The Jesus Storybook Bible!

Tuesday, March 9, 2010

I love books - especially Bibles, and this is one I heartily recommend to all you moms and aunts and grandmoms out there!  It is called the Jesus Storybook Bible.  I first heard about it on Christian radio, Moody's "Midday Connection."  I remember just weeping and also shouting when some of the excerpts were read aloud.  I bought a copy before my grandson was even born, and I love to read it aloud to him.  This picture of Zeke was taken when he was just 4 and a half months old!
If you start reading this Bible storybook to your small children and grandchildren, by the time they hit the teen years they will have a clear understanding of God's story of redemption. It is SO good - even for adults, you will love it!
For example this is what is written in Leah's story... Now when Leah knew that God loved her, in her heart, suddenly it didn't matter anymore whether her husband loved her best, or if she was the prettiest. Someone had chosen her, someone did love her---with a Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.

This is taken from the back cover: "The Jesus Storybook Bible tells the Story beneath all the stories in the Bible. It takes the whole Bible to tell this Story.  And at the center of the Story, there is a baby, the Child upon whom everything would depend

Beautifully written and illustrated, The Jesus Storybook Bible invites children to discover for themselves that Jesus is at the center of God's great story of salvation-and at the center of their story, too.

A must buy for every parent and grandparent!

Love and Happy Reading Aloud Times,

We love this book too! Angie Smith talked about on her blog and I bought it soon after. I love how each story connects to Jesus and the secret rescue plan!

I have no little ones but I will remember this for my friends and others who do.

I'm headed down your way this weekend...well, kinda. I'm speaking at a ladies event held in Perry and I'm staying in Warner Robins. So, I'm headed south anyway!!

Have a blessed day, Jan.

I loved the excerpt about Leah! What a great book! I buy the books for our church library, and I'm planning on getting a copy to put in the library - our nursery workers and Sunday School teachers will love it!
