THE PROMISES OF GOD STORYBOOK BIBLE (The Story of God's Unstoppable Love) Jennifer Lyell

ISBN: 9781535928328
B&HKids Publishing
My thoughts:  Typically, young children's books are quite limited in the scope of the promises found in the Bible with which children are made familiar. The rainbow promise. The never leave you nor forsake you promise. The promise of a Saviour Redeemer. Just a few.

But in The Promises of God Storybook Bible the child has the opportunity to see how God has loved his people and his creation throughout time. How He has made promises and kept them throughout the ages in many ways to many people.

I think the content, layout, and method of story telling suitable for ages 5 to 10.  The basic stories will be recognized by many children, but the application of how each is related to a promise of God may require some extra parental interaction.

The story telling tone is conversational and relaxed yet holds steady with the teachings of God's Word. The book takes the reader from the Genesis or beginning, through the fall of man, and on through the Old Testament and New Testament ending with our Returning Redeemer in the Revelation.

This is a storybook and it is not a Bible though it does take one through much of the Bible with each story section showing the general area of the Bible from which it is taken. There are a few discussion questions at the end of each story to enhance understanding.

I think this is a very good storybook of Bible stories and the emphasis on the Promises of God sets it apart from the usual Bible storybook.

About the book: God’s love is unstoppable. And that’s a promise.

Noah’s ark. Joseph’s dreams. Jesus’s miracles. The Bible is rich with stories for our children to hear and enjoy, but when those stories uncover the thread of God’s promises, our children learn much more than individual Bible stories. They discover how God has demonstrated His love for us, from the first promise in the garden to the promise of the new heavens and earth.

A conversational, whimsical, biblically faithful retelling of more than fifty key Bible stories, The Promises of God Storybook Bible lets your child hear favorite stories with new ears, repeatedly assuring them that each word is proof of God’s unstoppable love and unbreakable promises to His people.
