Our Sunday School class is following The Gospel Project curriculum from Lifeway. This Bible follows along exactly with that, including the Big Picture Questions and the Christ Connections for each week. Though I did notice that some of the Big Picture questions or answers are slightly different from the leader guide, for example on The 10 Commandments lesson.
This is a storybook, so it has summaries of each Biblical story, rather than the actual text of the Bible. It does have Old Testament and New Testament title pages. And it does tell you where to look for each story in your actual Bible. It does not have a list of the books of the Bible or divisions for each book. Instead it has 12 icons that match up with The Gospel Project curriculum. It does cover more Bible stories than other children's Bible that we have owned. I do like this.
I plan to buy The Big Picture Interactive Bible for Kids, Hardcover: Connecting Christ Throughout God's Story (The Gospel Project) for my 8 year old when it is available.
The illustrations are somewhat Disney-esque. They do include some nice details though and they match the ones that we use in Sunday School, so that is nice to have a connection between class time and home study.
The point of the "Big Picture" and The Gospel Project is to connect every story with Christ. So each story does have a Christ Connection. These need to be reworded or explained when you are talking to preschool and Kindergarten kids. I do wish they would have simplified some of them, to make it easier for younger children to understand.
To be honest, we don't really use the interactive part of the Bible with the phone app. We don't own a smart phone. My Kindle Fire does have a QR code reader and I can use that to access videos for some of the more well known stories, like Creation, Noah, Samson, David & Goliath. It takes you to a website that has a small youtube style video.
I do recommend this Bible Storybook to the parents of the children in my Sunday School class. I would also recommend it to families who aren't following The Gospel Project in Sunday School and just want an in-depth childrens picture Bible. My 2 year old loves flicking through the Bible to find the picture of baby Jesus.
I bought this hoping to use it in my classroom, since I teach younger students who can't read yet, and since most of them have never been exposed to the Bible before, they can't retell stories on their own. I was hoping that this would help me bring the stories alive to them.
I've read a few reviews since that say apparently you can make it "3D" with your phone in the hardcover version, but that doesn't seem to be true on the kindle version, and this NEEDS to be specified.
I really love the Christ Connection included in every story, and the focus/review questions, I will definitely use them when I am teaching. The pictures are okay, a little more cartoony than I would normally prefer, but not ridiculously so.
I most definitely like that I haven't seen a lot of "Extra stuff" being added in. I really dislike when children's Bibles "cutesy up" bible stories when it really isn't necessary, relevant, or Biblical.
As is, this seems like it would make a good devotional Bible for younger elementary students to use with their parents.
Reading these stories will familiarize your child with the stories and language of the Bible (almost entirely) without the editorializing present in other children's storybook Bibles (looking at you Jesus Storybook Bible).
