jsbIt was a momentous night last night in our home, we finished The Jesus Storybook Bible for the first time before Madelyn went to bed. We started reading this every night about three months ago and have been pretty faithful with it. It takes only a few minutes to read and captures a story from scripture with great consistency in pointing the reader (or listener) that the rescuer is coming (OT) or He is here in the NT with Jesus. The pictures are great too, enough excitement to capture the attention of a three year old most nights.

Here is a good review by Tim Keller,

“I would urge not just families with young children to get this book, but every Christian–from pew warmers, to ministry leaders, seminarians and even theologians! Sally Lloyd-Jones has captured the heart of what it means to find Christ in all the scriptures, and has made clear even to little children that all God’s revelation has been about Jesus from the beginning–a truth not all that commonly recognized even among the very learned.”

I would highly recommend you purchase this book, especially if you have little ones in your house. If you are curious before purchasing, you can check out the new website for the Jesus Storybook Bible when you can listen to samples of the new audio narration and view PDF stories. The new deluxe version will be coming out in October.

Also, visit Timmy Brister’s blog for another review of this book – he finished it in their family last night too!
