The Jesus Storybook Bible" is my favorite of its kind. Usually the stories of the Bible are taught in a moralistic fashion. Not so here. Rather children will be taught the Christ-centered nature of Scripture. Sally Lloyd-Jones has given the church and families a wonderful gift."

The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name disproves the adage that you can't judge a book by its cover. Jago's award-winning cover art is a foretaste of the whimsically insightful and richly colored drawings that await you on every one of the book's 351 pages. The illustrations alone are worth the price of the book....Jago the illustrator, and Sally Lloyd-Jones the author, are a good pair. She brings the same creativity and sense of humor to her telling of the Bible's stories....But Lloyd-Jones's writing isn't cutesy. She has a grasp of the profound. How does one explain to a child the agony of Jesus in Gethsemane, and his prayer of surrender to his Father? Lloyd-Jones does it as well as any biblical commentator....Read the entire Christianity Today article here.
