|The Child’s Story Bible|
I love reading The Child’s Story Bible by Catherine Vos to our children. It is captivating enough to interest our three-year-old, but rich and meaty enough for our 11-year-old. Points of doctrine are explained right in the text in the same conversational style that makes the entire book a pleasure to read. Originally published in 1934, it is a must-have classic for every family’s bookshelf.
I am frequently disappointed by children’s Bibles, which water down the text to try and appeal to young children and rely frequently on cartoonish pictures. This story Bible is refreshingly different from the norm. It does not have many pictures, and the text is simple and straightforward while true to the biblical narrative. We use this Bible primarily for our family devotions or for our oldest child’s personal quiet time.
