G5 Stars Out Of 5The Complete Illustrated Childen's BibleJuly 24, 2015GQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I bought this to read to my 4 yr old granddaughter each night to intill in her the habit of a daily devotional. She loves it and looks forward to having it read to her each night. Beauthifully illustrated. She does not want to read just one a night. For a young child it is great. An older child will need more depth to the telling of the scriptures.

B. Bain1 Stars Out Of 5The Complete Illustrated Childen's Bible/ Harvest HouseJune 22, 2015B. BainQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0The pictures are absolutely fabulous! Seeing them online was what "sold" me. I was very disappointed with the content. It does systematically go through the Bible instead of presenting random hit or miss stories. The problem is that there is no depth or "meat" in the stories. Facts without significance are a waste of time.
The child learns that Adam and Eve sinned and got thrown out of the Garden of Eden. Nothing is mentioned about God clothing them with animal skin (FIRST death caused) or that now there was a wedge between them and God and in the future they must approach God with a BLOOD offering. (No remission of sin without the shedding of blood.)
This would make story 2 of Cain and Abel's offering understandable. It wasn't that Cain's produce was inferior, but rather that Cain chose to disobey God and do things his OWN way.....just like we sometimes do. Again, "without the shedding of blood there Is no remission of sin. That's why Cain got into trouble. Like
Frank Sinatra's song, he did it HIS WAY.
The entire book is a collection of stories with the points removed It is a large book and I understand space limitations but I would much rather buy a SET of books that tell the whole story. I love the idea of presenting the Bible stories in order to show the child how God works with man and also how the story of salvation runs throughout scripture, becoming clearer and clearer as time progresses.
No, I would not recommend it.....although the pictures are fabulous.
It is like buying a joke book with all the punch lines removed.
