the simple Word

A few years ago when I was looking for a Bible storybook for my granddaughter, I asked around to see what was out there.  A few different people suggested the The Jesus Storybook Bible written by Sally Lloyd-Jones, so I ordered it for her.
Since that time I've seen others recommend it and when another granddaughter was recently read for a Bible storybook, I ordered the same thing for her only this time I ordered one for my youngest, too.

Every night before bedtime we read a chapter a night as the storybook begins at the beginning of the Bible working its way through the Old Testament to the end of the New Testament.  As we've been reading it the illustrations have slowly grown on me and I've found that the sub-script under the title of the storybook to be completely accurate....Every story whispers his name.  

All of God's Word ties together and points to Jesus Christ as shown by the ending paragraph of each chapter.

Here's an example from the end of the chapter about Abraham and Isaac based on Genesis chapter 22:  "Many years later, another Son would climb another hill, carrying wood on his back.  Like Isaac, he would trust his Father and do what his Father asked.  He wouldn't struggle or run away.  Who was he?  God's Son, his only Son - the Son he loved.  The Lamb of God."

The Bible truly is God's love story to us as it shares Jesus Christ over and over again.  The Jesus Storybook Bible states it simply enough for a child to understand and a mom to get :::::Godbumps::::: every time she reads it!

I've heard so many great things about this book! I recently ordered one to give to my nephew for Christmas and it should be here this week. Of course, since I ordered it so early, I'm thinking I might just have to read it before I give it to him... :)

Yes, read through a chapter or two or more carefully and gently turning the pages so he doesn't know that his aunt read it first! I think you'll enjoy it! :-)

We heard about this AFTER my boys were too old (but thankfully we went through a grown-up study called 'Hidden in Ages Past.')
I WILL get that Bible storybook for my future grandchildren!
