immensely. It is well grounded theologically. it is simple enough for younger elementary children, but engaging enough for older children. The author did an outstanding job of rendering the Biblical stories with children in mind, the illustrations are charming, and the audio readings are fantastic. Our church purchased the curriculum for each of our Sunday School teachers. The curriculum is simple and may easily be adapted and expanded for different settings. We intend to teach this curriculum throughout the year and repeat it. It is a great way to plant the Biblical stories into young hearts, with the focus always on Jesus.
As a grandmother, I have given this bible to my grandchildren, the most important children in my life.
"The Jesus Storybook Bible" is a childrens Bible, but I think we, teens, and adults for that matter can gather a lot from it.
The thing I really like about this Bible is that, as is said on the cover, every story whispers his name." From Adam and Eve to the tower of Babel to Jacobs wife Leah to Naamans leprosy the stories always point to the Story, the plan that God had from the beginning. Sometimes its easy to get lost in the Old Testament and not see the big picture. But if we look closer every story can whisper his name.
Great children's resource, super price and service

The Jesus Storybook Bible really points to Jesus Christ in nearly every Bible story. The writing is fresh and the stories biblical yet accessible to children who are younger readers. Christian Books price was the best and the book arrived in my mailbox in no time. Perfect Christmas gift.
I read this through before giving it to my grandson and decided it was the best Children's Bible story book I have ever seen: beautiful pictures, beautiful writing without diminishing the Truth and impact of a full Bible. I loved this so much that I bought a bi-lingual one for one of my Hispanic friends.
I highly recommend this. You won't be disappointed.
This book paraphrases a selection of Bible stories in ways that really connect with children and adults alike. It succeeds in putting the reader right into the story in a most inviting way. It provokes questions and inspires conversation and discussion between generations--key ingredients of lasting faith formation.
