5.0 out of 5 stars Bible stories rewritten for children June 30 2013
By J. Chambers - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The stories in Child's Story of the Bible were written by Mary A. Lathbury, a children's book author and hymn writer who died at the age of 52 in 1913. The introduction to the book was written by a contemporary of Ms. Lathbury, John H. Vincent, an American Methodist Episcopal Bishop (the Methodist Episcopal Church is now known as the United Methodist Church).

The stories follow approximately the chronology of the Bible, but the New Testament stories end with the Ascension of Jesus. The stories are by no means an attempt to summarize each book of the Bible, but instead they're a compilation of the better known Bible stories written in a language that children can understand. The stories were written more than a century ago, and the writing in most cases does not sound as stilted or awkward as you might expect. In fact, much of the writing sounds remarkably modern-day.

The Bible is a treasure trove of great literary stories, and the author did an impressive job of rewriting many of these stories for children.

Note 1: The original 1898 edition of the book included more than seventy illustrations, but this version does not include the illustrations.

Note 2: In the table of contents, the New Testament is incorrectly called the Old Testament (this is around Kindle location 73).

I got this book to read to my children but the pictures are old and they did not enjoy the pictures as well as i thought they would. The stories are good as always.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 3 yr old loves the writing Sept. 16 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read from this every night at bedtime to my 3 year old. She loves it. The stories are true to the gospel but written in a way that my kid loves listening to. They are not confusing but simple yet they still capture the spirit of the story. Some nights I continue to read even after she has fallen asleep because this is so well written. You won't go wrong with this purchase.
