“Besides marvelous stories to rival any edge-of the-seat movie, there are paraphrases of popular psalms and Old Testament words of wisdom and prophecy. The handsome pictures and the decorated borders employ a rich palette of colors and patterns, giving The Bible for Children a contemporary look.” --Booklist

A classic treasure that vividly captures the eternal theme of God’s unending love and the many people and occasions that fill the Old and New Testaments.

The Bible for Children contains more than 200 Bible stories, suitable for anyone of Christian faith and told by one of the foremost Bible storytellers. Everything is here, from greed, deception, and hate, to love, miracles, and redemption. Above all, the Bible is a love story: the moving tale of God's love for the world in all its wonder and brokenness.

The stories comprehensively cover key themes of the Bible; the stories are reliable and faithful to the meaning and spirit of the original Scripture. The imaginative style reflects the variety of the biblical text—riveting stories, reporting, poetry, history, letters.

Murray Watts combines his knowledge and love of the Bible with skillful storytelling to introduce readers to the drama and mystery of this great book. His evocative and engaging retellings unfold the sweep of Bible history in words and phrases everyone can understand and enjoy.

The Bible for Children is a visual delight, filled with inclusive illustrations that add meaning to the stories. The rich color, the exquisitely drawn faces and settings draw readers into the emotion and power of all that happens.

This book for 7-12 year-olds has the design and drama of a modern classic.

From the Publisher

"This superb retelling . . . smoothly weaves together a memorable, extensive narrative. . . . Filled with expressive action, the glowing, folk-art watercolors are arranged around the crisp, easily readable text. . . . Although there are many fine Bible-story collections, this is a worthy addition to the genre."  —School Library Journal

"Watts' retellings from the Old and New Testaments are vivid and evocative, introducing young readers to the mystery and wonder of this great book. . . . Marvelous stories to rival any edge-of-the-seat video."  —Booklist

"A real treat . . . built to withstand endless reading and re-reading. . . . [The] narrative is dramatic and poetic by turns. The illustrations, by Helen Cann, are beautiful and fresh."  —Church Times

School Library Journal
Gr 2-6-In a clear, conversational style that is without sentiment or distortion, this superb retelling of the principal events in the Old Testament, the Gospels, and Acts, as well as a few cogent excerpts from Paul's letters and Revelation, smoothly weaves together a memorable, extensive narrative of God's relationship with the Jews and Christians of biblical times. Filled with expressive action, the glowing, folk-art watercolors are arranged around the crisp, easily readable text and decorate the outer margins of the pages and endpapers. Although there are many fine Bible-story collections, this is a worthy addition to the genre because of its scope and style of writing.-Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
