About this deal
Colorful photographs and illustrations of key people and places, together with geographical maps of locations in the Bible, provide fresh insight and aid understanding.
The DK Children's Bible has become my gift of choice for newborns, whether the parents are dedicated Christians or only those who want their kids to see the Bible as great literature. The stories are well written and the illustrations lovely, and there is a lot of background information. The rich liturgies of the Old and New Testaments are brought to life with vivid portraiture and detailed factual explanation. In this beautifully illustrated Bible, young children can learn about the most wonderful story of all for themselves, from the marvel of creation to the spreading of the good news. And I’m so happy with this bible because it gives me more inspirations, happiness and power to seek God and know the words of God.I love this so much because it's not crowded visually, and very succinct so as to keep a child's attention.
But even without that, this is a great overview of the Bible for little kids, much easier than the God's Plan in Scripture for young ones. This collection of influential and inspiring stories from the Old and New Testaments helps children learn and interpret the messages and meanings of the Bible. The book also introduces younger readers to sacred sites of religious significance, from the peak of Mount Sinai to the shores of the Sea of Galilee. Abraham, Moses, Joshua, David, John the Baptist, Jesus, and the Apostles are brought to life in a way even reluctant readers will enjoy. Rather than many dumbed-down, Disneyesque versions of children's Bibles that I have seen, and rather than the somewhat lame materials offered by our church, the Children's Illustrated Bible connects with kids.The one we had in the 80s had a red cover with The Picture Bible in embossed gold, and no artwork on the cover. I always feel that illustrated Bibles are the perfect way to get a child to begin his or her own spiritual journey.
This is the story of Jesus - his birth, his life, his death and his resurrection - and all the wonderful stories he told, the miracles he performed, and the good news that he brought for each and every one of us. A graduate in modern foreign languages, Janice Emmerson is the bestselling author of The Complete Illustrated Children’s Bible, The Jesus Bible for Kids, and The Illustrated Bible for Little Ones. From A-Z, this super-helpful dictionary is packed with hundreds of definitions and colourful pictures.An uplifting and wonderful collection, this title is the perfect first introduction to the Bible for young children. Perfect for sharing with your child or grandchild or for them to read and discover the Bible on their own. Whereas most bibles would have just shown the happy lovely Noah’s ark with all the lovely animals, mine just had the ark in the background with all the horror of God’s wrath in the foreground.
This Bible also gives the child the feel of the times, like showing plants, utencils, and statues that are mentioned in the story. With simple text and vivid graphic novel style, The Illustrated Bible for Children masterfully retells the exciting episodes of the Old and New Testaments. All the best-known parables and teachings are here, including "The Plagues of Egypt," "The Birth of Jesus," "Jacob's Ladder," "Noah's Ark," "Judas Plots to Betray Jesus," and "The Resurrection," among many others. Written in conjunction with educators, scholars, and religious advisors, Old and New Testament tales including the Birth of Jesus, Jacobs Ladder, Noahs Ark, and the Resurrection fill this little book thats perfect for sharing with loved ones.
