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 to 8.

Whether for at-home use, in preschools, or as part of a congregation-wide children’s ministry, this Bible will make a lasting impact.

We love this Bible story book. We needed a more comprehensive bible book than the other one we had for our three and five year old and this was perfect. Also, it has the same beautiful pictures that my children see in church and Sunday school from Concordia. The short prayers are a great follow up to each story which we read every night (1-3 stories each night, only two pages each). Larger font and fairly easy to read. No extra "fluff." Guide for parents in the front. The only issue I have with it is that a couple of the stories are harder to explain to children-such as the story of Solomon and the baby. Great value-perfect for gifts and connects easily with the Sunday school materials.

One of the best Bible storybooks I've seen

This hefty edition provides “130 Stories of God’s Love” to help children come to know, as stated in the opening pages, “The love of Jesus, our Savior. The Bible is all about Jesus and you. This Story Bible will show you how and why this is true.” On each slick page, beautifully detailed illustrations draw children into the text with the colorful, realistic art drawn large enough for someone to hold the book for everyone to see, point to the pictures illustrating the story being read, and utilize the sidebars to reinforce each lesson with vocabulary words, questions, and activities to Ask, Do, and Pray. The Story Bible from Concordia makes an excellent option for any reader, but especially families, small churches, and children’s Bible classes where teaching supplies and Bible teachers are likely to be limited. This lovely edition has it all! For more, see the review on the Bible Reviewer blog -
