For the last few years, we have read through The Jesus Storybook Bible during Advent. With 22 stories from the Old Testament, it is the perfect lead in to the birth of Jesus. Further, it ties each individual story into the grand story of what God is doing in the world, culminating in the coming of Jesus. For much of my life I learned those old stories, but saw them just as moralistic stories about how to act. It wasn’t until I was much older that I saw the way they all tie in together. If you want to read a Bible with your kids that reads as a large story of God’s love for the world, this one is fantastic.
