1) Accurate Bible accounts. (no extra-Biblical nonsense, like "Joseph loved his new coat so much, he even wore it when he slept!")
2) Key details of the Biblical accounts are NOT withheld or edited out. The accounts have the original meaning. (I've seen Adam and Eve stories where they just lived happily in the garden and slept under the stars, or David and Goliath stories where Goliath was smiling as he was hit with a stone.)
3) Culturally/historically relevant illustrations. Even though they are still "simple" illustrations they are the most true to the time period, culture that I've ever seen in a child's Bible for a young reader. There are some exceptions but the pictures are far from being absurd. (Another review mentioned the "bulgey-eyed" characters of another Bible. I'm familiar with it. Women are almost always depicted with pearl "Barbara Bush" earrings, Joseph sleeps on a mattress and boxspring with an orange tabby curled up at his feet, and Noah's wife carries Red Delicious apples in a basket to smiling, rather than ferocious animals. Another children's Bible we have depicts evil characters smiling sweetly while engaging in wicked activities, like trying to kill someone.)
4) Readable text in a simple-understand style for wide age span. This Bible was a gift to my 2-year old when, exasperated with our numerous but inferior children's Bibles, I commissioned my father-in-law with the nearly impossible task of finding a "good" children's Bible. Well, he came through! She loves having it read to her nightly. She loves paging through it independently and remembering the accounts.Read more ›
D2 (Most dynamically equivalent, a rather “free” translation with creative license)
D1 (More dynamically equivalent)
N (Neutral, somewhat dynamic and somewhat formal)
F1 (More formally equivalent)
F2 (Most formally equivalent, a rather “rigid” translation with little variance from the original text)
Then, I used the following criteria to judge the usefulness of the Bibles:
Scriptural Fidelity: Does the CB accurately convey the message of the original text of Scripture without adding extraneous details or subtracting essential details?
Theology: Does the CB feature orthodox and appropriate theological interpretation that highlight the main idea and purpose of the text? Does it look ahead to Jesus Christ who fulfills the whole Scripture (Matthew 5:17-20)?
Comprehensiveness: Does the CB include most of the stories from the original text of Scripture?
Storytelling: Is the narrative flow of the CB fluent, clear, engaging, and inspiring?
Illustration: Are the accompanying illustrations in the CB colorful, beautiful, imaginative, intelligible, and faithful to the cultural context and the original text of Scripture?
Interactiveness: Does the CB involve the reader in dialogue? Does it include questions, summaries, and other interactive features that facilitate understanding and encourage personal response?
Read and Learn Bible: Stories from the Old and New Testaments
Edited by Eva Moore and Illustrated by Duendes del Sur and Walter Carzon

The stories are told in the order they appear in the Bible and include citations to let you know what biblical story they retell. The stories are rather faithful to the Bible, without making judgments or interpreting the stories in ways that might be questionable. There are footnotes that help to explain some of the terms that might not be familiar to young readers (or even older readers who haven't done a lot of reading of their own Bibles). There is an illustration on every page, and these are neither overly realistic nor overly cartoonish; they are drawn well enough to show children the story, but not so realistic that they create a definitive picture of what characters or scenes would have looked like (i.e. they still leave some imagining to the child).
There is a parent section in the back that includes 20 different "lessons" that parents may use with their children. As the book, itself, states, "These Parent Pages are intended to help you, the best role models for your children, to be equipped and motivated to share your faith through reading the Bible and discussing its stories in a friendly and informal way." These lessons reference the biblical stories and then give some ideas about how you might discuss them and put action to the words (i.e. Parent Page 8, titled Facing the Fears of Life, references Luke 8 and Jesus being at sea with the apostles during a storm. It suggests you use this biblical story when talking to children about fears like thunder, bullying, rejection).Read more ›
