Many Bible storybooks offer stand-alone stories, which reduces biblical narrative to moral fables rather than showing how they are a part of a larger redemptive drama. Designed for children ages 4 to 8, The King Jesus StoryBible is the gospel told in a single story one designed to be read in one sitting. The thoughtful illustrations nurture a child s spiritual curiosity and draw them deeper into biblical truth. This unique book also includes a letter to parents introducing the concept of the gospel as a story and offering suggestions for how to use the book with their children.
