The Greatest Stories of the Bible by Thomas Nelson Publishing is a remarkable book. It is a well crafted and organized compilation of 250 of the classic stories told in the Bible. The Bible stories are shared in the New King James Version and scripture references are provided for further study. Each story fills about one to three pages. Though it is not a full Bible it does contain the biblical text and provides an excellent resource for families.
The Greatest Stories of the Bible is an attractive book and is decorative enough in nature that it can be left out on the coffee table for regular use. It’s greatest value is its devotional appeal. The stories are compact enough to be read in families with young children and larger stories are spread over two or three readings. We will most likely use this as a guide for family devotions over the course of 2010. The only thing missing for families with really young children are the pictures.
This book makes an excellent resource for family devotional time. If you are looking to share the classic stories of the Bible with your family The Greatest Stories of the Bible is a great resource. The retail price is $29.99 (Hardcover), and is available at places like Amazon for $21.59.
