“Christianity is Good News. . . . When we open up the Bible it is Good News from cover to cover. It’s the Good News that God loves us.” —Billy Graham
No one has brought the Good News to more people than the Reverend Billy Graham, and the people who admire him span all generations. This Bible storybook will be a timeless classic for parents and grandparents to give a new generation of children the Good News; to show them the way to the cross; and to help them begin a lifetime of following Christ.

This book is aimed at kids ages 4-11. so it is perfect for combined bible study programs, or for family reading. It's ahrd to believe this is Rev. Grahams FIRST storybook! You would have thought he would have published at least 3 or 4 by now! The 60 bible stories are taken from the NKJV Bible text, and are short and include lovely illustrations, as you can see, along with Rev. Graham's thoughts and a devotion that you and your child can take from the reading, and put into practice.

I love how Rev Graham doesn't talk down to kids in these devotions. You can hear him actually giving them a sermon lesson instead. By asking them to see the bible in a larger perspective, he is starting them on the way to understand how it will always be a resource for their lives. Through out the book he reiterates God's forgiveness and grace, and his final closing letter is one you will want to treasure. 

This is a lovely book, perfect for gift giving, with the holiday season upon us!
