Are you still searching for a meaningful Christmas gift for a little one in your life? Allow me to recommend a gift that could benefit an entire family–The Jesus Storybook Bible.
The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones contains a collection of over 40 Bible stories which have been masterfully retold in language that will dazzle the hearts of children. I’ve already purchased a copy for my little niece (ssshhh, don’t tell her!), and I’m confident this book is going to be a blessing both to her and her parents throughout the coming years.
I love the captivating way in which Sally Lloyd-Jones leads up to the story of Creation in her introduction:
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. Every Story in the Bible whispers his name. He is like the missing piece in a puzzle–the piece that makes all the other pieces fit together, and suddenly you can see a beautiful picture.
And this is no ordinary baby. This is the Child upon whom everything would depend. This is the Child who would one day–but wait. Our Story starts where all good stories start. Right at the very beginning…
Don’t you just want to keep reading?
The Jesus Storybook Bible is available to purchase on its own or in a deluxe edition which also includes the complete book on audio CDs. The following video contains the audio version of the story of Christ’s birth, accompanied by illustrations from the book. As you will quickly see, everything about this book is truly delightful…
