What happens to a child when we turn a story into a moral lesson

As a family we have enjoyed reading Sally Lloyd-Jones’ the Jesus Storybook Bible as well as listening to the audio cds in the car. My six-year old knows that ‘every story whispers his name’ because through this Bible he’s learnt that the whole Bible is about Jesus. What’s more he’s getting better at anticipating how each Old Testament story points ahead to Christ.

Here is an excellent blog post by Sally Lloyd-Jones on just how crucial that copernican revolution really is if we are to produce children who don’t read themselves into every story of the Bible but begin to read Christ into every story.







Reading the blog I also discovered that the Jesus Storybook Bible has now also been made available as a Sunday School resource.
