Every Story Whispers His Name

I get asked often enough about Children’s Bibles that I wanted to share with you about a special Children’s Bible that my family and I have fallen in love with recently.

I’d like to introduce you to The Jesus Story Book Bible.   This is the most fantastical, amazing Bible for reading to children from the youngest of ages.   It is truly a breathtaking experience to read it to my own children, and I know you’ll love it to.   When you read it for yourself, you will know I’m not overstating this enough.   It is a wonderful tool for parents.   The words and the illustrations work perfectly on each and every page.   Your kids will love it!

A “Story Bible” is great for kids because it gets away from chapter and verse restrictions, and introduces your children to the great stories of scripture.   What makes The Jesus Storybook Bible so wonderful, is that it ties Jesus into each and every story.

The Jesus Storybook Bible tells the Story beneath all the stories in the Bible. From Noah to Moses to the great King David, every story points to a Child, every story whispers his name…

It s like an adventure story about a young Hero who came from a far country to win back his lost treasure. It s a love story about a brave Prince who leaves his palace, his throne, everything to rescue the one he loves. It s like the most wonderful of fairy tales that have come true in real life.

You see, the best thing about this story is—it s true.

It takes the whole Bible to tell this story. And at the center of the Story there is a baby. Every story in the Bible whispers his name. He is like the missing piece in a   puzzle—the piece that makes all the other pieces fit together and suddenly you can see a beautiful picture.

And this is no ordinary baby. This is the Child upon whom everything would depend. This is the baby that would one day—but wait, our story starts where all good stories start. Right at the very beginning…

Watch the videos for a more few examples of the readings.   This particular reading is fun, because it’s the Christmas story.   And with this book the Christmas Story is the answer!:

As a father who reads to his own children, I cannot more highly recommend this wonderful addition to your families library.   I know that my wife and I cried tears during the first few stories, and I know that you will too.

Jonathan Cliff is married to his wife Starr and they together live out their days with two sons and a daughter. Jonathan serves as one of the Pastors at Grace Community Church in Clarksville, Tennessee; where he works with leaders throughout the city to help develop Christian community that leads to deep and meaningful spiritual friendships. His journey has been an adventurous one, having served in the local church for 15 years in family ministry developing leaders, building environments for kids and students to belong, and encouraging parents to take big spiritual steps with their families.

    This is the BEST Children’s Bible!! I found it when Angie mentioned it on her blog Bring The Rain. (If you haven’t read this blog, go subscribe now. It’ll take lots of time to read the whole story, but WOW!)

    Anyway, I cried too when I read the first few stories and I cry or get chills when I read them still. I grew up in the church and this Bible is showing me God in a whole new way. My boys love hearing them and most nights I have to say “No, I can’t read one more story. You HAVE to go to sleep!” I feel really weird telling them that I wont’ read the Bible to them, but after I’ve already read 3 stories to them and it’s an hour after they should be asleep, I have to make them get some rest.

    My dream / prayer is that my church begins to give this bible out to all children in the church. And even better, I’d love to have a huge box in my car so I could just hand them out on the street. Yes, I’d love to be known as that crazy lady who gives away the Jesus Storybook Bible. It is THAT good!

    We’ve had this Bible for a couple years, and it’s our favorite (though The Big Picture Bible is a close second). And guess what??? They just published it in Japanese last month!!
