'The Big Picture Story Bible'
Unlike other children's Bibles that give a random assortment of Bible stories, this Bible tells the 'BIG' story that begins with creation and ends with God's promise to be king of the whole world. It's the best of biblical theology, presented in a clear and winsome way for kids. The story is told in such a way that kids will be able to make connections between key events - like the Passover and Christ's death - and really understand the significance of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection.
This book is not meant to be the only Bible your family owns. It picks very few of the stories and does not present many details. The goal is to give the big picture, so if you have another beloved children's Bible (like this one) you can keep reading it and allow 'The Big Picture Story Bible' to tie it all together.
It does, unfortunately, depict angels with wings, and I noticed that the story of David and Goliath did not incorporate what scholars now know about that event (i.e. that Goliath was likely over 6 feet tall, not 9, and that David's stone probably hit him in the shins, not the forehead). But these are very minor complaints in light of the huge contribution this book makes to a family's grasp of the message of Scripture.
Hurrah for a forward leap in children's literature!
