For this weeks “On My Shelf Monday” I am going, not onto my shelf, but the bookshelf of my 2-year-old son Jack. He has a Bible we read to him every morning from, and we’ve found this Bible teaching us just as much as it’s teaching our son. It is the best children’s Bible I’ve ever read – and now will be the only children’s Bible I recommend.
Containing forty-six Bible stories from creation to Revelation with beautiful, rich, and vibrant artwork,The Jesus Storybook Bible invites children to join in the greatest of all adventures and discover for themselves that Jesus is at the center of God’s great story of salvation – and at the center of their story, too.

“I would urge not just families with young children to get this book, but every Christian–from pew warmers, to ministry leaders, seminarians and even theologians! Sally Lloyd-Jones has captured the heart of what it means to find Christ in all the scriptures, and has made clear even to little children that all God’s revelation has been about Jesus from the beginning–a truth not all that commonly recognized even among the very learned.”
– Rev. Tim Keller, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City
“Sally Lloyd-Jones, a Redeemer [PCA, New York] member for many years, has done a wondrous thing. She has captured the plot line of redemption in a children’s story Bible that sings the praise of Jesus and his saving grace on every page, in every story.”
