MARY BATCHELOR, best-selling author of The Lion Book of Children's Prayers and The Children's Bible in 365 Stories.From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-4 Walter Wangerin's The Bible: Its Story for Children (Rand McNally, 1981) and Catherine Marshall's Story Bible (Crossroad, 1982) are hard to top, but this new book of Bible stories has merit, too. The scope of coverage for the patriarchs, prophets and kings of the Old Testament and the life and teachings of Jesus is extensive, and there are good highlights of Paul's life and other events in Acts. Some material on the Epistles and Revelation and a tiny sample of Psalms and Proverbs are also included. All is drawn together into a consistent, well-constructed narrative and written in a lively, easily understood style which still retains the dignity of the original. However, a Christian bias is occasionally present in the imaginative amplification of some passages. Sentences of moderate length and a rich but reasonably familiar vocabulary should suit upper elementary readers. Younger children will enjoy hearing the short, vivid stories read aloud. The 365 sections indicate use as a daily Bible study or devotional. Although the text is in double columns, the print is large and clear, and illustrations of various sizes liven every page. The luminous artwork is realistic, expressive and well researched in detail. Scripture citations are provided for each section. Pat Pearl, First Presbyterian Church Lib . , Martinsville, Va.
