Can a Bedtime Story Actually Change Your Life?
It is easy to forget Jesus in the midst of frantic schedules, family squabbles, and conflicting priorities. But the truth is that he is the hero of every story, including these ordinary ones. This is why Marty Machowski puts God’s plan of salvation in Christ on continuous display inThe Gospel Story Bible. The easy–to–read storybook introduces your family to many captivating people, places, and events from the Bible’s Old and New Testaments, showing how each one ultimately points to Jesus.
As you share these Bible stories together, you and your family will meet Jesus and learn a new, life–changing way of recognizing Christ as the hero of every story. Vibrant illustrations by A. E. Macha, child–friendly discussion questions, and Scripture references accompany each narrative to help you lead your family in exploring the Bible. You will be delighted to discover how easily even a young child can understand the original text of a story that he or she has already come to love. Ideal as a storybook for your preschooler, a devotional for your grade school student, a refresher for the adult believer, or an introduction for the new one,The Gospel Story Bibleis also a companion toLong Story Short: Ten–Minute Devotions to Draw Your Family to God and the forthcoming Gospel Story Sunday School curriculum.
I bought this for an eight year old girl who absolutely loved her child's Bible story book but was growing out of it. I feel this book fills a gap in the market that has been there since I was a child of 8 (I'm now nearly 65!), and was certainly there when I was looking for something for our children, 25 yrs or so ago. Not only does it point to Jesus but also gives some questions to talk about ... a huge improvement on the often comic-style Bible notes for that age group which, in those days, tended to focus more often on activities than the Bible story itself.
