    Helpful for all ages!

    We checked this out at the library and decided we needed a copy to keep. The format is easy to read and interesting. The writers/editor does a great job at covering the plot, people, timeline and salvation issues with each book of the Bible while still keeping it interesting and fun. I plan on reding this WITH my kids! This book will be one that we will keep on hand and ready to reference after reading through it.
