Scripture comes to life in color!
Dan(Lake Mary, FL, August 21, 2010)
This to me has taken center stage in our home since we have little ones that love listening to stories, especially those that come to life in front of their very own eyes. Thank you for a timeless treasure that will hopefully be with us now and many years to come. Bed time stories just got a serious shot in the arm in our home! Best Uses: Faith in bed time stories; Pros: All time favorite day one
Most inclusive Children's Bible!
Geri(Menominee, MI, October 19, 2010)
I use the Bible mostly for Children's Liturgy that takes place during the Mass. I really missed not being able to use it for a couple of stories from the Gospel of Luke because they were not in the Bible. I will also use the Bible for my First Grade Religious Education class. This is the most inclusive Children's Bible I ever purchased!Thank you. Best Uses: Children's Liturgy, Good Storytime Bible, Religious Education; Cons: Missing Luke Gospel story; Pros: Beautiful pictures, Easy for small kids, Great Children's Liturgy, Has most of the Gospels, Imprimatur, Long lasting cover

Bible for children and adults alike
Gretchen(Atlanta GA, May 23, 2012)
I bought this bible to read to my 5yr old. We started at Christmas 2011, and by Easter 2012 we were in the new testament. We'll be finished this summer. As a 48yr old adult, this will be my first time reading the whole bible, so I'm pretty impressed. It's takes the complexity out of God's word, and helps me to understand things I didn't grasp before. We both look forward to reading a few stories several nights per week. My husband listens closely too. The stories are not childish, but are easy to read and understand. I was able to share the story of Judith with my Methodist friend Judith, who didn't know the story. I got to explain a little bible history as well. I gave a copy to my 15-year old niece for her confirmation. It's just a thorough, easy reading bible for anyone. It's a great coffee table bible also, for intriguing a guest and possibly bringing them closer to God. I wouldn't underestimate this "children's" bible. It's wonderful for any age. The artwork is superb. By the way, my 5-year old can follow along easily, and recounts stories to me later. I wish I would have found it sooner in life.
Wonderful 1st Communion gift
