Yes! The story of Jesus is throughout all of the Bible. Each story points towards him. Great navigation system:)
Uncomparable. Truth told so simply that children understand & so profound it made me cry.
All were good -- especially anyone who was a Bible bad guy -- he made them funny and memorable.
An incredible book and even more incredible audio. HIghly highly recommended.
The sample sold me on this one. I mean the performance was just captivating, and I loved the perspective of this children's Bible- that everything points to his name even making that connection with the old testament stories. However, the Bible is just a tough one, I mean creating a version that will appeal to all the differing Christian religions that use it (I myself am from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Saints- aka Mormon) is almost impossible.
What I like about it is that it is a LONG book, meaning it has a lot of stories that other children's Bible's omit, and each story is developed with characters instead of just presenting a bland summary in one paragraph. It is written and read in an absolutly captivating way.
However, sure enough there are parts of this Bible that are inaccurate in my view and even a bit irreverent, so I did return it. I decided instead to just stick with the paper version. No my boy won't be listening to it as he falls asleep at night as I'd like, but if I"m reading the paper version I can edit as I go. I still think it's a great introduction to Bible stories for kids.
I do recommend this book for those who are less rigid in their Bible interpretations.

This is written as a children's book and it's wonderful as such. My 5 and 8 year old love it! After listening through the audio several times, I purchased the paper version so that we could read it together in the evenings. And to be honest, I feel I am getting as much out of it as my children! Sally Lloyd-Jones has beautifully crafted every word and clearly lays out how truly every book and every story in the entire Bible points us to the Saviour. God's plan from the beginning of time is brought out in such an easy-to-understand light that while my children are learning from it, my own faith has also been increased.
I whole-heartedly recommend both this audio version and the paper version. Every family ought to own them!
My four year old loves this and my two year old is pleased to listen along. Beautifully written, perfectly read... my husband and I are happy to listen too!
Some inaccuracies in the bible stories, which is unfortunate. Mainly as a result of embellishment beyond the biblical text. None of them are major issues, however, and we have taken those opportunities to have discussions with our girls about thinking carefully about what we hear and always going back to the actual Bible for truth.,
Lovely how every story is presented in a way that points to Christ!
A must-have! I and my 4-year-old thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly recommend it. Thank you for making available to us.
All of them.
Very pleased to have downloaded it!
