Review

“I LOVE to give people The Jesus Storybook Bible because from the very first chapter it paints a powerful
picture of God’s epic love for each one of us. Sally Lloyd-Jones has a unique way of inviting the reader, young or old,
to dive in and discover for themselves the truth and hope of the greatest story ever told.” Amy Grant (Amy Grant)

“Sharing the Gospel with The Jesus Storybook Bible has been one of the greatest privileges of my life.” Ann Voskamp (Ann
Voskamp)

“I would urge not just families with young children to get this book, but every Christian–from pew warmers, to ministry
leaders, seminarians and even theologians! Sally Lloyd-Jones has captured the heart of what it means to find Christ in
all the scriptures, and has made clear even to little children that all God’s revelation has been about Jesus from the
beginning–a truth not all that commonly recognized even among the very learned.” – Dr. Timothy Keller, NYC (Dr. Timothy
Keller)

“The Jesus Storybook Bible is unlike any other storybook. True, that’s to be expected when you combine the mesmerizing
illustrations of Jago and the award-winning writing of Sally Lloyd-Jones, a Brit with an uncanny knack for
storytelling.” More to Life Magazine (More to Life Magazine)

“The Jesus Storybook Bible is as theological as it is charming… a very grown up children’s Bible” –Christianity Today
(Christianity Today)

The Jesus Storybook Bible is, in my opinion, one of the best resources available to help both children and adults see
the Jesus-centered story line of the Bible. Tullian Tchividjian , Senior Pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church (PCA,
Fort Lauderdale, FL.)

In the interests of full disclosure, let me reveal that I had the privilege of reading the manuscript of
this book several years ago as a theological consultant to Zondervan, the publisher. I did not know, however, of the
fulsome thanks to my husband Tim in the acknowledgments until I received my review copy a few days ago. Sally
Lloyd-Jones, a Redeemer member for many years, has done a wondrous thing. She has captured the plot line of redemption
in a children's story Bible that sings the praise of Jesus and his saving grace on every page, in every story. Most
children's books of Bible stories are little more than a Christianized version of Aesop's fables, or at best, a
Christian adventure cartoon. But Sally goes out of her way in the first pages of the book to reclaim the true story of
the Bible: not a book of rules, nor a book of heroes, but: “The Bible is most of all a Story…It's like the most
wonderful of fairy tales that has come true in real life! You see, the best thing about this Story is--it's true! There
are lots of stories in the Bible, but all the stories are telling one Big Story. The Story of how God loves his children
and comes to rescue them.” This is heady theology, often missed in adult preaching and teaching, but fully realized in
an age appropriate and attractive form that will delight children and often (at least for me) leave the grown up reader
in tears. More wondrously, she has avoided the moralism and legalism that so often characterizes Christian educational
materials for children. For five years I worked as an editor of children's curriculum, requiring me to review, edit, and
sometimes write Sunday school material for children. It is very hard to find (or even produce) material for children
that doesn't essentially contain the message “Be good, so that God, your heavenly Father, will love you, and your
earthly parents will be happy with you, too.” To discover The Jesus Storybook Bible is to have a unique resource for
communicating the gospel to children in all it's fullness. I hope that every family, and even people without young
children, would get a copy of this book just to remind them of what the Real Story of the Bible is all about. -- Kathy
Keller
