With more than a million copies sold, this classic Scripture provides an ageless Bible story for every day of the year. It's a perfect addition to any Sunday school room or children's church program.

"An imaginative arrangement, preserving the on-going interest of a serial . . . The illustrations are excellent . . . and will hold the listener's eye if the book is being read aloud . . . This selection provides a built-in continuity which other collections lack."—Church Times

"Written in a lively, easily understood style which still retains the dignity of the original . . . The luminous artwork is realistic, expressive and well-researched in detail."—School Library Journal

"Many children's books retell Bible stories. This is one of the best for its factual, sensitive and imaginative approach. The stories are allowed to speak for themselves in a panorama of scripture from Genesis to Revelation, and each is beautifully and imaginatively illustrated. [Here is] storytelling par excellence, clear, uncomplicated, concise, superlative."—Churchman

"The selections are just the right length . . . After using this book for several months, I can enthusiastically recommend it for families with young children."—Christian Home and School

About the Author:

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.
