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 Bible stories rewritten for children June 30 2013
By J. Chambers - Published on Amazon.com
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).

2.0 out of 5 stars Misleading Feb. 27 2013
By Erin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This does not truly appear to be for children, and the very first story had a typo (I know that's being nit picky). Also one of the top reviews says there are many illustrations. That was false. There are zero illustrations, and this is not well written for children. Sorry.
