The Family Illustrated Bible
I love the look and feel of this hefty hardbound book. It’s solid, over 300 pages, and it is very beautifully illustrated. I couldn’t find a two-page spread that did not have a picture on it and the illustrations seem to go perfectly with the story on that page.
This would make an excellent read-aloud story book for your young children or grandchildren. It says it’s for the “whole family” but if you have readers, don’t you want them to get into the habit of reading the Word themselves?
I really do love this book, but I also have a little trouble with the name they chose. For one, I mentioned already that it is more suited to children (non-readers) rather than the whole family. Two, I have an issue with them calling it a “Bible”. This is a Bible storybook, not a Bible. That doesn’t negate its beauty or the quality of the stories but people need to accurately know what they are purchasing.
So, as a Bible storybook (not Bible), for young children I strongly recommend this book! For older readers, I recommend your own personal copy of a real translation of God’s Word to read for yourself—there is simply no substitute for that!
Unfortunately I can not vouch for the accuracy of every story. I simply did not have the time to read this entire book! I always recommend checking the accuracy yourself with books of this type against a real Bible translation (with the King James Version being my personal favorite.)
