“I LOVE to give people The Jesus Storybook Bible because from the very first chapter it paints a powerful picture of God’s epic love for each one of us. Sally Lloyd-Jones has a unique way of inviting the reader, young or old, to dive in and discover for themselves the truth and hope of the greatest story ever told.” Amy Grant (Amy Grant)
“Sharing the Gospel with The Jesus Storybook Bible has been one of the greatest privileges of my life.” Ann Voskamp (Ann Voskamp)
“I would urge not just families with young children to get this book, but every Christian–from pew warmers, to ministry leaders, seminarians and even theologians! Sally Lloyd-Jones has captured the heart of what it means to find Christ in all the scriptures, and has made clear even to little children that all God’s revelation has been about Jesus from the beginning–a truth not all that commonly recognized even among the very learned.” – Dr. Timothy Keller, NYC (Dr. Timothy Keller)
“The Jesus Storybook Bible is as theological as it is charming… a very grown up children’s Bible” –Christianity Today (Christianity Today)
“The Jesus Storybook Bible is unlike any other storybook. True, that’s to be expected when you combine the mesmerizing illustrations of Jago and the award-winning writing of Sally Lloyd-Jones, a Brit with an uncanny knack for storytelling.” More to Life Magazine (More to Life Magazine)

With the new The Jesus Storybook Bible (Keepsake Gift Edition), there are just a few changes. The cover is a beautiful blue cloth-like textured hardcover with gold foil accents. The book is also bigger and offers larger page sizes (about 1 inch both in height and in width). The illustrations and text are all just scaled up (which means it offers larger illustrations and a larger font size), which is great for reading to a family and/or group. This edition remains the same thickness/page count as the previous editions.
Our family started out with The Jesus Storybook Bible in the Deluxe Edition (with CDs) - and we have loved it! We keep the CDs in the car at all times and have loved reading the book together.
If you have not yet experienced The Jesus Storybook Bible - it is fabulous! It is a storybook Bible, so you need to keep in mind that this is written as a "story" and the author may take some liberties in descriptions of events, etc. What I love is that every story finishes with a tie back to Jesus. Even as an adult, I have learned from The Jesus Storybook Bible, and I love that my kids have it as part of their foundation.
I would love to see the larger book size of The Jesus Storybook Bible (Keepsake Gift Edition) paired with the audio CDs as a set - that would be the best combination, in my opinion.
FTC Declaration: The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy. This does not change the fact that I will give my honest opinion in my reviews.
What a beautiful gift edition! I would recommend this Bible to anyone who has young children. Those who want to get an overview of the whole gospel story and how the story of the Bible is really the story of Jesus will also love this Bible. The artwork is colorful and well done .A great way to introduce the Bible to children in a simplified and clear manner. The stories are short and probably take about 5 minutes to read.
*I was sent the Jesus Storybook Bible in exchange for my review and honest opinions. As always, opinions are my own.
~ What ~
Originally published in 2007, this three-hundred-and-fifty-two-page clothbound gift edition targets young children from four to eight years old. With its thick cover and placement ribbon, it contains forty-four popular stories retold from the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Bible. With no violent pictures except a few scenes such as a lion baring its teeth at Daniel and Jesus crucified on a cross, it would best be read out loud to non-readers or beginner readers who like to look at pictures due to their limited reading comprehension level.
With twenty-one stories from the Old Testament and twenty-three from the Old Testament, each chapter is eight to ten pages and includes colorful yet sophomoric drawings. From Creation to Revelation, the stories from the Bible are retold, showing how Jesus is the focal point.
~ Why ~
Teaching young ones about Jesus and the Bible is important, and it is best to start at a young age. I like how many stories are included. Printing some of the pages sideways or diagonally is unique and eye-catching.
~ Why Not ~
Some may feel the up to ten-page chapter stories are too long for a kindergartener. Others may prefer a different version of the Bible. I found the author took too much liberty adding and embellishing many of the stories to the point they were not true. Granted it is good to teach young ones Bible stories, but they should be as accurate as possible to the Word of God. Another concern I had was that there was no clearly stated plan of salvation (we all sin; Christ shed His blood on the cross for our sins, and He rose again).
~ Who ~
The author of several children’s inspirational, Christian, and picture books, Lloyd-Jones has lived in Africa and England and now resides in New York. Jago lives in England with his wife and two children.
~ Wish ~
As I mentioned, I wish the stories were more precise to Scripture and gave a simplistic plan of eternal salvation. I prefer that all pronouns of God are capitalized for reverence. It would be helpful to capitalize the chapter titles properly.
~ Want ~
If you are a new Christian who is unsure of what stories are in the Bible and want to read them to your child, this may be a good book for you, but please be careful as it is not entirely accurate to God’s Word. It is a nice presentation with erroneous content.
Thanks to Z Blog Squad for this complimentary book that I am freely reviewing.
