The Jesus Storybook Bible
About "The Jesus Storybook Bible"
The Jesus Storybook Bible tells the Story beneath all the stories in the Bible. At the centre of the Story is a baby, the child upon whom everything will depend. Every story whispers his name. From Noah to Moses to the great King David - every story points to him. He is like the missing piece in a puzzle - the piece that makes all the other pieces fit together. From the Old Testament through the New Testament, as the Story unfolds, children will pick up the clues and piece together the puzzle. A Bible like no other, The Jesus Storybook Bible invites children to join in the greatest of all adventures, to discover for themselves that Jesus is at the centre of God's great story of salvation - and at the centre of their Story too.

This beautifully written and illustrated Bible is a fantastic Choice for any child. Each story, whether from Old Testament or New, points the way to Jesus as our Ultimate Rescuer, in a way children and adults can understand clearly. It makes the Word of God come alive for children to hear and apply to their lives.
This book is one of the only kids ones I know that follows the line of thinking of 'biblical theology' - tracing the continual unfolding of a particular theme as it appears. It's about Jesus, but follows his appearance in the old testament through types and foreshadowingprophetic literature. So good!
I love this Bible. It has given our kids a wonderful understanding about how the WHOLE Bible points to Jesus, and how the big story fits together. I have also given this Bible to adults who are new Christians to help them get a big picture perspective on the Biblical narrative. I also read it myself sometimes! Beautifully written and theologically profound.
This is a fantastic children's storybook Bible. It is creative in displaying pictures that go with the story, which continually ties each story back to Christ. Some of the stories are displayed from the side of the book which means you have to turn the side of the book to the top, a great idea to grab the little ones attention as well. I have this on our coffee table, our young grandchildren want a story from the "Jesus book' and they like to choose the story to read which is a blessing to any grandparent's heart.
What a fantastic Bible for children! I am a Preschool teacher and I read this Bible to my class nearly every day. Each story is the perfect length for 3-5 year olds and ends by tying the story back to Christ. It gives us a great starting point for a discussion
