Publisher's Description

every story whispers his name…

It’s an adventure story about a young Hero who comes from a far country to win back his lost treasure. It’s a love story about a brave Prince who leaves his palace, his throne—everything—to rescue the one he loves. It’s like the most wonderful of fairy tales that has come true in real life! You see, the best thing about this Story is—it’s true. And at the center of the Story, there is a baby. The Child upon whom everything would depend.

 

All the stars and mountains and the oceans and galaxies and everything were nothing compared to how much God loved his children. He would move heaven and earth to be near them. Always. Whatever happened, whatever it cost him, he would always love them. And so it was that the wonderful love story began …

—from The Story of God’s Love for You (originally published as The Jesus Storybook Bible)

    This review was written for The Story of God's Love for You.


    What if every little person could grow up knowing that she is lovely because God loves her?

    What if everything in the sky and under the sky were suddenly revealed as mirrors, reflecting Gods huge I LOVE YOU.

    What if the Bible could be understood NOT as a book of rules or as a dusty collection of stories about perfect people, but instead as a love story that really happened, full of adventure and featuring a daring rescue?

    It appears that author, Sally Lloyd-Jones may have asked herself these questions before sitting down to write the text of The Story of Gods Love for You.

    With her eyes and mind lashed securely to the biblical record, Sally has woven the familiar Bible stories with elegant descriptions in which God hovers like a mother bird over His creation and in which the sun dances and gleams and bounds across the sky in a race with Mary Magdalene on Resurrection Day.

    With theological precision and straightforward parlance that explains and depicts without talking down, The Story of Gods Love for You demonstrates that every subplot in the Bible from the Garden of Eden to the New Jerusalem shines with laser clarity on two over-arching themes:

    1. The Terrible Lie: God doesnt really love you, and He doesnt want you to be happy.

    2.The Great Rescue: Gods secret rescue plan to get His children back is based in His Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love. When the rescue is accomplished, His children will believe in His love and delight in His world a perfect home once again.

    With text taken directly from her award-winning picture book (The Jesus Storybook Bible), Sally has created a chapter book that highlights the big-picture, narrative arc of redemption. For example, in her account of Noahs rescue from the flood, Sally describes the aching and yet majestic truth that the rainbow, Gods war bow, is aimed away from humanity with bulls-eye accuracy toward the heart of heaven. God would let His arrow fly and it would pierce His own Son.

    The arrangement is perfect for young readers or for reading aloud during family devotional time. It will assist the new believer who wants an overview that lays out the narrative arc of Scripture, and will inspire the seasoned saint who wants a refreshing reminder that Jesus is the Baby who would bring laughter to the whole world, the Prince who would break His own heart to heal humanity, the only Rule-keeper, and the Rescuer of His people.

    If youre planning a read-through-the-Bible project for 2016, sit down for a couple of hours with Sallys book or read it to a favorite little person! Let The Story of Gods Love for You tune your soul to the truth that every story in the Bible whispers the name of Jesus.

    Then . . . open the pages of Scripture and let your heart rejoice.

    It's a very book. It really catches attention and draws the reader in. It's a fun way of describing the Bible. I love t he way Ms. Lloyd-Jones writes. It seems simple, but at the same time it's really complex. There was some revision of scripture, I'd memorized some of the verses already and I didn't like the way it was rewritten. Other than that, it was a very good book. Recommended for kids and young adults. Must read.

    A Beautiful, Story-Based Summary of Scripture

    The Story of Gods Love for You, by Sally Lloyd-Jones, illustrated by Jago, is a beautiful, Christ-centered, story-based summary of Scripture.

    If you are familiar with the childrens Jesus Storybook Bible, then you will be familiar with this new version, as the text is exactly the same. In this version, the text reads as a chapter book. The ornate illustrations are absent from The Story of Gods Love for You, but the text remains the same.

    If you havent read the childrens version, then I highly recommend taking a look at this beautiful release of Lloyd-Jones telling of the story of scripture, from Genesis to Revelation, with every story pointing to Jesus. The text is simple enough for those who are not familiar with the Bible to become familiar with the overarching themeGods redemptive plan to bring about the rescue of his people through His Son, Jesus. Any who are familiar with the Bible will find the simplicity of the text to be a beautiful reminder of the truths of the gospel.

    The Story of Gods Love for You could be a useful tool in evangelism, as Christ is central and the cohesive theme of the Bible is easy to follow. The complete text of the Bible, particularly the Old Testament, could be written off as too long or too confusing by someone who is new to the Bible, but The Story of Gods Love for You is neither long nor confusing. To be clear, it is not a replacement for the reading and study of Scripture itself; rather, it is a helpful tool that highlights the gospel.

    Who doesnt like a great love story from time to time? What about the greatest love story ever written? In The Story of Gods Love For You you are getting just that! This book written by Sally-Lloyd Jones, tells the story of Gods love for us. She uses Bible stories to point out how much God love us and created us out of that love. The book is a sturdy hard cover that will outlast the many many times that you open the book and read it cover to cover.

    From the inside cover: Every Story whispers his name. Its and adventure story about a young hero who comes from a far country to win back his lost treasure. Its a love story about a brave Prince who leaves his palace, his throne-everything- to rescue the one he loves. Its like the most wonderful of fairy tales that has come true in real life! You see, the best thing about this story is-its true. And at the center of the story there is a baby. The child upon whom everything would depend

    My recommendations for this book? It would be that this book would make a great gift for just about anyone!

    Thank you to ZonderKids for giving me the opportunity to review this book!

    This review was written for The Story of God's Love for You.
    I have a secret confession to make. Any book with the name Sally Lloyd-Jones on it I want. I dont even have to open it up to know that I want it. Her name on the cover is enough to make me put it in my cart. Why is that you ask? Its because I can be assured that she is going to take the readers hand and draw them to Jesus.

    For years now we have been enjoying her beautiful story books with all the littles in our lives. She teams up with a talented artist and the two of them create a masterpiece that brings the wonderful words and concepts of Scripture to life. If youve not enjoyed one of her books with your kids you are missing out.

    In the back of my mind I have always thought it would be lovely to read an adult book written by her. She has such a gentle way with words that quietly brings the Gospel into your reading experience. Well, my wish has somewhat come true. With the release of The Story Of Gods Love For You I can now unashamedly bask in the beautiful words that bring me into the presence of God.

    The Story of Gods Love For You is the adult version of The Jesus Storybook Bible. The words are the same but it is packaged for an adult to read. There are forty-four short chapters that lead you through the beautiful love story of the Bible. This book is a must for all the worn out mommas out there!

    It would be perfect for those moments when you just need to regroup. Think about where you go to escape the madness. Is it the bathroom, the laundry room, or even the car in the garage? Wherever it is keep a copy of this book there and when you think you are about to lose your marbles go there and read a chapter. Youll be exposed to the flawed people that God chose to use to bring about His perfect plan. Every time I read a chapter it reminds me that none of us are perfect but God is and has a part designed just for you in the midst of the crazy day-to-day.

    Maybe you're an empty-nester like me. I recently took it with us on a business trip and read it aloud to my husband as we were driving. I simply could not put it down! Not only did it make the trip go faster but we were blessed with the beautiful redeeming love story that God wrote just for us.

    I highly recommend this book to everyone who wants to be covered in the story of Gods great love for us.

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
