"All too often, children's Bible storybooks isolate individual biblical stories from the message of the Scriptures. Children then learn "Bible stories" much like they learn Aesops' fables—entertaining stories about what people should and shouldn't do. The Jesus Storybook Bible is a wonderful exception to this trend. Sally Lloyd-Jones tells the stories of the Bible in a way that seeks to be exegetically faithful to the text while directing children to what adults would call the redemptive-historical meaning; the whole Bible tells the history of God's purpose to redeem his people through the savior. Bible stories learned this way do what God intended them to do—they lead people to know and believe the gospel of Jesus. Perhaps the greatest value of this book is how it can train parents (and anyone in a position of teaching) to teach the Scriptures rightly to their children."
-Jim Weidenaar, Westminster Bookstore Staff, February 2007

“Although there are thousands of children books available for sale, few portray so excellently the Christian worldview.

This book does not feature the idealized, Sunday-School depictions typical of most “Christian” children’s books. The illustrations are made in a style that kids can relate to, having an almost childlike nature themselves. While simple at first glance, their unique appearance and clever humor will reward the careful viewer. Lots of material for discussion!

Of course, it is the writing that sets it apart, which is fitting, because the Bible, as God's Word, was given in a way that can be read, studied, and remembered. Just as God's message can be understood by the youngest of hearers, yet remain unexhausted by the wisest of minds, this little book will teach both children and their parents God's story of redemption.

What is truly special about this book is how each story points to Jesus Christ, the Savior. Better than any other children’s book I know of, this book shows the scope of God's plan as found throughout the whole of the Bible, instead of isolating stories from Redemptive-History.

For example, at the end of the Tower of Babel story, author Sally Lloyd-Jones foreshadows the coming if Christ as a Savior by describing how man can never reach up to heaven on his own: ". . . he didn't need a staircase, but a Rescuer . . . People could never reach up to Heaven, so Heaven would have to come down to them. And, one day, it would."

Even young children can begin to understand the beauty of God's redemptive-plan, and start to see how their own lives are part of His story.”
- Micah Bickford, WTS Bookstore Staff

"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

"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."
-Kathy Keller, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York
