Bible Review Project 4

Bible Review Project

  • Title: The Complete Illustrated Children’s Bible
  • Publisher: Harvest House Publishers
  • Full Text or Bible Stories 
  • ProtestantCatholic, Good for Either
  • Recommended Ages: Would be a good read aloud for preschoolers and older.  The vocabulary and story length would make this Bible a good first-reader choice.
  • Pros:
    • Very nice illustrations
    • Shorter “chapters” would be just right for daily reading.
    • Durable hardcover
    • Good job on the Last Supper story.  “This is my body.” “This is my blood.”
    • I haven’t tested it, but I’ll bet this Bible covers the stories to use in a Jesse Tree devotion

 

  • Title: The Catholic Bible for Children
  • Publisher: Ignatius/Magnificat
  • Full Text or Bible Stories 
  • Protestant, Catholic, Good for Either
  • Recommended Ages: Would be a good read aloud for preschoolers and older.  This one would also be a good first-reader choice.
  • Pros:
    • Nice illustrations
    • Very short chapters
    • Strong glossy pages and strong paperback cover
    • Scripture references are noted on the stories for those who want to look them up in a full-text Bible
    • Many stories have a direct quotation from Scripture noted on the bottom of the page.
  • Cons:
    • The binding prevents the book from laying open.  It definitely takes a hand on each side to keep it open.
    • The stories are really short.
