Light of the Whole World!

Have you heard of The Jesus Story Book Bible? It's a relatively new Children's Bible with beautiful writing by Sally Lloyd-Jones and amazing whimsical illustrations by Jago. Though, we don't have any children, I have given this book as a gift to many of my friends and I'm getting one for myself soon because it's just so lovely to look at and read.


I really appreciate the simple ways that the Bible stories are presented, while still retaining their fullness and truth. It really is a unique Children's Bible.
Here's what the pastor of Redeemer Church in New York and author, Tim Keller said about The Jesus Storybook Bible:

'I would urge not just families with young children to get this book, but every Christian--from pew warmers, to ministry leaders, seminarians and even theologians! Sally Lloyd-Jones has captured the heart of what it means to find Christ in all the scriptures, and has made clear even to little children that all God's revelation has been about Jesus from the beginning--a truth not all that commonly recognized even among the very learned.'
This would be a great gift for children in your family or anyone who loves beautiful books, like me!

A friend of mine posted this video on Facebook yesterday, and I had to share. It's the story of God sending the star to the shepherds, as told in the Jesus Story Book Bible.

Take a look and enjoy hearing a familiar story with fresh eyes and ears.


Hope you and your family are having a wonderful Advent Season.

  3. Nice! We have this one for our three children...and they L.O.V.E it. Especially the story of the Tower of Babel. I love the illustrations, but especially the fact that even in the Old Testament we are constantly pointed forward to Jesus!
