ISBN 9781848719422

Catherine Vos’ Child’s Story Bible combines qualities which are not generally found together: she appeals to the interest and imagination of children without sacrificing fidelity to the text of Scripture; she uses the stories to impress great doctrinal truths, uniting the element of enjoyment with instruction; and she takes the sombre warning passages of the word of God as well as those which call for admiration and trust in the Saviour around whom children once gathered upon earth.

Suitable to be read to children aged 3+, and read by children aged 7+ by themselves.

Also suitable for all adults who wish to refresh themselves of the overarching narrative of the biblical story.

This edition includes 26 colour illustrations by Neil McArdle and readers will be interested to know that there are no images of Christ in the book.

 

ENDORSEMENTS

‘Time and again over the years The Child’s Story Bible provided the timeline for our family worship. The flow of biblical history outlined by Catherine Vos with the biblical narrative gave our children an understanding of the history of God’s redemptive purposes. The stories of David and Goliath, Daniel and the lion’s den, Joshua and Caleb spying out the Promised Land, these and more, were no longer disconnected Sunday School lessons but part of the history of God’s people. Our sons and daughters began to know they were the latest in a long line of saints in whose lives the God of history was working out his saving purposes.’ — JOAN KINGSWOOD

‘We used The Child’s Story Bible as part of our family worship with our three adopted Ugandan boys while we lived in Africa. The Bible stories were very simple to understand especially since the boys were learning English at the time and we found them to be the most faithful to the biblical narratives. I only wish I had known of them when my older children were young!’ — KATHLEEN CURTO
