God’s love is unstoppable. And that’s a promise.

Noah’s ark. Joseph’s dreams. Jesus’s miracles. The Bible is rich with stories for our children to hear and enjoy, but when those stories uncover the thread of God’s promises, our children learn much more than individual Bible stories. They discover how God has demonstrated His love for us, from the first promise in the garden

The Promises of God Storybook Bible: The Story of God's Unstoppable Love by Jennifer Lyell

4 stars

This is a beautiful illustrated children's story Bible that breaks down Scripture from Genesis to Revelation and focuses on how the Bible as a whole focuses on the promises of God. It is a brilliant idea and the artwork is absolutely STUNNING. Each chapter focuses on a particular story and then is followed up with questions to interact with kids. I could definitely see this being implemented into a c

Sometimes it is hard for us to grasp the big picture of the Biblical narrative. The Promises of God Storybook Bible, by Jennifer Lyell and illustrated by Thanos Tsilis, is a beautiful Bible that tells the story of God’s unstoppable love.

The Promises of God

Author Jennifer Lyell wrote the stories to be read aloud. She sees the book being used at home with families or at church in Sunday School. Each chapter takes a part of the Biblical narrative and couples it with a specific promise from God.

The Promises of God Storybook Bible: The Story of God's Unstoppable Love is one of the most beautifully illustrated children's Bible I have ever seen. This book has over 50 Bible stories and is a beautiful book of text with illustration to keep your little one interested in the Bible story. The illustrations are colorful and eye catching. As an adult, I am very impressed with this Bible.

The Promises of God Storybook Bible is a perfect for young readers as a devotional because the length of each

To most of us in the realm of Christian literature, including some new bloggers and book reviewers such as myself, Jennifer Lyell is anonymous author. But, with her newly released storybook bible, THE PROMISES of GOD, from B&H Kids Books, her anonymity is sure to diminish.

In Lyell’s storytelling writing style and through dramatic, yet, somewhat dreamy art, from Thanos Tsilis, both author and illustrator adapt the Old and the New Testaments into one year’s worth of stories for kids and parents th

The Promises of God Storybook Bible is a high level overview of many of the accounts in the Bible aimed at children. I liked several aspects of it, for one, it doesn't shy away from teaching what many would consider 'deep' truths, that even adults struggle with. It seems to go by the premise that kids will take God's word in faith (as we all must do). Here are some excerpts to illustrate this, "…He is only one God, but He has three persons that are all completely that one God" and, "He has alway ...more

I was excited to receive a copy of The Promises of God (2019, B & H Kids) mainly to see how my five-year-old son would like it. Illustrated by Thanos Tsilis and authored by Jennifer Lyell, I find that this children’s Bible fills a gap between the ultra-watered down cartoonish children’s Bibles that can be condescending to children, and the popular graphic novels which can be too much to handle for young children. I personally appreciate that the author does not skirt around many issues that othe ...more

The Promises of God Storybook Bible is not just another children's Bible but one that proves God is always in control, can always be trusted, always loves His children, always provides, always cares, always...

It's very interesting to read children's versions of the Bible, especially after having read and taught the 'adult' version for so many years.  Because God's Word is alive and active, any retelling of the story should reiterate those truths that we know so well and allow 'new' truths to bec

The Promises of God Storybook Bible
The Story of God's Unstoppable Love
By Jennifer Lyell
Illustrated by Thanos Tsilis

This book has over 50 Bible stories (24 from the Old Testament and 28 from the New Testament). Each story is told through a lovely blend of text and illustration. Jennifer Lyell uses her years of experience as a Sunday School teacher in the text portion of the book almost using a conversational style to tell each story. And the illustrations that accompany each will catch young eyes

There are a ton of children's storybook Bibles to choose from. In fact we already own a ton of them. So why would we consider another one? Those are always my thoughts when I am offered a new children's storybook Bible. Will it just languish on the shelf or will it be one that stands out?

I'm happy to say that The Promises of God Storybook Bible is a standout among our collection. From the opening pages you can just tell that it is different. The illustrations have a lushness to them that makes y

The Promises of God Storybook Bible, written by Jennifer Lyell and illustrated by Thanos Tsilis, is the newest storybook-style children’s Bible to enter our home. My husband has read Bible stories to our daughters every night before bed for years, so we’ve gone through many of these. Without a doubt, I know he is going to LOVE the built-in bookmark. It’s a daily struggle for the bookmark to stay on the correct page.

Typically, young children's books are quite limited in the scope of the promises found in the Bible with which children are made familiar. The rainbow promise. The never leave you nor forsake you promise. The promise of a Saviour Redeemer. Just a few.

But in The Promises of God Storybook Bible the child has the opportunity to see how God has loved his people and his creation throughout time. How He has made promises and kept them throughout the ages in many ways to many people.

The Promises of God Storybook Bible is an excellent resource for teaching preschoolers the truths of God's word. Author Jennifer Lyell created this storybook Bible as a means for helping her Sunday school students learn the narrative of Scripture. In the introduction to the Bible, Lyell wrote, "I've learned that the thread of the promises of God is sticky for kids and easy for them to understand. It weaves together the stories from creation to the new heavens and earth, all while making the stor ...more

PLEASE READ THIS REVIEW ON MY BLOG: http://bookreadingtic.com/2020/02/18/... THANK YOU!

This book contains fifty-two Bible stories that range from the Creation Story, to Noah’s Ark to the New Heaven which is spoken of in the book of Revelation. Amazing illustrations by Thanos Tsilis fill every page while the end of each account have a few things to think about. These are a retelling of the narratives, not the Biblical text, but the core messages remain true.

The Promises of God Storybook Bible by Jennifer Lyell starts with a note to all of the grown-ups. In this introduction she shares her experience in teaching Sunday School for many years to all ages. She shares why she chose to write this book and how she hopes it touches the hearts of both the children being read to and those doing the reading. I immediately felt encouraged that this was a book full of blessings to all that learn about the promises of God. I also love that the stories in this bo ...more

The Promises of God Storybook Bible is probably my personal favorite children’s book that I’ve gotten my hands on and the one I’m most excited to share with you. Why? It’s dense with theological truths like the trinity but condensed to a level that a young mind would be able to comprehend. And it’s G-O-R-G-E-O-S in design.

Per what you would expect from a storybook Bible for children, The Promises of God Storybook Bible has the typical stories throughout from Adam and Eve to Moses, John the Bapti

What I like about this storybook Bible is the interactiveness. Each chapter ends with four questions which prod children to remember and think on what was just read. And the narratives themselves are peppered with questions that prompt a verbal response. The way these stories are told lead to genuine conversation between the children and whomever is reading.

The theme of this book is also a great one, teaching children that God always keeps his promises and showing stories from the Bible

This storybook Bible is written from the perspective of God's promises and how they tie the Bible together. Even from the beginning, God promised to send a Savior to the world. Like any storybook Bible, this one is from the author's perspective, but it looks like a good one. Each story gives a main point at the beginning and then follows the story with questions regarding the story and how it applies to their lives.

This is a great Bible to encourage children that God loves them and always keeps
