The Promises of God Storybook Bible: The Story of God's Unstoppable Love
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 ...more
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...more
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.

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 ...more
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 ...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.
For instance, the b ...more

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 ...more
