Beginner's Gospel Story Bible (Review)
This review is for the book "The Beginner's Gospel Story Bible" by Jared Kennedy. I had barely even taken this book out of the box it was mailed in when my 8-year old daughter grabbed it, curled up on the couch, and began reading it. By the next night, she had finished the whole thing.
Now, I will say that this Bible is probably meant for a younger child, I can see why she devoured it. The pictures and illustrations are colorful and fun. The text is in a font that is very easy to read, and there isn't "too much" on a page as far as wordiness goes. There are questions strewn in for the kids to think about when reading it alone or with parents, such as "What is your favorite thing God has made?" when reading about creation, or "Have you ever been afraid to speak up for someone else?" when reading about Queen Esther.
This is one of the best Bibles I have ever seen for young children. It focuses on the promises of God and how the promise of salvation is throughout the Bible, but it will most definitely keep their attention and be fun for adults to read as well! Well done, with this book.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book.
