Item Description...
IN THIS MAGNIFICENTLY illustrated edition of the Bible, all the best-loved stories of both Old and New Testaments are retold for young readers by Selina Hastings. Her fluent, lively style reflects the character and poetry of the original, while vivid and finely detailed illustrations by Eric Thomas bring to life the people and places referred to in the stories.

To help explain the stories and set them in their historical and geographical context, background information is included, together with color photographs and maps of places mentioned in the Bible. These include places associated with the main events of the Bible, such as Mount Sinai, where Moses received the Ten Commandments, and the shores of the Sea of Galilee, the setting of many of Jesus' miracles. Photographs of people, plants, animals, and artifacts are also featured: the lilies of the field, the cedars of Lebanon, and the kinds of gifts the wise men might have brought to Jesus. The combination of color photographs and illustrations gives children an exciting and completely new visual approach to the Bible.

The Children's Illustrated Bible has been carefully prepared with a panel of religious consultants, historians, educators, and scholars. Its unique qualities - clear text, beautiful illustrations, stunning photographs - make this illustrated Bible a continual source of inspiration and pleasure for the whole family.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great for Quiet Times with your child  Mar 12, 2007
My 4 1/2 year old daughter loves this and asks me nearly everyday to read her a Bible story. Some of the stories she remembers from Sunday school, so it's a great way of reinforcing the Bible teaching your children get in your Church. Hightly recommended. I wish they had a larger version.
Wait Until First Grade for This One  Nov 27, 2006
It's hard to rate this book, because it does some things very well and other things not well at all. Our kids certainly like it more than the one we read when they were toddlers. But I recommend waiting until they are 6 or 7 until you start this one. Almost every story has some part that I don't want to explain to my 3 year old. As an example, do a Google search for the painting "The Deluge" by Gustave Dore. This painting is part of the page on the Great Flood. At what age do you want to explain to your kids about David and Bathsheba, Jacob Rachel and Leah, drawings of Herod's men killing babies, and the stoning of Stephen? When you are ready, this is a good book. Be ready.

The second criticism is about how the stories are told. I can't quite describe it, but it's like the language is more removed from the action. It's a modern translation, but very stiff and formal. I consider it more formal than the NIV Bible that I normally read. It it trying to prepare kids for the King James version?

On a positive note, my kids really do prefer this Bible to the one that we used before. Maybe it's because the drawings are more realistic. It uses many classic paintings that have stood the test of time. It also mixes in photographs of things that haven't changed in centuries, like using a donkey to carry heavy loads, or ancient roads.

I think of this more of an encyclopedia of Bible facts, rather than a children's Bible. There's something about it that just doesn't speak to me that way other Bibles do.
A Bible that kids will read!  Aug 19, 2006
I am a children's ministry coordinator at our church. I searched for a Bible that would capture the interest of elementary aged children. This one absolutely does. It is easy to understand, has compelling pictures and historical facts that help explain a time period that is difficult for young folks to wrap their minds around. Families are buying copies for home use as well. Be careful tho, it comes in two sizes and the larger one is much more kid-friendly than the pocket size. Makes a great read-together book for parents and kids.
Warning: This book is printed in two sizes  Oct 19, 2005
This larger edition of the Children's Illustrated Bible has large pictures plus print that is big enough to be very easily read. (The smaller book, ISBN number 0-7894-5331-2, is about 2/3 the size of this book.)

The pictures are realistic and not the silly cortoon-like figures you see in some children's bibles. I have read through a few of the stories, and they are short, precise and very well written. Interesting background information is given and illistrated in the margins.

The high quality of the writting, the background information and the pictures deserve a 5-star rating. However, the book is not perfect. For instance, Hasting has Jesus teaching the Lord's prayer as "Our Lord in heaven..."
Children's Illustrated Bible is just what I was looking for   Sep 7, 2005
I have been looking for a Bible for my 7 year old granddaughter, since she saw the one my grandmother bought me when I was 7. The Children's Illustrated is just what I was looking for. She knows she is getting it for her birthday and can't wait. I know she will love it.
