Bible Books!

I posted about Parenting with the Bible about six months ago.  Here's an updated list of Bible-centered book that have can help kids get into God's word.

  • Jesus Storybook Bible: Every story, even in the Old Testament, points to Jesus.
  • Read and Learn Bible: The stories are a faithful rendition of the actual Bible.  The pictures are pretty good.
  • Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions for Kids by Sarah Young: I've been surprised how much our six-year old is into this daily reading.  (Each day is just about the perfect length for a kid.)  And more than once when I ask him what it's about, he convicts me by saying something like "We shouldn't worry because God has everything under control."  Yeah... still working on that one.
  • The Action Bible: This is a comic-book style Bible that we have available at Camp of Champions for kids to read.  Comic-book Bibles normally raise eyebrows, but I have yet to find a story that wasn't faithful to the text of the actual Bible.
  • The Story: The Bible as One Continuing Story of God and his People.  We've been reading this one to our older boys.  It's a condensed version of the Bible that keeps a story-like flow going throughout the whole thing.  So far they have been really good at listening to it.
There's a start!  Please reply or comment with any additional "Bible for kids" resources you've used.
