“Many parents in our churches do not feel adequately equipped to share scripture with their children, because they are unfamiliar with the Bible themselves. Introductions to each section of this story Bible will be of great help to parents such as these. They give good, simple overviews, set the stories in historical as well as scriptural context, and suggest how the stories might speak to us today.” —Storypath
“This Bible has many strengths, from its diverse and colorful full-page illustrations to its inclusion of an equal number of stories about women and men in the Old Testament.” —Christian Century
