Several months ago, I posted a review and recommendation of The Jesus Storybook Bible. It was, and is, one of the best books I have ever come across for telling the story of Jesus to children. A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article entitled Don’t Miss Out On This Kidmin Resource all about the forums over at Ministry-to-Children.com.
Now like chocolate and peanut butter, two great things which taste great together, two of my favorite things have come to together. Ministry-to-Children.com is giving away a package of five copies of the The Jesus Storybook Bible. Simply head on over to their forums and leave a brief post explaining why you love Jesus. Hurry up though! A winner will be selected on March 17, 2010, so go register for the prize today.

Written by Sally Lloyd-Jones and illustrated by Jago, The Jesus Storybook Bible is quickly becoming a classic in world of Children’s Bible Stories, and for good reason. The book is written in the form of a storybook, and every story points to Jesus.

Next to the Bible itself (which is the only reason this book is not #1 on my list – hint, hint for the next post), I have found this book to be the single best resource for teaching my kids the story of the Bible. I also know of numerous Children’s Ministries that use this book in their weekly teachings. I am not exaggerating when I say that I think any Christian who has children should own this book and read it to them regularly!

Of all the story Bibles for younger children I have ever read (and I’ve been through a lot of them) I enjoy reading from this one the most. It is written in such a way that it draws you in and rather than just reading an account to your kids, it makes you the storyteller no matter how good you are at it!
With the launch of a new edition of the book which includes an audio reading by David Suchet, the Jesus Storybook Bible now has its own website at:Read More
