Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Desiree | 2/20/2014

    " Perfect Story bible for the 4-8 crowd. The OT stories point to redemption from the very beginning. The whole Bible focuses on God's love for humanity and his desire to be with us. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian W | 2/8/2014

    " This book was given to my family by some dear friends. My family loves the book so much that we have in turn given the book as a gift to many of our friends and will continue to do so. This storybook Bible takes many familiar and well-loved Bible stories and portrays the true meaning behind the story. Namely, that each story in the Bible is God's plan to rescue His people through Jesus Christ. The prose is delightful for the adult and the young child and the illustrations are playful and beautiful. Recommend, recommend, recommend! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittany Dalomba | 2/2/2014

    " Really love this storybook. We use it for family worship. I love the illustrations as well. Sometimes the author takes a little creative liberty in descriptions-not saying they didn't happen that way but no proof they did either. None the less each story always reflects back to Jesus. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 1/26/2014

    " Wish I could give to every parent. I use it as a devotional for myself sometimes - rich! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan Westra Westra Westra | 1/26/2014

    " Hands down the BEST Children's Bible on the market today. Good for adults too, if I'm going to be honest. I gain so much insight personally as I read this to my daughter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chad Barnes | 1/22/2014

    " Tremendous. Absolutely tremendous. This is undoubtedly the single most valuable resource my wife and I utilize in teaching our son the Bible at home. In all fairness, my 3 year old is probably a year or two too young to benefit from it the way he will, but he still looks forward to reading the Bible every night. Our family is currently reading through the Old Testament stories in the JSB, and my wife and I have been genuinely blessed by Lloyd-Jones ability to demonstrate how the Old Testament Scriptures bear witness about Christ (Jn. 5:39). In short, I cannot recommend more highly the Jesus Storybook Bible. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenyata Ophelia | 1/21/2014

    " I really like this bible it's good bible to read to any child also i really like is the pictures my daughter and i really like this bible. I can't wait to read to her this morning. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 1/15/2014

    " Wish I'd had this when I was a kid. Incredible. Mimi (2 yrs) already loves it - sometimes calling it the "bo-bo book" (many of the drawings show people who have bo-bos. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chip Hayner | 12/24/2013

    " Fantastic Storybook Bible for kids... The beautiful pictures by Jago will keep kids interested, while the storytelling is theologically sound. I would highly recommend this to any family -- with kids young and old! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colette | 11/26/2013

    " Beautiful book! Reading to my grandson, the simple truths are told in a way that isn't juvenile. A quote from Jonah : "Even though you've run far from God, he can't stop loving you," Jonah told them. "Run to him! So he can forgive you." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsay | 11/13/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff | 7/23/2013

    " Of all the books for children regarding the Bible, this is the best. Every Bible story points to Jesus. It is not moralist like most are but gospel and Christ-centered. It helps the kids see Jesus throughout the OT and NT. If you can only get one children' Bible, get this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 7/2/2013
