From Genesis’ brightness of the first day of creation to Revelation’s dazzling promise of a new heaven and a new earth, the Read and Share Bible supplies more than 200 intriguing Bible stories for family devotions. Brightly colored headings, emotive, humorous, engaging illustrations, and questions to jump-start discussions for the whole group make this Bible story compendium a welcome part of family time. Based on The Holy Bible, International Children’s Bible, these well-known, and not so well-known, narratives are short, straight to the point, interesting, and informative. To top it off, the author provides a page of tips for using this book in both family and Bible class settings.

On every page, award-winning children’s illustrator Steve Smallman’s colorful and action-filled graphics harmonize with the narrative. Gwen Ellis, the bestselling author of many well-loved children’s books, has a knack for simply and temptingly presenting Bible stories. If you are looking for a good book to put pizzazz into your devotions with your little ones, the Read and Share Bible will fit your needs. – Donna Eggett,
