These four books are amazing titles for family devotions, Bible study around the breakfast table, or a little dive into theology for bedtime stories! We love them!

Bible Stories Every Child Should Know

There are many things that I appreciate about the stories that Taylor has written. They are, of course, clear and concise and worded in such a way that is understandable to children. Beyond that, the selection of stories is excellent. My favorite thing, however, is the number of times that Taylor makes a definitive statement as to how this fits into the narrative of the gospel. Many of the Old Testament stories end with a clear connection to Christ. I would highly recommend this story Bible to parents of young children. These are the stories that you want your children to learn with the gospel application that you want them to understand. These truly are the Bible stories that EVERY child should know!

Bible Stories Every Child Should Know

This great selection of stories includes some of ‘the usuals’ and some of the ‘not so usuals’ (Ezekiel and the dry bones…) which is really great for youngsters to see different stories. the illustrations are lovely too. I am going to be recommending this to every primary school headteacher I know as a book they need in their school.
