grandma's picks - The Illustrated Bible - New Testament on CD!
I'm very happy to announce my new "grandma's pick" . . . the Illustrated New Testament on CD! Neely Press has released their complete Illustrated Bible on two cds - one for the Old Testament and one for the New Testament - "the Word of God for the child of God in all of us!" This Bible is available in the International Children's Bible and New American Standard Bible Versions and as it's creators say, is not "just another children's Bible storybook. In other words, we didn't want to have Bible pictures alongside words which are a retelling of God's Word, the Holy Scriptures. We wanted to draw attention to, magnify and clarify the actual Word of God. In those words lies the power of the Holy Spirit to change the lives of children and adults alike. In the same way written illustrations, or 'word pictures' are used to help make an idea easy to understand and memorable, our visual illustrations will make the actual Word of God easier to understand than ever before."
This CD is an amazing tool which you can use with your grandchildren! It is licensed for the original purchaser to make as many copies as they like for their own family's use and if you purchase it, you could also use it in any Sunday School classes you are teaching as well. It is a wonderful tool to get children and adults reading God's Word and since there is nothing more important we can do as grandma's than to help our grandchildren know, love and walk with Jesus all their lives, this Bible is a great resource for us to use to do exactly this!
I love how this Cd combines not only beautiful, colorful illustrations, but "word-for-word Scripture" for a combination which will capture the attention and interest of children, and adults. This is an actual Bible and is one you will find your grandchildren will want to read! I like the icb for use with children as the Bible scholars who worked on this Bible chose words which would be understandable by a third grade child.
Two huge bonuses I am thrilled to share with you . . . first of all, you can download 14 complete Bible Stories/Books from the website - Free Illustrated Bible - for free! Secondly, I am happy to say Neely Press not only sent me one Illustrated Bible New Testament CD for review, but they are also making another available for me to give away!
