The Story of King Jesus

amazon barnes & noble Christianbook.com Goodreads
People of God pass their faith to the next generation by telling the story of how God rescues his children. This richly illustrated book continues to tell that story—from the creation of the world to Jesus’s victory over death. Designed for children ages 4 to 8, The Story of King Jesus is the gospel told in a single story—a story meant to be read from start to finish in one sitting.

The Story of King Jesus will captivate your child’s imagination, nurture their spiritual curiosity, and draw them into the full Bible story as they embark on a lifetime of following Jesus the King.

Ben Irwin is coauthor of Fascinating People of the Bible and one of the creators of The Story: The Bible as One Continuing Story of God and His People. He studied theology at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary and spent several years as a writer for World Vision. He and his wife, Amanda, live in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with their two children.

Hott Review:

What I liked: The Story of King Jesus is a sweet board book I’d enjoy sharing with little ones. It’s taken a bit of artistic liberty to make it simple for the kiddos and changed it to familiar terms but generally, The Story of King Jesus complies with the Bible.

I wish I’d had The Story of King Jesus to share with the kids when they were little. It was amazing to me how he was able to cram so much of the Bible into a short kids book and still keep it enticing! Plus, give us hope for the future. 😉

What I didn’t like: First, the book has been removed from the Kindle Library. So, you can’t purchase it. I’m guessing that they’re fiixing the issues. Honestly, though, the only real issue is that there is no text per se. The text is included on the images. Which is annoying for me, but I’m sure very difficult for readers that need a larger font.
