Booklist -This fully illustrated book presents nine narrative selections drawn from both the Old Testament and the New Testament. Each double-page spread appears to be self-contained, but actually the stories continue through several spreads with the same title, such as 'Abraham and His Children, ' 'Daniel and the Lions,

'The Life, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus.'

's design is handsome, and the illustrations, created with heavy black lines and thickly layered acrylic paints, are strong and often striking. Translated from the French and 'paraphrased for young readers, '

.- School Library Journal -As in Psalms for Young Children and Animals of the Bible for Young Children, this title has a simple layout with large-print text and a thumbnail picture opposite a full-page illustration. Memorable Old Testament heroes like Noah, Abraham, and Moses appear along with key figures from the Gospel writings. The stories are paraphrased using 'language and imagery appropriate for children.

-skinned figures are dressed in appropriate biblical garb. The composition of the artwork echoes the straightforward writing style and enhances the inspirational messages. This book provides a fine introduction to the scripture writings and complements the earlier titles in the series.-
