Friday Finds: My favorite.
I’m sharing one of my most favorite things today. (Watch out, Oprah.)
See… it’s in my bedside table and everything.
Reader, meet the Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones. I didn’t discover this book on my own, it’s been recommended by some of my dearest friends. My husband bought it for me as an early birthday present and we’ve been reading it aloud every night since January. That’s right, we’re old school like that.
It’s true, I have more than enough Bibles. Why do I recommend this one?
1. This is a Bible for all ages. The language is simple enough for young hearts and plenty profound for even the oldest hearts. The artwork is by Jago and is beautiful. This is one of my favorites from the entire book.
2. “Every story whispers His name.” Yes it does. Clear and concise, artful and poetic, the Jesus Storybook Bible points all of Scripture towards The Great Rescuer – Jesus. My friend Becca said this about the JSB: “The best thing about this book is that it takes every story and shows you how it points to Jesus or God sending Jesus. This book has helped me see how each story is a reminder of God’s never ending, relentless love for us in keeping His promise to send His Son.”
3. This book has made me tear up on multiple occasions. It has left me profoundly grateful for my Rescuer.
4. This Bible makes an amazing gift! We have ordered it for all of the new babies being born in our circle of friends. I intend to buy it for a high school graduation gift. Yep. It’s that good. My mom uses it for teaching at her school and Sunday School class. My sister won a large print edition last month. I just bought a Spanish version to take with us on our next trip to Mexico.
I love this little book.
