Book Description

Aug. 1 2008

From the story of the creation in Genesis to the dramatic visions of the end of time in Revelation, the stories and wisdom of the Bible have been spun into one captivating drama in this distinctive Bible. You will find stories of friends and enemies, war and peace, love and hate, and wickedness and holiness, and through each story shines the faith that has inspired generations. One key passage is recounted for each day and is accompanied by a corresponding prayer. After a full year, diligent readers will have read through the entire Bible. Filled with rich illustrations as well as a “story finder” to help locate a story to suit any occasion, this is a fantastic resource for children who wish to read about and learn the essence of the Bible.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Book, Poor Binding Sept. 15 2011
By Jennifer Bogart TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
When I was a little girl our family had a picture book with the most amazing illustrations in it. They were of a very specific illustrative style that I don't have the words to capture, but that have strongly impacted me and have proven to be incredibly memorable. If you've ever read the popular Gilgamesh picture books you might be able to visualize what I'm talking about.

When I came across The Lion Day-By-Day Bible I thought, 'Ah hah! Here is a story Bible with similar illustrations!' This day-by-day Bible is filled with gorgeous artwork, from the borders and small images on each page to the larger pieces every 10 pages or so, the art is exquisitely rich. The pages also feature colored sidebars to group the stories into groupings, but there is no legend provided for these groupings so the help they provide for navigation is questionable.

This is a chronological story Bible that has a one page reading and prayer for each day of the year. The breadth of story selection is excellent and covers so many parts of the Bible that typical story Bibles never get to. A story-finder index is included for finding stories for specific values, occasions, and topics.

I found that as I read through my own chronological Bible my readings and those I was sharing with my children were almost in lock-step, so I think the pacing is fabulous and very true to the pacing of Bible events.

So, all of that being said, this story Bible has a lot going for it. Unfortunately the binding is its weak point. Though a hardcover our binding soon split and it has continued to split and break down further, which is really a shame. Gorgeous illustrations, detailed story, but the binding just hasn't held up for us. I hope that this is only a problem with a few copies and not widespread throughout this printing.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Lion Day by Day Bible July 24 2009
By Charles Adams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The Lion Day by Day Bible is a poor choice as it does not accurately teach the Bible stories. Each story is filled with the author's own conjecture about what they believe might have happened. For example, they said that Cain was the pride and joy of Adam and Eve and had grown accustom to attention and Able was lest looked after so when God showed Able attention and not Cain that is why Cain reacted. This is not in the Scriptures. I bought this to read to my seven year old. I have already grown weary having to accurize every story I read. The purpose of a Bible story book is so children will learn the Bible stories, however, if the author doesn't know the Bible stories then the book would be useless. Please seriously rethink this purchase and look for reviews which tell of the accuracy of a book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chronological Bible for kids Jan. 5 2009
By LeAnne Hardy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I am currently reading through The Daily Bible (Harvest House, 1986). It organizes the Bible in chronological order, mixing the psalms in David's life, the prophets where they occur in Jewish history, harmonizing the gospels, etc. The Lion Day-by-day Bible is essentially the same thing for kids. 365 one-page stories take the reader through the entire Bible from the creation story in Genesis to the new heaven and new earth of John's Revelation of Jesus Christ.

Unlike most Bible storybooks for children, significant space is given to non-narrative passages like the prophets and epistles at the point where they fit in the historical context. The language is simple, and despite the lack of pronouns used for God, it reads smoothly and effectively. Only occasionally is a non-Biblical character invented, as in the telling of the story of Job at the time of the exile when it was probably first written down.

The illustrations are stunning. What drew my eye initially was that they showed dark-skinned, dark-haired Middle Easterners, not Minnesota Swedes. A few small motifs such as the serpent, the tablets of the law and a desert, are repeated in various contexts. Rather than mar this gorgeous book, I can easily imagine the repetition sending the curious searching through the pages, stopping to read along the way.

Each story includes a date, a notation of the Biblical chapters from which it comes and a short prayer. Reading the Bible in chronological order means you are not reading the Christmas story on December 25 or the Easter story during Holy Week. A child-friendly index directs readers to the right pages if they want to read by the church calendar. Dates could easily be ignored altogether by a child eager to read the exciting story of God's salvation straight through.

As easily as the book could be used by children on their own, I suspect it was designed for family worship. The print is not large and the background is often colored, which can cause some strain for struggling readers of English. But I suspect the beautiful design will motivate them to make the effort.

This is not a first Bible story book for pre-schoolers. It seems to be primarily aimed at primary-school children in Western countries, but the sophisticated style and inclusion of non-narrative material make it suitable for teens and even adults anywhere who are working on English reading skills.
