The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name by Sally Lloyd Jones
The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name

kp, May 1, 2008

Don't let the unusual title deter you -- this is one of the best children's Bibles I have ever seen. Sally Lloyd-Jones' storytelling is creative and compelling. Her words cut to the core of Christian belief and inspire deeper faith and practice. When I read these stories, I am inspired to consider the call to discipleship in a new way -- one that is grounded in God's deep love and that values compassion over correctness. The illustrations engage both children and adults, and the stories appeal to both conservative and progressive readers. My 4-year-old nephew sat through three stories, one after another, while his siblings played around us. I especially enjoyed the birds-eye view of the Apostles with their mouths agape at the Ascension.
