I LOVE Sarah Young's way of presenting God's promises to us in a personal way. I first discovered Ms. Young when I read 40 Days With Jesus: Celebrating His Presence, which prompted me to purchase the year long devotional (Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence). When she published Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions For Kids I bought it! I type up the devotionals and add a picture to them and include them in my daughter's lunch box every day. When I saw this title, I was excited to have one to share with my preschooler.

But this one is so much more than the others! It includes 49 Old Testament stories and 51 New Testament stories presented with beautiful illustrations (thank you Caroline Farias)and a great age appropriate narration. According to Young this book was "designed to help young children come to know God's Word and enjoy the Presence of Jesus in their lives. This book tells the wonderful story of God's great love for His people." I have to say that this has definitely been accomplished.

The Bible portions that have been included show God's love from creation, through Abraham, David, and finally the life of Jesus as well a reminder that "one day, things will become perfect the way God wants them to be. Someday God's love-brighter than the brightest sun-will be the only light we need...in the vision that Jesus showed to John, God and his children lived together as one perfect, happy family--the way it was supposed to be back in the Garden with Adam and Eve all those years ago.

A friend of ours gave my children this book for Christmas. I started reading it to my kids, but stopped after just a few devotionals. I believe that devotional bibles are fine - if they are Biblically accurate. However, I found myself having to go back to the scripture passages to give my kids the true story! Things like the story of Cain and Abel - Sarah Young writes that after Abel's death, all people came from Cain - the cursed brother. No mention of Seth, etc. And in the story of Jacob, Rachel and Leah - she writes that Leah had eleven children and Rachel had two. Back to the Bible... I understand that a Bible story book will sometimes simplify complex stories for young readers, but it should NOT give false information!

This is a wonderful book for parents or grandparents to read to little ones. It covers the major parts of the Bible from Genesis through Revelation. There several parts to each section, and places to stop and dialogue. I am very pleased with this book, which I bought for me to read with my grandchildren.

Format: Kindle Edition
I am so glad we found this Bible storybook! We have tried quite a few and usually become irritated for various reasons, such as an author introducing too much personal interpretation, focusing too much on any one aspect of scripture (such as every other story being about idolatry), or many of the stories being too long to hold a child's attention.

Compared to the rest of the bible story books we have found, this one is the best! It is not perfect as there is still a subtle hint of interpretation such as with the story of God Testing Abraham on pages 46-47, but overall, in my opinion, this storybook sticks very close to the original text. When I really try to place myself in the author's shoes, I don't think I could do a better job of making so many bible stories palatable for kids ranging from 2-12+.

The stories are the perfect length to hold both my 4 and 7 year old's attention, the illustrations are great (really great!), and the stories frequently lead to further discussion and exploration within our family. Not to mention I get something out of them too!

It is with all of this considered that I wholeheartedly rate this book 5 stars.

Absolutely the best Bible storybook out there. The pictures are captivating and it's one of the most comprehensive ones we have seen. It tells the stories in a way that is driven by Truth instead of fluffing over the not so good stories which I have seen in some children's Bibles:( Also the little devotion messages are so great. It even got my 3 year old super hyper strong-willed niece to sit down for a story. Were are reading this to our baby hoping they will have a strong relationship with Jesus instead of growing up in a environment where they feel mom and dad's religion is forced on them.

Wonderful book. It has a good amount of text that's fairly easy to read and beautiful pictures. Good intro to the bible before actually reading a full bible.

If I could rate this with no stars, I would! Parents and Pastors should be aware of this book because it's written and derived from a New Age author who claims to be Christian and it was written from her origins of New Age practices. I wanted a children's Bible book for my three year old nephew and so, I purchased this. We had only read a few stories and I thought the writing and stories were mediocre, some were not even that. I had wished that I purchased something better. The quality and illustrations were pleasing to the eye, but as of recently, it was brought to my attention from online forums that this book is based off her "Jesus Calling" series, a series I was not familiar with. On the first page of the author's forward note to parents and grandparents of this children's book, she states that her series came years after personal studies and journals from communicating with God and Jesus-from monologue to dialogue-and wrote down what she "believed He was saying" to her. I thought this was disturbing and then I realized this sounded like some sort of spiritual channeling or spirit guide sessions. I then did some further research online and found out the author goes into more detail about this in her forward for the adult book series, where she claims she received "messages" from God and Jesus. Her overall intention of this series were from "two anonymous women," who were the subjects in the 1992 New Age book, "God Calling." These two women wrote and communicated with someone like God or Jesus, but these channeled spirit guides were called the "Great Companion and Guide" and not God or Jesus.Read more ›
