Months back our friends Ryan and Bethany introduced us to a fabulous book called "The Jesus Storybook Bible".
Over 40 bible stories are uniquely told and beautifully illustrated in this little book.
But all these stories are telling one big story. The Jesus Storybook Bible puts it best when it says,
"The Bible isn't a book of rules, or a book of heroes. The Bible is most of all a Story. It's an adventure story about a young Hero who comes from a far country to win back his lost treasure. It's a love story about a brave Prince who leaves his palace, his throne - everything - to rescue the one he loves. It's like the most wonderful of fairy tales that has comes true in real life!
You see the best thing about this Story is - it's true. There are lots of stories in the Bible, but all the stories are telling one Big Story. The Story of how God loves his children and comes to rescue them. It takes the whole Bible to tell this Story. And at the center of the Story, there is a baby and every Story in the Bible whispers his name."
Love this little book. :)
If your family doesn't have one, go get one! Or give it as an awesome gift this year. Currently the book is 50% off at Lifeway ($8.50) so how can you resist?! :)
