No Sugar-Coating Sep 10, 2005
This is an excellent Bible particulary for folks of the Reformed/Presbyterian Tradition. The stories are told using real images and language -- it's not sugar-coated nor is the theology compromised by using a slightly elementary vocabulary. The illustrations are vivid and hold attention -- all in all, it's an excellent family Bible!
Creative, Inclusive, Thoughtful and Playful Dec 9, 2001
This is the only bible I am willing to read to my daughters, ages 4 and 6. I am very hard to please ... open in my spirituality, and desiring of inclusive material that is creative yet true to the sacred stories of the Christian tradition. This bible keeps my girls' interest and sparks their natural questions. It invites an open-ended sense of wonder, and avoids cliches or pat language. And I enjoy it. There are many stories of women in the bible, and all the stories are thoughtful, inclusive and understandable.
