The Holy Bible is God's love letter to mankind presenting the Savior, Jesus Christ and offering redemption. Christian parents should desire to share this special love letter with their children.

Crossways has printed a new copy of the ESV Christian Bible containing the Old and New Testaments specifically designed to aid in family devotionals. Make no mistake, this is NOT a story book. This is the Bible. And inserted within the pages of the Bible's text are pages and illustrations of 130 key stories of people and events that will aid in family devotionals. There is a distinction between the text of the Bible itself and the stories inserted which help teach the lesson of the Bible's text.
These illustrations are neither "cute" nor "cartoonish." No, these are lovely paintings showing what it must have been like at that particular time and place. This art renders respect to the story and helps one to appreciate God's Word for the truth it is.

I am happy to have an opportunity to provide my readers here on Chat With Vera an opportunity to have their own family copy of the Family Devotion Holy Bible (ESV).

ESV FAMILY DEVOTIONAL BIBLE is a hardbound colorful Bible.  It retells 130 key stories from the Bible with full color illustrations for each story, as well as placed within the Bible text where it is found. The stories are simplified and easy for children of all ages to understand. And each story has discussion questions and suggestions for additional reading which are designed to help families as they read the Bible together and apply its truth in all aspects of their lives.
