Item Description...
Outline ReviewThe brief "Introduction to the Bible" as well as "Who's Who" at the back of the book offer some helpful orientation to these 13 Old and New Testament classics--from Genesis and Noah to the Three Wise Men and the Last Supper. Each story is amply illustrated with watercolors by Julie Downing, and the artwork breaks up the text in unpredictable ways--in other words, you'll find the usual DK Publishing eye for good design. Mary Hoffman's tone is undogmatic (the Bible is simply "some of the best stories ever told") and she is particularly good at finding ways to handle stories, such as Abraham and Isaac, or the crucifixion, that might seem rough-going for children. (Ages 4 to 7) --Richard Farr

Product Description

More About Tyndale

Tyndale House Publishers Tyndale House is a publisher founded in 1962 by Kenneth N. Taylor, in order to publish his paraphrase of the Epistles, which he had composed while commuting to work at Moody Press in Chicago. The book appeared under the title Living Letters, and received a television endorsement from Billy Graham. This ensured the book's great success, and in 1971 Tyndale published Taylor's complete Living Bible. Taylor named the company after William Tyndale, whose English translation of the New Testament was first printed in 1526. The current president of Tyndale House is Mark D. Taylor.

During the first nine years of Tyndale's history, Kenneth N. Taylor continued paraphrasing the text of the Bible. Living Letters was followed by Living Prophecies (1965) and The Living New Testament (1967). Finally, The Living Bible was launched in 1971. According to Publishers Weekly, it was the bestselling book in the United States in the years 1972-74. The Living Bible was published in many different editions and binding styles, including a popular youth edition called The Way and a study edition called The Life Application Study Bible.

Today, Tyndale publishes a wide range of books by conservative Christian authors such as James Dobson, Charles Colson, Francine Rivers, Karen Kingsbury, and Joel C. Rosenberg. Its most successful publication in recent years has been the Left Behind series of novels by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, which is one of the best-selling book series in history with more than 60 million copies in print. Recently it has had a string of very successful sports-related titles by such coaches and athletes as Tony Dungy, Joe Gibbs, Drew Brees, Kurt Warner, Emmitt Smith, Jim Tressel, Gene Chizik, Shawn Johnson, and Deanna Favre.

In 2007, Quiet Strength by Tony Dungy reached No. 1 on the New York Times hardcover, non-fiction list. It spent more than 30 weeks on either the primary or extended list, and has sold well more than one million copies. It is one of the best-selling sports-related titles in history.

Subsequent books by Dungy, including Uncommon (2009), The Mentor Leader (2010), and The One Year Uncommon Life Daily Challenge (2011), have all reached the New York Times best sellers list.

Tyndale first non-fiction book to reach No. 1 on the New York Times hardcover, non-fiction list was Let's Roll, by Lisa Beamer. Beamer (born April 10, 1969 in Albany, New York) is the widow of Todd Beamer, a victim of the United Flight 93 crash as part of the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States.

In 1996 Tyndale House released a new English translation of the Bible under the title New Living Translation (NLT). While its predecessor, The Living Bible, was a paraphrase, the NLT is a translation that was created by a team of 90 Hebrew and Greek scholars. The NLT copyright belongs to Tyndale House Foundation. A major revision of the NLT, aimed at making the translation more precise, was finished in 2004, and editions published after this date are known as the NLT2, or the NLTse — "se" standing for Second Edition. A third revision in 2007 made minor alterations that had been suggested by the Translation Committee

Reviews - What do our customers think?
This is the worst Bible Story Book I've ever read.  Nov 6, 2004
I would not recommend this book to anybody.

I found the stories to be much too in depth for a small child with a vivid imagination - especially the story about "Abraham and His Family." The wording is not complicated, but I thought that the stories were a little over exaggerated in some areas and a little to explicit for a three year old.

The illustrations are beautiful, but do not compensate for the poor storytelling. I feel that there are much better products out there such as the Alice in Bibleland series.
Almost right...  Nov 7, 2002
This book of Bible stories aimed at the very young is nicely illustrated and fairly well-written. However, it is far too short to be a "Bible" of choice for educating toddlers or those beginning to read. The choice of some of the stories included is questionable, particularly since context is lost. The Gospel stories included are especially inadequate, failing to do justice to the ministry and life of Jesus. Kids could certainly grasp more if given the opportunity to do so.

Looking over similar products on the market, it is quite difficult to find one that satisfies all the necessaries: theological accuracy, wording, sense of style, beautiful illustrations, and completeness. This book could have been a contender, but its lacks in that final requirement only make it good, rather than great.

The beautiful stories of the Bible come to life in this book  Apr 30, 1999
My son was given this book on his 2nd birthday and has loved the stories and pictures. The Bible stories are vivid and the beautiful illustrations help keep his attention. I have used this book in my Sunday School class with children up to 6 years old. All of the children enjoyed it.
