Reviews - What do customers think about Childrens Bible In 365 Stories?
Mainly complete but kid friendly bible Mar 12, 2007
I looked over a number of bibles for my 4-yr old before choosing this one. This one reaches a good balance of being accurate without being overly graphic. For example, when the citizens of Sodom come to Lot's door, it says they "told Lot to throw out his visitors so that they could ill-treat them". Genesis 20 about Lot's daughters having relations with their own father is left out entirely. Aside from parts like that, which are inappropriate for children, it includes most every part of the bible, including references to the actual book and chapter. The gospels are understandably told as one continuous narrative. The letters of Paul are mainly left out (mostly not being narrative in nature). All in all, quite a complete bible with most graphic parts somewhat smoothed over.
Awesome book Jan 17, 2007
This is a great book to read to your children everynight before bed. It is well written for children to understand. My boys look forward to their nightly readings. They have learned a lot about the bible and are excited to learn more.
Excellent and Speedy Service Jan 17, 2007
I had ordered the book as a Christmas present, and received it in plenty of time. The book came in excellent condition.
Needs more images Jan 9, 2007
It's a great book to read of course and I like that it's organized well. There needs to be more images in the book, that's all.
Inspirational!! Nov 7, 2006
Inspirational in the best sense of the word, in that it inspires young minds to think and use their imagination when relating to the 'classic' stories of Scripture. Told and re-told with no particular faith agenda/perspective in mind, these stories allow children to form their own opinions. In addition to the written word, the art work also challenges young minds to think as well as imagine possibilities that they had perhaps not considered prior to this telling of the stories.
