Nice, but Lacking It is a good Bible for children who are learning to read, but not suitable for reading and teaching accurate bible history or lessons to young school age children. The stories are simplistic, and, as one reviewer suggested, kind of “leave you hanging”. The illustrations are also simple, and very “cartoonish”. Also, many good Bible stories are missing altogether. If you want an accurate, easy to understand, complete Bible Story book with beautiful, “true to the times” illustrations, I suggest the “Children’s Bible in 365 Stories” by Mary Batchelor. I bought that along with this one, and we liked that one much better.

Don’t Be Fooled For those who enjoyed the Beginner’s Bible by Karyn Henley, this is NOT it! I gave Karyn’s bible to my son seven years ago and was looking for a replacement for my daughter. I bought this bible by mistake because the illistrations and title were so similar and have been hugely disappointed. It lacks depth and purpose in the stories. This book might as well been written by an athiest who can spout out a story line but lacks any genuine understanding behind the story. If looking for a children’s bible I strongly recommend finding a Beginner’s Bible by Karen Henley (used or new) rather than settling for this or any other children’s edition that reduces these stories to a trite sequence of events.

Lacks any explanation of salvation I have read several children’s Bibles and poured through hundreds of reviews searching for a good one for my 2.5 year old son. This one is great for his comprehension/attention level (one of the main reasons our other Bibles weren’t working for us) and I had high hopes for content based on the good reviews. However, I was very disappointed to find almost no mention of sin or need for a savior. The Old Testament stories do not point at all to Jesus or a need for him. The promise made to Abraham’s family is just about getting land and many children. There is no mention about God’s intention to save the world through his offspring. The story of the garden of Eden does not mention that people will now have to die or have anything to be saved from, Adam and Eve are just banished from the garden as punishment for eating the fruit. The word Savior finally appears in the nativity story, but with no mention of what people need saving from. It might seem picky, but it breaks my heart that so…
