The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every story whispers his name is my favorite children’s Bible. The author, Sally Lloyd-Jones, presents the Bible from creation through Revelation, with Jesus at the center of every Story. The recently released Deluxe addition is narrated by actor, David Suchet. Although I didn’t recognize the narrator’s name (pronounced SOO-shay), I did recognize his picture and voice as the British actor who plays Agatha Christie’s Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot.
The beautifully rendered stories are written and illustrated for children ages 4-7. Do not take the age recommendation literally. The storybook is for all ages. Lloyd-Jones distills the major theme of the Bible with incredible simplicity–how God loved His children so much that He sent the True Hero to “pull off the Greatest Rescue the world has ever known.” Yes, it’s a book to read to children, but it’s also a book to read as a morning devotional, to your spouse before bedtime, or at family gatherings.
Lloyd-Jones says it beautifully: “May all of us to be whispering His name in all the stories of our lives!”
