Top 10 Children’s Ministry Resources: #3 Jesus Storybook Bible

08 Aug

For years, I’ve wanted a Bible that could fill the gap between a board book like Baby Bible Stories about Jesus and a chapter and verse Bible like The Adventure Bible for Young Readers, NIrV.

With the Jesus Storybook Bible, Sally Lloyd-Jones has not only created a book to fill that gap… she’s written my favorite book ever.

Here’s the story of how God created Adam and Eve, as told by Sally:

I’m at a point now where I can’t read the creation story without thinking of it as a love story.  Thank you, Sally Lloyd-Jones.

When I have parents come up to me and ask for a Bible recommendation, I almost always put the JSBB in their hands.  I preface it with a statement that goes something like this: This retelling of scripture won’t teach your kids Bible verses to remember… instead, it will weave the story of Jesus into the nooks and crannies of the narrative of God’s Word.  This is the best story time Bible I’ve found.

It’s hard for me to not rank this #1 on my list… but the next two have radically changed the way I think about Children’s Ministry.

    Great job with this series! Beyond the great resources you’ve listed, I’ve also really liked how short and to the point you are with each post!

      Thanks, Jill.
      If they’re actually great, the resources should speak for themselves… right? 😉
