The Jesus Storybook Bible - I'm Giving Two Away!

There are many storybook Bibles available for children, but one which is unique is the Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones. In this storybook Bible, the focus is on the "Story beneath all the stories in the Bible. It takes the whole Bible to tell this Story. And at the center of the Story, there is a baby, the Child upon Whom everything would depend. From Noah to Moses to King David, every story whispers His name. Jesus is like the missing piece in a puzzle - the piece which makes all the other pieces fit together."

Zonderkidz is making this beautiful Storybook Bible available in two beautiful editions. First, The Jesus Storybook Bible Collector's Edition which combines the book of 44 Bible stories with a beautiful red silk ribbon, over three hours of narrated stories on DVD and three audio CDs. This collection is packaged in a lovely slipcase box. 

I found the DVDs and CDs very pleasant to watch and listen to. They are narrated by David Suchet and his voice is excellent for a project like this.

The second is The Jesus Storybook Bible in an Italian Duo-Tone cover with gold page edges; also packed in a slipcase box. This is a truly lovely copy of the Jesus Storybook Bible and would make a beautiful addition to grandma's house! What a wonderful Storybook Bible to pull out at bedtime and make a tradition of reading together from this Bible on sleep-overs!!

I found the focus on Jesus to be presented in a way which children - and adults - will grasp and understand! The illustrations by Jago are colorful and are sure to get children's attention!

These Jesus Storybook Bibles are a wonderful way to share the most important Story ever with your grandchildren; the Story which, as Zonderkidz says, "invites them to discover for themselves Jesus is at the center of God's great story of salvation - ad at the center of their story, too!"

I'm delighted to say, not only did Zonderkidz send me these to review, but they are making additional copies available for me to give away (USA only)! If you would like to be included in these give-aways - which will be on December 11, 2012 - please comment below to let me know if you have followed with Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG (not just liking the post) and/or have followed About the Children's Department by email.
