Finding good Bible story books for children can be a difficult task. We have quite a few, but in some way they all seem to lack something. Some of them have dubious theology, others have peculiar images. Some skip over huge portions of Scripture in a single reading.
From what I have seen of Egermeier’s Bible Story Book so far it lacks in none of those areas. The theology is sound and the pictures are very good.
I want to write a fuller review when I have looked at it in more detail, but I just wanted to go ahead and recommend it to you. If you would like your own copy you can click the link below and order it direct from ChristBook.com.
|Egermeier’s Bible Story Book, softcover
By Elsie Egermeier, Clive Uptton / Warner Press
Egermeier’s Bible Story Book has sold nearly three million copies and continues to be America’s favorite Bible story book. It has 312 stories that cover the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Younger children will sit spellbound as you read these stories to them. Older children who read for themselves will return to Egermeier’s again and again as a trusted friend. Beauty and simplicity of style invites the meaning of the Bible into the child’s heart and mind to become an active part of his life, and to never to be forgotten.
Parents, teachers, and ministers find Egermeier’s Bible Story Book invaluable as an aid in the total development of children. It is free of doctrinal bias, and covers the entire Bible in chronological order, giving readers a better understanding of Bible history.
