Never before in our nearly 150 years of publishing have we produced a Bible for children as rich and feature filled as The Story Bible.
This treasure will be a great help to pastors, teachers, parents and
grandparents as they, like the faithful mother and grandmother of St.
Timothy, lead the little ones to understand the Sacred Scriptures.
Throughout this Bible, high quality realistic art from our Growing in
Christ series is used to fully engage the reader, rather than using
cartoon artwork that might suggest to children that the Bible stories
are pretend rather than real.
Our intent was to keep the focus on Christ by presenting stories with
Old Testament prophecies about Christ so we could present one story for
all of Scripture - God’s gift of the Savior. Instead of paraphrasing
each story, they were drawn directly from the Bible while adjusting them
for student readability.
Many stories from the latter part of the Old Testament have been
included so that children may begin to build an understanding of the
sequence of biblical history. There is also a user’s guide included to
explain how to use this Bible with children at different stages of
development and reading levels.
Other unique features included in this Bible are discussion
questions, learning activities, and prayers. These bring each story to
life, making a meaningful and lasting impression on children from ages 3
Whether for at-home use, in preschools, or as part of a
congregation-wide children’s ministry, this Bible will make a lasting
