Like many parents, Ruthe and I read books to our children when they were small. Lots and lots of books. We did have the advantage of living in another country where…

We were learning to speak the language, so entertainment options were limited

We did not have a television, and would not have understood programming, had we had one.

We had no computer or internet.

We played lots of games together, play-acted, talked, wrestled, argued, and read to each other. For example, in one year, I read the entire Chronicles of Narnia to our children.

Today, I would read the Jesus Storybook Bible. The subtitle is intriguing: “Every Story Whispers His Name.”

Check out these wonderful lines from the book:

The Bible isn’t mainly about you and what you should be doing. It’s about God and what he has done.

No, 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… 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.

The center of the story is a baby who is like the missing piece to a puzzle that makes all the other pieces fit together.

The illustrations are really nice – easy to show to children, and attractive to look at.

I bought the Jesus Storybook Bible for my grandchildren, and I recommend it to adults.
