One feature that makes both of these Bibles so edifying, is that they seek to tell the individual stories within the context of the entire biblical narrative. So many times these stories are taken out and isolated from the rest of the Bible. Children are left with only partial understanding. They learn that they shouldn't listen to talking snakes, Noah loved animals and boating, and that Abraham had lots of kids. They learn the facts and not the why. The Mighty Acts of God and The Jesus Storybook Bible both do an excellent job of tying everything together. Through this technique the purposes and plans of God are more easily seen. The grand story of redemption becomes so much fuller and extraordinary. God's sovereignty can be seen in all of its glory.
So what are you waiting for? Begin reading one of these books with the kids tonight. You won't be disappointed.
