Product Description

Every story whispers his name.
A Bible like no other, The Jesus Storybook Bible invites children to join in the greatest of all adventures, to discover for themselves that Jesus is at the center of God's great story of salvation--and at the center of their own story too!
The Jesus Storybook Bible tells the story beneath all the stories in the Bible. At the center of all is a baby, the child upon whom everything will depend. From Noah, to Moses, to the great King David—every story points to him. He is the missing piece to the puzzle—the piece that makes all the other pieces fit together. From the Old Testament through the New Testament, as the story unfolds, children will pick up the clues and piece together the puzzle.
The Jesus Storybook Bible makes an excellent gift at Christmas, when we all remember that he is the puzzle piece that makes all the other pieces in our lives fit.

Review by Ben Patterson

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.

Editorial Reviews

“The Jesus Storybook Bible is unlike any other storybook. True, that’s to be expected when you combine the mesmerizing illustrations of Jago and the award-winning writing of Sally Lloyd-Jones, a Brit with an uncanny knack for storytelling. Not only is each story as vividly illustrated as it is portrayed, but also each tale is telling one Big Story---the Story of Jesus. Even the Old Testament stories of ‘The young hero and the horrible giant’ and ‘Daniel and the scary sleepover’ come full circle to Jesus, the greatest Hero, King, Lover and Rescuer the world has ever known.
''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....The title and subtitle are even better than the book's delightful illustrations and narrative -- because they provide, in one deft stroke, the interpretive key that unlocks the meaning of the whole Bible. 'The Jesus Storybook Bible' says it all: The Scriptures are not merely a collection of stories designed to teach moral lessons. As Jesus explained to the men walking the road to Emmaus on Resurrection Sunday, the whole Bible is about Jesus. In the words of the subtitle, every story whispers his name....Lloyd-Jones manages to show again and again the presence of Christ in all the Old Testament Scriptures, and the presence of the Old Testament Scriptures in the life of Christ.'
The Jesus Storybook Bible is, in my opinion, one of the best resources available to help both children and adults see the Jesus-centered story line of the Bible. Tullian Tchividjian , Senior Pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church

    I bought these for some great nephews and nieces. I teach kindergarten Sunday school and often pull The Jesus Storybook Bible out to illustrate a point. Invariably one of the children will say, "That's like my Bible! I love it!" and most of them beg for more stories. They really do love it! And the author does a wonderful job showing that the Bible points to Jesus. I don't agree with the way she does every story, but overall, it is excellent!

    This Bible is a great resource for Children's church, Sunday School, home. It is a book that tells the story of the Bible as it is one story, with all of them pointing forward to the coming of Jesus. As one reviewer noted, I do believe it is best among at least school-aged students.

    Best Children's Bible You'll Find

    This is by far the best children's Bible you can find. Lloyd-Jones' story telling combined with the illustrations bring life to the Scriptures for children. But the most unique and best feature of the JSB is it's focus on Jesus: "every story whispers his name."

Author/Artist Review

Author: Sally Lloyd-Jones
Located in: New York, New York
Submitted: June 19, 2007

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I am a British born children's book writer living in New York City. I came to the States from the UK in 1989--just for a year. I"m still here. I have worked for several years as the publisher of Christian Children's Books for Reader's Digest before leaving in 2000 to write full time. I have written three other best-selling children's Bibles: Baby's First Bible; A Child's First Bible; and The Lift-The-Flap Bible. I can be found at sallylloyd-jones.com

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I wrote this so children could know that God is for them and loves them with a Never Stopping, Never Giving up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  The Jesus Storybook Bible tells the Story beneath all the stories of the Bible. It takes the whole Bible to tell the Story. And at the center of the Story, there is a baby, the Child upon whom everything would depend. From Noah to Moses to King David, every story whispers his name. He is like the missing piece in a puzzle--the piece that makes all the other pieces fit together.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  As far as writers go: C S Lewis, Edward Lear, A A Milne, James Marshall, to name just a very few... and teachers: Dr Timothy Keller, pastor of my church in New York City; Fredreck Buechner; Helmut Thielecke; Brennan Manning

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Excerpted from The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name by Sally Lloyd-Jones, Jago. Copyright © 2007. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved. "It's like an adventure story about a young Hero who came from a far country to win back his lost treasure. It's a love story about a brave Prince who leaves his palace, his throne, everything to rescue the one he loves. It's like the most wonderful of fairy tales that have come true in real life. You see, the best thing about this story is--it's true. It takes the whole Bible to tell this story. And at the center of the Story there is a baby. Every story in the Bible whispers his name. He is like the missing piece in a puzzle--the piece that makes all the other pieces fit together and suddenly you can see a beautiful picture. And this is no ordinary baby. This is the Child upon whom everything would depend. This is the baby that would one day-- but wait, our story starts where all good stories start. Right at the very beginning..."
