Reviews - What do customers think about The Pilgrim Book of Bible Stories?

Wonderful with a few errors  Oct 18, 2006
Overall, this is the best children's Bible I've found. I appreciate the use of the NRSV, the historical and cultural information given, the fact that no particular theological viewpoint was pushed by the text, and that the not-so-contemporary family values of biblical times (like men having multiple wives) were not left out. I also LOVE that it includes some of the prophets. I have never come across a children's Bible story book that included so much Wisdom literature and Prophetic writing before, and it is a great addition to this text. I also appreciate that it includes the NT letters, which are also often left out.

The main problem is a few rather glaring typographical issues, as well as the conflation of the two creation stories mentioned in another review.

So this is not perfect, but it is a wonderful Bible. I'd highly recommend it for liberal and mainline Christian families looking for a non-evangelical Bible for their children, as well as for non-Christian families seeking to have a Bible story book for their kids that doesn't push a religious agenda.
Even Ezekiel and Proverbs are included in this book!  Aug 23, 2006
The Pilgrim Book of Bible Stories is a book worth purchasing for a child in your life.

The text is based on the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV), and it is both inviting and understandable. The well-researched illustrations are by an Israeli artist, Diana Shimon. I was grateful to note that none of the illustrations are graphic.

Despite over 300 pages of text, the stories of the Bible have been dramatically shortened. What I found unusual is that this publisher attempts to give a taste of the whole Bible, rather than just the sections dealing with well-known characters and plots. Thus, there are stories focused on Ezekiel and Proverbs as well as individuals such as Abraham and Jesus. Even if you are very familiar with the Bible, this is a book that will capture your interest -- thanks to the excellent design and the unique choices of material.

I found a few minor problems in the text. One relates to the creation stories in Genesis, where the publishers fail to clearly distinguish between two very different versions. Another problem is a glaring typographical error in a heading misspelling Ishmael's name. Despite these small issues, I highly recommend this book. It is a good choice for a Bible story book, even if you have others, such as the classics by Pearl Buck or Jesse Lyman Hurlbut.

An invaluable and highly recommended resource  May 23, 2003
Compiled by Christian writer and storyteller Mark Waters, The Pilgrim Book Of Bible Stories is a collection of biblical tales based on the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible. Powerful color illustrations, depicting people ethnically appropriate for their times and settings, enhance classical these Bible tales, which are retold in straightforward, gender-inclusive language. Ideal for reading aloud to children, or encouraging children to read on their own, The Pilgrim Book Of Bible Stories is an invaluable and highly recommended resource for teaching young people about the Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament.
