Outstanding Bible for kids! Jan 15, 2007
This is a fantastic children's Bible and a great way to introduce kids to familiar Bible stories. My son is 2 and 1/2 and he really pays attention to the stories and is able to answer most of the questions at the end of the story. My sister and sister-in-law also read this children's Bible with their young children and also love it!
Shameful whitebread version of a classic Aug 21, 2006
Please do not buy this updated version of this wonderful book!!! The pathetic artwork in this version is a classic example of the intellectual, spiritual and artistic poverty of today's evangelical church. As someone else wrote, "when the message is all that matters, aesthetics takes a backseat." When the message is all that matters, you lose the very heart of Christ's incarnation and you're left with just an updated version of Gnosticism. The artwork in the original is far better. It's powerful, memorable. I doubt the artwork in this version will stick with children. It's too bland, too 2-dimensional, too sterilized, too homogenized. The original version of this book had a profound impact on me as a child when my mother read it to me. I highly recommend it, but please, please track down the original version.
Remembering My Own Children's Lives Aug 11, 2006
Upon ordering my longed for book (used in teaching my own children), I can now teach my grandchild to read and learn about God at the same time. We have read three chapters and she loves our times together reading from God's Word. After so many years, everything is still revelent. Thanks for continueing to publish this book. Ga Ga Terryn
Portrays a very angry God - May 23, 2006
I bought this for my 4 year old. He loves Bible stories and we've been through several children's Bibles.
I have to say this one is rather dark. Nearly every story in the Old Testament portion tells of someone being killed or dying with the implication that they sinned against God and thus God struck them down. I find myself softening the words up a bit as my son frequently looks worried while we read this particular book.
I want my son to know God and see Him as a loving, caring God, not an angry, violent God. I know as an adult that God is a loving, sometimes angry God, but for teaching a 4 year old... I don't know.
I think this particular Bible would be better suited to an older child (8 or 9) and it really is not marketed for them. Clearly it is aimed at the preschool kid. I thought it too heavy and a bit odd for the target audience.
Very sorry to see this Apr 26, 2006
There's simply no comparison between this version and the original. The illustrations in the original "Bible in Pictures for Little Eyes" were profound, mysterious, some of them even dark and frightening--they gave us things to wonder about and left us with questions we could not answer; the present illustrations are trivial. Yet another example of the aesthetic bankruptcy of American evangelicalism: when only the "message" matters, the inculcation of "Biblical truth", the aesthetic dimension is lost.
