Every Story Whispers His Name

For the past couple of weeks I’ve been reading through a wonderful book at home called The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name.  Until tomorrow you can buy it half price here.

I would highly recommend it for reading to your kids or grandkids.  I would describe it as a Christ-centered view of the entire Bible for children (and for adults who have never looked at it that way before).  It’s almost like an on the road to Emmaus conversation with pictures in a way that a 5 year old can understand.  Below is the chapter of Christ’s birth with pictures from the book.  If you buy the deluxe version you get the CD’s of David Puchet reading it.

It’s a wonderful book and one I anticipate using for many years to come.  Buy it, read it for yourself, read it to your kids, and enthral them with the wonder of God’s over-arching redemptive plan.

  1. One of the m’s read the creation/fall story and the ‘end’ of the story from this book to the adults at the conference. It really is appropriate for all! Way to go dad’s for nourishing your kids with the meat of the Word early. 🙂

  2. We received this Bible as a gift from the Okrafka’s for Jackson’s birth and have loved reading it to him. It’s just wonderful. Every narrative is set against the backdrop of the Great Narrative, the gospel, in a way that you can’t help but anticipate the arrival of a Savior as you read through the Old Testament. Jackson probably didn’t understand a whole lot during our first run through it, but it certainly blessed us. We’re looking forward to reading it through with him many more times. Makes a wonderful gift for any new parent!

    • Thanks Phil, I’m totally with you. Not sure how much Cole is getting out of his first read through either but we too are enjoying it very much (I loved the part about Isaac carrying wood and another who would come and carry wood on his back, never saw that before) and will continue reading it until Cole is able to understand more!
