    Great book...Everybody should get a copy just to learn the bible

    Great book...Everybody should get a copy just to learn the bible,
    I've found that it is fun just to ask one of the questions to see who knows the answer.
    It does turn into a game very quick..Learn the words and stories of our Heavenly Father
     and know who Christ Jesus was and why he was sent.

    Great book.

    THis book is a wonderful way to learn and review some of the great stories of the Bible. This is also a great resource to introduce you to the stories you may not remember but are still as relevent to Christian life. The research is great and the break down into different subjects is a great way for you to study or use as a guide to help others get into a small group or youth group study.
