Precious Moments Storybook Bible great family read

I recently received a free copy of “Precious Moments Storybook Bible” from Thomas Nelson Publishers through in exchange for this honest review and I have to say, I was impressed.

I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting a whole lot from this Bible. Most people know of Precious Moments, including myself. I, however, have an image of watering down principles to make them appeal to the masses. While I’m not going to claim that this is a deep, theological Bible study, it’s also not meant to be. This book is made for families. Children are supposed to be able to receive something out of this Bible while giving parents a bit of a fresh perspective on the Word. It succeeds in both respects.

I have a 7-month-old daughter, so she is not really able to understand the words, but she loves the pictures. I also noticed while reading this paraphrase for kids, that I gained a little deeper insight into the basic message of the chosen stories from the Bible. I would highly recommend this book to anyone with young children, especially girls.
