Back in March, I reviewed a wonderful book called The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones with illustrations by Jago. Here’s what I said about it at the time:
Yes, there are plenty of children’s bibles on the market, but this one stands out for its vivid and beautiful illustrations, as well as its lively storytelling. For instance, in the story where Jesus feeds 5,000 people with just a few fish and some loaves of bread, we read: “As Jesus’ friends started to hand out the food, do you know what? It was the strangest thing, no matter how much they broke off—there was always more. And more. And more. Enough for 5,000! Everyone ate as much as they wanted—seconds, thirds, even fourths—until they were full. And there were still leftovers.” Can you see children’s eyes opening in amazement? They’ll love hearing these stories from the Old and New Testaments told in such a fresh way.
Now I’m pleased to announce that The Jesus Storybook Bible will soon be available in a beautiful Deluxe Edition! Coming in October, The Jesus Storybook Bible Deluxe Edition includes the complete book on audio CD read by award-winning British actor, David Suchet, one of Great Britain’s most distinguished actors, best known for playing Agatha Christie’s super-sleuth, Hercule Poirot.
Wouldn’t this make a wonderful gift for the holidays? You can learn more about The Jesus Storybook Bible Deluxe Edition at www.jesusstorybookbible.com.

Then head over to the About the Book page to read never-before-posted interviews with the author, Sally Lloyd-Jones, the illustrator, Jago, and the award-winning British actor, David Suchet!

My kids and I have really enjoyed reading stories from The Jesus Storybook Bible. I’m excited that this book is now available on audio, too!
