Sally Lloyd-Jones, the former publisher of the religious division of Reader's Digest Children's Books, is the author of a new book for children ages 4 to 8. It’s called The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name (Zonhardcover; 352 pp).

Here are a couple of blurbs from Tim and Kathy Keller:

"I would urge not just families with young children to get this book, but every Christian-from pew warmers, to ministry leaders, seminarians and even theologians! Sally Lloyd-Jones has captured the heart of what it means to find Christ in all the scriptures, and has made clear even to little children that all God's revelation has been about Jesus from the beginning-a truth not all that commonly recognized even among the very learned." – Tim Keller

"Sally Lloyd-Jones, a Redeemer member for many years, has done a wondrous thing. She has captured the plot line of redemption in a children's story Bible that sings the praise of Jesus and his saving grace on every page, in every story." – Kathy Keller

    Dear Justin–Thanks for mentioning this book. (For the record, I didn’t put Justin up to this–he just saw it out there, being the circumspect person he is.) But here’s maybe an unusual recommendation: I’d urge ministers to buy it and read it for themselves. It will improve their preaching.

    Hey, JT (and Tim). Thanks for the recommendation. I’ll definitely pick that one up.

    Another great children’s bible is “The Big Picture Story Bible” by David Helm and Gail Schoonmaker. It’s Biblical Theology for kids, aimed at showing how the entire Bible is about Christ.

    JT, I just went and purchased this book after reading your post. It sounds perfect for our new little girl on the way… Thanks!

    Thanks so much for the recommendation! I’ve been looking for a way to bring out the redemptive history in teaching the Bible to my 3 girls. I will be publicizing this work. And from the sample, I agree that pastors could use it as a great resource.

    If we all could just grasp the bigger point to the story of Scripture, we would see the Gospel everywhere and grow in our own love for the Hero of The Story!

    Blessings in Christ,

    Bob Hayton
