Not a Biblically accurate Bible story book!
on January 26, 2015
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!
