I'm a happy homeschool mama of 4 little kids ages 8 to 2 yrs.
I loved the reader. He sounds like an old british grandpa filled with love, not to mention he's funny and entertaining. The story of Tower of Babel is so cute! When they all start speaking different languages the narrator explains that you might turn to your fellow neighbor and say "Awh, what a lovely morning..." And, what they hear is: "Shut up your boring." (all said in a British grandpa voice, it's so cute!)
Every story is told from the angle of love. God loves his children, that's the message the whole way through.
The storyteller is absolutely fantastic. This is a great performance and the best told book I've listened to thus far.
The drama created by the reader makes every moment of the book great.
Jesus, of course.
I am a grandmother and am so Thankful God's word has been out in such a wonderful adventure form that will engage my small grandchildren to get the truth down in there hearts in a way that can identify with. May God bless each and every child that hears this redemptive story.
The book can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. It's a little short for an adult but really good teaching the overall story of the Bible while showing the centrality of Jesus to the revelation.
My kids and I love this Bible! It's probably best for 4 and up. My 3 and 4 year olds listen but a bit of the language is over their heads. We'll keep listening anyway, but it'll be a bit before they understand all the stories. The language is definitely more advanced than the Beginner's Bible.
"Putting Jesus in the context of the whole bible"
David Suchet reads the book with perfect annunciation. The story is very well written and I've actually given copies of this book to adults to help them understand the context of the whole bible. I have a copy of the book as well, and it made it doubly enjoyable to follow the story with the pictures too. Jesus said we should be 'as little children' and I think the book illustrates this particularly well.
"Everything was ready. The moment God had been waiting for was here at last! God was coming to help his people, just as he promised in the beginning.But how would he come? What would he be like? What would he do?Mountains would have bowed down. Seas would have roared. Trees would have clapped their hands. But the earth held its breath. As silent as snow falling, he came in. And when no one was looking, in the darkness, he came."
Not listened to any others
It made me laugh and cry - such a beautiful story - and the amazing thing is that it is true!!!
Just read or listen to it for yourself and be amazed....
Since I first bought this wonderful book, I've listened to it more times than I remember... and I'm a grown up not a child (the presumed audience group!)
It's a wonderful overview of what God communicates to us through the pages of the Bible.
And excellently read (unsurprisingly so 😊) by David Suchet.
