Beautiful writing, colorful artwork, seems to imply that the law is done away
September 15, 2016
Despite that the writer seems to believe that there is no need for works (the law is done away), this book is beautifully written and illustrated. Many children's Bibles have some beliefs not quite in line with the Bible. This one is no different. God will love us despite our mistakes, but we should still be working toward perfection. The law still exists. I do love that it emphasizes God's never giving up love for us all.
Wonderfully illustrated, this book is filled with Jesus and the good news of His amazing plan to rescue us. I have shared this book many many times with all sort of people. My 80+ Jewish friend loved it. The Hispanic kids I read it to are enthralled.
This title was recommended to me so I purchased my first copy. When I received that copy I read it cover to cover and really enjoyed the text. No it is not a "word to word" translation but what it does contain is God's message of love for his children (for each of his children). It's a Bible for children, for people seeking what God means to His children and for those who read to others. They will find a loving Father, His Son and Spirit. I have given away my second order of 3 and will need to order again soon.
