Overview

PREFACE


"The Children's Bible" provides, in simple English, a translation of
selections from both the Old and the New Testament. These selections
have been made as a result of more than twenty-five years of observation
and study. The text is that of the Bible itself, but in the language of
the child, so that it may easily be read to the younger children and by
those who are older. It is not in words of one syllable, for while the
child is reading the Bible he should gradually learn the meaning of new
words and idioms.

The Bible contains the foundations on which the religious life of the
child must be built. The immortal stories and songs of the Old and New
Testaments are his richest inheritance from the past. To give him this
heritage in language and form that he can understand and enjoy is the
duty and privilege of his parents and teachers.

It is hoped that "The Children's Bible" will meet the need and the
demand, which parents and educators alike have long felt and often
expressed, for a simple translation of selections from the Bible most
suited to the needs and the interests of the child. It is also believed
that after the child has learned to appreciate and love these stories
and songs, he will be eager and able to read the Bible as a whole with
genuine interest and understanding.

    Great for children

    In my opinion this is the bedt childrens bible you can get. I have read quite a few really good bibles but nothing compared to this one. I would highly recommend it.

    Good for a child's level

    It is simply written so that children can understand. The only thing I don't like about it is that you can't look up a specific scripture on it. You pretty much have to go page by page. I will use it only occasionally, but would like to find one with more options and one that can be used more efficiently. Would like to be able to enter a scripture and find. This is more in story form.

    Slightly Disappointed

    I was slightly disappointed because when I saw "Children's Bible" I was hoping to see pictures included since it was for children but there weren't pictures and it was somewhat hard to tell where paragraphs ended and others began.
