The best children's story Bible I've yet to see
on August 2, 1998
This book is wonderfully written in a manner as if a grandmother were telling these Bible stories to her children (that is actually how the book came to be written). It is not watered down Bible stories but they are portrayed as the exciting, dramatic events they were. Customs and doctrines (reformed) are explained right in the story line. Although it is not the complete Bible, it contains all the narrative and historical passages of the Bible. It is divided into chapters which may cover several Bible chapters (it may mix books of the Bible as it tries to tell the story of the nation of Israel chronilogically). The Child's Story Bible contains 110 chapters of old testament stories and 92 of new testament stories. It is a wonderful devotional guide for the family as it is easy for young children to understand yet not too simplistic for older children. Our family loves it and has learned a lot from it!!
