Bought about 12 of these and gave them as Christmas gifts for my nieces and nephews!
Tarchia E Ebanks
It is easy to read, the stories are easy to follow and makes it simple for the kids to understand, unlike reading the bible it is much more easier.
Amazon Customer
Great bible, was recommended to me by Coworkers, more in depth than other children's bibles.

I received this bible from my mother when I was 8 years old and I loved it. I passed it down to my son. He loved it. We're african american and we were not offended by the racial inaccuracies before we were learning the Word of God. God created all races and loves all races. The pictures are a reference to help children to visualize and get a better understanding of the bible. I am 36 years old now and still love it. This book helped broaden my son's and my biblical knowledge. I've purchased one for my godson, because of all the children's bibles available I still think that this one is the best. The print is an excellent size, so that you don't have to strain your eyes to read it. Best of all, the author doesn't change the wording much so that it reads closely like my KJV bible - not like a story made up from someone's vivid imagination.

Wow. This Bible made a huge impact on me as a little kid. I still remember the pictures and stories from my childhood. I just came across this book again yesterday at a second hand store. I had not seen it for many years (I am in my early thirties now).

I am from a non-Bible-believing, exceptionally broken home, and I wound up in various foster homes over a number of years. In addition, I am half white and half black living in northern Minnesota. ( I throw this in due to the previous racial commentary).

Because of my exposure to this children's Bible in kindergarten, I begged my mom, and later my various foster parents, to allow me to go to Sunday School. I became a Christian at age 12. By God's grace, I avoided drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, and premarital sex. Later, I went on to Bible college with scholarships.

Tears came to my eyes when I saw this book yesterday, and I just had to buy it. I was looking on amazon to purchase even more copies. I had no idea it was still in print. This particular Bible made all the difference in my life!

This is the only Children's Bible I have seen that uses a style of language worthy to be associated with Holy Scripture. Combine this with outstanding artwork that truly captures the imagination of children and you have an excellent medium to help children grow in their appreciation for God's Church. It will also help Children to become accustomed to the language of great literature at an early age. The reading level is suitable for ages 7 or 8+, but younger children will certainly enjoy having these stories read to them, although the themes in some of these stories are clearly oriented to children of greater maturity. Simply use your discretion when deciding which of the many stories to read to your young children.

I had this bible when I was a child and I LOVED it. I am elated to find that it is still in print and available for purchase! With that said, I am a Black American. I always found the artwork that accompanied the scriptures in this bible to be beautiful and I STILL do! Granted, by today's standards the illustrations are not cullturally diverse, but then neither are paintings from the Renaissance period. Does that mean that Michaelangelo's paintings are less beautiful because they don't depict diversity? Think about it.

The message of the scripture is what truly counts. God made us all and loves us all, no matter our ethnicity. No one living today can say that the illustrations are acurate in their telling of the scripture. If this bible has 1 slight, that would be it. Regardless, it's still God's word no matter how the characters are painted.

Format: Hardcover
This children's bible overviews the Holy Bible with dignity and respect so often absent in "cartoonized" children's bibles.
There are many quotes, but at the same time, it's written so that not only children, but also adults, will enjoy reading it. Anyone who is unfamiliar with the bible would do well to read this to familiarize themselves with bible stories.
It helps the reader to put stories in chronological order. For instance,the story of David begins with his anointing and ends with his death.
While one may view the drawings as 'old fashioned', I chose this book originally because of the pictures. They show the people as more 'real people' instead of the familiar cartoon and, otherwise, unreal characters.
My children and grandchildren have all enjoyed this bible. And friends and relatives have looked forward to my baby shower gift knowing that they would recieve this particular children's bible.

Format: Hardcover
A few people have blasted this book for being inaccurate and racist. Granted, it IS visually biased for Northern Europeans. It was first written in the 1960s when multi-culturalism didn't exist. That's why Jesus and other important characters are blonde when of course in reality they couldn't have been. Children of color will have a harder time appreciating this Bible, but the stories really are excellent if they give them a try. If you can explain to your child why the pictures aren't quite right, the rest of this Children's Bible is a wonderful way to introduce the entire Bible to younger readers.
My grandmother explained to me that God appears as we expect Him to appear, and that's why some drawings of Jesus show Him blonde and others show Him dark. That explanation was enough to satisfy me and I loved this Bible when I was a child.
This Bible is so complete that I was able to blow my Pastor's own children away when it came to knowing what was in the Bible. The text is easy to understand for most 7 y/o or older kids and almost every important Bible story is in here.
Don't throw out the baby with the bathwater. The stories in this book are good enough to that you should try to overlook its one major flaw.
