Comprehensive and
4 stars By Ray, Jan 22 2013
This is a great all round children's Bible for a number of reasons. 

There has a been a genuine and, in my opinion, a successful attempt to actually use language appropriate for children. It suits children between 7 - 12. 

Unlike many children's Bible's which cover only a few select and popular stories, this Bible covers a huge range of stories. There are even summaries of Paul's letters. This makes it very useful as a church or Sunday School Bible.

The stories are written in an interesting way. While they are not always 'word for word' they are however, true to the intent of the text.

The art work is wonderful. It is detailed yet uncomplicated and importantly, it complements the text and often provides a picture that gets to the heart of the story. 

Finally, it is excellent value for money.
