Publishers Description The Bible is God's Holy Word, the Book of timeless truth, inspired by God himself. In it, God reveals his character, unfolds his plan to save all people, tells us what he expects of us, and gives us glimpses into the future. It is the firm foundation to build our life upon. The B-I-B-L-E is a series that presents God's Word in a language and style accessible to children and early readers. This first volume contains a selection from the Old Testament (Psalms) and a selection from the New Testament (1 John). Psalms teaches us to come to God with every problem and every success. It teaches us to always praise God. It teaches us to live above the circumstances of life, knowing that God is faithful. Psalms repeatedly tells us of God's unfailing love for us. 1 John is a beautiful book about God's love for us and the love we should show to each other. It challenges us to faithfully follow the Truth, living in the light that God's Word offers. That is the secret to living in peace and harmony and closeness to one another.

Awesome Apr 17, 2008
We just received our book yesterday. It is awesome. I have never seen a Bible like this before. It was written with the intention of being able to be read by an early reader. I am so looking forward to seeing all of my children reading from this Bible. I hope the author is working on more volumes because I will buy every one!
Truth that children can understand! Apr 16, 2008
We are thoroughly enjoying the B-I-B-L-E. Our first grader can read it effortlessly. This is such a wonderful resource for all four of our young children...even our three year old can understand the simple vocabulary. We've enjoyed many Bible story books, but this is very unique to have every verse from the book of Psalms and I. John translated into words and phrases that our children can relate to their lives. We first read several Psalms that we have memorized as a family, and our seven year old said, "This is a LOT easier to understand!" Our five year old agreed. I am so grateful to be able to talk about the truths of God's word as a family without having to spend so much time translating it. We are planning on buying several more to give away as gifts and can't wait for the next editions. What a gift to this generation of children to be raised with a Bible they can understand!
God's truths for young minds Mar 13, 2008
I bought 2 copies of "The B-I-B-L-E" for 2 young girls in our lives. After looking through them myself, I am anticipating memorable moments "tucking them in" as my husband and I read Biblical truths to them in language they can understand. What a great tool to use in "planting God's Word" in their hearts.
