The Story For Kids
Discover the Bible from Beginning to End
Foreword by Max Lucado & Randy Frazee, illustrations by Fausto Bianchi
Publisher:Hodder and Stoughton
With British text (not American) this is selections from the NIV Readers Version of the Bible accompanied by black and white drawings that help to hold the interest of the reader although with the way the book is compiled that is hardly necessary. Short passages from the Bible are linked together with text in italics that binds the whole together into one Story.
With discussion questions at the end of each chapter which can be used in a group or with an older Mentor, this could be a gift to a child or used as part of a youth outreach by a church.
However familiar you are with the Bible it is refreshing to read it in this simplified form. Once started I found it hard to put down so can highly recommend it.
