HASH(0xa77b966c) out of 5 stars Disjointed and Unsuitable Nov. 11 2010
By Evan Getz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My daughter recently received this book as a gift and was excited to read these stories with me. When I sat down and read with her, I was disturbed by the way some of these stories were told. The authors try to select stories other than those usually included in collections of Bible stories for children, which is a fine goal but very poorly realized in this case. First, these stories are disjointed. In each selection, there is very little sense of a story--it's as if the authors wanted more to make an interesting (even shocking) story than one that is successful simply by virtue of its use of plot, tension, and compelling characters.

Also, the details the authors use to flesh out the Bible stories were sometimes unsuitable for children. For instance, the story of Zacharias and Elizabeth contains lots of extras obviously meant to elaborate upon the skeletal biblical account of the couple's relationship. The authors write that after Zacharias gestures to Elizabeth what the angel told him, then "That night Elizabeth and Zechariah slept together and a baby began to form inside Elizabeth's body." I am far from prudish abotu human sexuality, but every child who already knows how babies are made does not need the reminder of how John the Baptist was conceived. And children who have not yet been informed about the details of conception are likely to be confused by this story.

Obviously, the Bible contains lots of details inappropriate for children, and this book seems to seek opportunities to introduce "growing kids" to these details. Sorry, but I think "growing kids" should be introduced to more complex thoughts regarding salvation, the Incarnation, and the goodness of God rather than incidents of rape, murder, and sexual intercourse (all of which are mentioned at least once in this book).

Bottom line: If parents choose to read this book to their children, they should edit it as they read, but it's really not a good book to read in a church or school setting.

HASH(0xa77b96c0) out of 5 stars Disapointed April 20 2009
By F. C. Patterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
While there are many more stories to tell from the Bible than the ones that are typically included in children's books, this selection was at times shocking. I also understand that there are many instances in the Bible of horrible atrocities with lessons to be learned from an adult perspective. However I wouldn't enjoy explaining these to my 6 year old. Several stories, in my opinion, were not suitable for my children to hear. The stories of Hagar, Dinah, and Lot stand out, with semi graphic depictions of brutality, murder, and rape. Reading these would undoubtedly lead to questions from my daughter that at this point I shouldn't need to answer.

HASH(0xa77b9af8) out of 5 stars Harsh voice, strange content Sept. 21 2011
By readerme - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was delighted to get this for my kids to hear. Unfortunately, Shannon's voice is extremely harsh, so it was difficult to listen to. She sounds angry, mean, and harsh. Her enunciation is too rigid, with odd consonants being emphasized, making it have a grating sound quality. Also, the content does not seem to be picked for children. While I agree that the whole of Scripture should be taught and instilled in our children, the stories seemed inappropriate. Overall, this was a strange combination and I would not recommend it.

HASH(0xa77b9eb8) out of 5 stars The author should stick to writing for adults July 16 2014
By Frank E. Rendla - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Thankfully, this was a library book. I made the mistake of reading this to my 5 year old without pre-reading, (I stopped midway through the second story then read some of the others to myself). This book is written as a book to be read to children, yet it contains content that is more appropriate for a much older audience. For example; in the story of Abram; Sarah, "told Abram to sleep with her servant, Hagar, and have a son." In the story of Hagar, Sarah says, "But if you and my husband have a baby together, the child will be mine." In the Story of Lot's Wife, the men of Sodom want Lot to bring out the angels so, "We will treat them as if they are our wives." In the story of Dinah, "When she tried to scream, he covered her mouth and forced her to the ground." I do want my children to learn these Bible stories, but at an age appropriate level.

We are in the middle of this one and are really enjoying it! My 6 1/2 year old son really likes these stories! The illustrations are beautiful and the "growing time" section after each story tells interesting facts, asks questions and helps your child apply the lessons to his/her own life. If you are looking for a nice collection of bible stories and your child has outgrown the really "kiddie" versions, this is a great chioce!
