With sweeping brush strokes, God painted his creation across the emptiness. "Let there be light," he called into the darkness, and a sweep of brightness blazed across the blank canvas. The Story for Children: A Bible Storybook isn't just another collection of Bible stories -... Read More

- Review from Rambles of a SAHM by Fitzysmom on 8/27/2014
It is always a delight to come across a resource that is far above the other offerings in that same category. The Story For Children is in that class. The book is downright hefty simply because it is packed so full of God's messages to His people.
Max Lucado, Randy Frazee, and Karen Davis Hill, have put together a publication that will aid you in teaching your child about the major themes of the Bible. They have chosen forty-eight of the pivotal stories from Scripture. Each chapter unveils an important truth. It is told in the iconic Lucado style, with words that paint pictures and bring about understanding to even the youngest reader or listener. I particularly like how at the end of each segment is a portion called God's Message. It is designed to show the reader that the story that was just covered has everything to do with our modern day lives.
I must also comment on the artwork. The visions that Fausto Bianchi has put together are stunningly beautiful. They compliment the storyline so well by bringing the central truth being depicted to life.
If you are looking for a new book to read and teach your children about the timeless message of the Bible, you really shouldn't pass this one up. It would make a great addition to any home and can be enjoyed by the entire family.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
