The Lion Classic Bible by Andrea Skevington


The Lion Classic Bible by Andrea Skevington

Stunning in presentation and full in scope, The Lion Classic Bible is an evocative retelling of the Bible's great stories for children. In 12 flowing chapters, Andrea Skevington brings together all the Bible's treasured tales to reveal the overarching story of God and his people. Skilfully crafting her stories with care and consideration for the biblical original yet with the energy of the story front-of-mind, the result is a text with a compelling pace, which is at once fresh and original for new readers, but with an underlying depth and perspective that will delight those already familiar with the stories - whatever their age. Richly coloured full-page illustrations and motifs artwork add warmth and colour throughout. This version of The Lion Classic Bible is given a luxury binding to make an extra-special gift; a quality hardback with a real linen cover with foil effect, gilt edges, and ribbon marker make this a Bible to treasure.



. . . [with] a warm, light-filled quality. -- Publishers Weekly

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
