More About the Author

Ruth is a mother of three, grandmother to nine wonderful children from 17 years to 3 years. She is the president and founder of Ruth Graham Ministries. Author of 9 books including best-selling book, In Every Pew Sits a Broken Heart and award winning, Step Into the Bible. Her latest book, Fear Not tomorrow God is Already There was published by Simon & Schuster. The middle child born to Evangelist Billy and Ruth Bell Graham, Ruth says that being their child is part of what she is but not who she is. She has had her own faith journey that has been messy. She has known heartache, depression, betrayal, rejection, stubborn willfulness, anxiety and fear. Through it all she has seen the faithfulness and grace of God. She says that she is qualified to speak to various groups because she is flawed - a sinner saved by grace. Her life verse is John 1:16, "Of His fullness have we all received, grace upon grace." (NAS)

As a result of her life experience she has commited her life to reaching those people who have been wounded by life, the choice of another or by their own decisions and feel marginalized. Many of these people believe they have out sinned God's love and grace for them and are in a place of shame, guilt and despair. She brings a message of hope, restoration and joy.

Even if your children have Bibles of their own, I encourage you to have Ruth Graham's Step Into the Bible on hand, too.

Designed specifically for family devotionals, but equally as good as a one-parent-with-one-child book, this beautiful volume was penned by Billy Graham's daughter. In the introduction, Ruth Graham explains how her parents used a 19th century book titled Steps for Little Feet Along Gospel Paths (by Charles Foster) for family devotions while she was growing up. But when Ruth was ready to use it with her own children, she felt it really needed updating. She suggested her mother as the perfect person to do this, but Ruth Bell Graham thought her daughter ought to do it. So the younger Ruth took up the task, and her revised version, called First Steps in the Bible was published in 1980. This edition, however, is updated even further, removing what the author herself called "weak stories."

Each two page spread in Step Into the Bible features glorious color photographs related to the devotional at hand. There are lots of animals and people to interest young children, and real-life biblical scenes (like Mt. Ararat and the Jordon River) to interest older kids. On one side of the page is a short devotional - most no longer than a few paragraphs. On the opposite side of the page are kid-friendly questions to ask your child about the reading, and a memory verse.

The devotionals themselves do use some contemporary anecdotes, but they are largely simple, straight-forward retellings of Bible stories and incidents. The author does not dumb things down for the children; for example, she includes a story about leprosy. But as she says in the periodic notes she includes just for parents, such things need not confuse or frighten children if told in the right light.

This is a nice book but the stories are very simple
and not always direct bible stories. Perhaps - more
appropriate for little children. My 7 and 10 year old
enjoy this but aren't challenged.

This is an excellent book for families with young children of varying ages.
The pictures, discussion questions, and memory verses all contribute to its
effectiveness. The stories are short and concise, good for young attention
spans, and well written. The selection of stories is also excellent, covering the most important Bible stories that everyone should know. I purchased several of these books, some to give away. All the recipients
have been as delighted as I am.
