Customer Reviews

I had the same book when I was 5 years old.
Sharmaine Bowers
Even though I am not a Christian, I deeply appreciated this book because it emphasized moral values and how important it is to be a good human being.
sshah
The book is written for children, but the lessons on morality are timeless and can be read and enjoyed by anyone.

As another reviewer said, this book is available thru Jehovah's Witnesses at no charge as part of a worldwide Bible-teaching work. If someone wants to help support that work by donation, that's fine, but this book and others are available for the asking, NOT FOR SALE.

If you want this book, contact Jehovah's Witnesses in your area. Don't pay someone thru Amazon for an item that's supposed to be distributed at no charge.

Format: Hardcover
I grew up using this book. The first few stories, you see a man bashing another man's head in, a drowning mother holding a baby, you see a child being choked to death, another person whose been robbed, bleeding to death. If you're fine with your child being exposed to violent adult images, this is the book for you. As a child raised with it, it traumatized me. I don't allow my children to even remotely watch violence like this on TV...showing to them in a book is pretty irresponsible as a parent. But hey, that's just me, from my own childhood experience with this book. It made me worry these violent pictures would happen to me if I didn't please God. I'd like to say that was just my experience, but there's thousands of people like me who reacted the same way. All of the positive comments are Jehovah's Witnesses praising their own publication, very few who say they are not one, are being honest. I suggest you google the images in this book before considering it for your children. You'll find my description to be accurate.

Format: Hardcover
This 1978 publication of the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society (Jehovah's Witnesses) is of the 7"x9" format they occasionally use. It is richly and attractively illustrated. With an initial printing of 2,000,000 copies, it was intended for wide distribution.

Here are some quotations from the book, that often illustrate distinctive doctrines of the WBTS:

"The first angel God made was very special. He was God's first Son, and he worked with his Father. He helped God to make all other things." (#1)
"The fathers of the giants were not really human people like us. They were angels that had come down to live as men on earth. So when the flood came, they did not die with the rest of the people. They stopped using the human bodies they had made, and went back to heaven as angels. So they became the angels of Satan. In the Bible they are called demons." (#10)
"Jesus also says that the good news about God's kingdom will be preached everywhere in the earth. Have we seen these things happening in our time? Yes! And so we can be sure that Jesus is now ruling in heaven. Soon he will put an end to all badness on earth." (#98)
"Shortly before Jesus dies, one of the criminals says to him: 'Remember me when you get into your kingdom.' And Jesus answers: 'I promise you that you will be with me in Paradise.'" (#101)
"Do you know what happened to Jesus' body? God caused it to disappear. God did not raise Jesus to life in the fleshly body in which he died. He gave Jesus a new spirit body, as the angels in heaven have..." (#102)

My youngest daughter had a little boy last year. One afternoon got a call from her asking me where she could find her my golden book of bible stories, wow I thought, I couldn't believe she still remembered the books name after all these years. She wanted to buy one like she had growing up that I used to read to her from. I looked but couldn't find it right away , then I found a few but they were so expensive, I didn't know why??? Then I found this book here at amazon it was used but in good condition, so I bought it. She was so happy with it, and that made me happy too! Stories are told so a child can understand them with no violence, and unaltered. A wonderful book at a great price!

I had this book when I was a little girl, I used to read a story every night before I go to bed and after much searching I finally have the chance to read d exact same stories to my little ones. There is not a single book out there with more stories and so beautifully written so that little kids can understand, and now bedtime is so much easier because they are eager to hear the rest of the stories.

These items are wonderful but there is a travesty in them being listed on a site such as this.
The travesty is someone is trying to make a profit for a publication that the Organization of Jehovah's Witnesses offers, to anyone who is interested in obtaining them, for free. If one chooses to offer a donation that is up to them but there is no fee asked...EVER.
