66 Books: One Story: If you've read the Bible, you probably know some of the important battles, a good chunk of the life of Jesus, maybe a Psalm or two—but what do you know about the minor prophets and the epistles? Do you have some loose ends that need tying up? This is where a book like this helps. The Bible has one author—God—so we need to see the Bible as a whole, as God's Word. Every book of the Bible is the breath of God and the plan of Salvation spans all of Scripture. In this Bible overview each book of the Bible is summarized; background given; themes and theology explained. There is also a Salvation Thread feature that shows how God's plan of redemption is not just part of the New Testament—but runs throughout the whole of the Bible.

 

Jesus storybook bibleJesus Storybook Bible: Containing forty-six Bible stories from creation to Revelation with beautiful, rich, and vibrant artwork, The Jesus Storybook Bible invites children to join in the greatest of all adventures and discover for themselves that Jesus is at the center of God's great story of salvation - and at the center of their story, too.

 

 

 

the lightlingsThe Lightlings: Dr. R.C. Sproul weaves an allegorical tale that captures the essence of the biblical story of redemption in a manner that will fascinate and delight children. A race of tiny beings known as lightlings represent humanity as they pass through all the stages of the biblical drama—creation, fall, and redemption. In the end, children will understand why some people fear light more than darkness, but why they need never fear darkness again. The Lightlings is an excellent introduction to the key themes of Scripture. Richly detailed illustrations by Justin Gerard will hold children's interest, and discussion questions and Scripture references in the back will help parents guide children into the deeper meaning of the story.

9781845504632My 1st Book about Jesus: Children want to know about Jesus. They flocked to him in the past and they still do today. Little books like this will help them to understand the truth about Jesus, about who he is and what he has done for them. With key Bible verses as the focus this book shows Jesus throughout scripture. We see him as he was and is and will be. Encourage your children to make friends with the friend of sinners, the Saviour of the world and the Lord of Glory. As they soak in God's word, pray that they will, with the power of the Holy Spirit, find a true and eternal relationship with Jesus Christ and that he will, truly be theirs.

 

9781567692105The Priest with Dirty Clothes: In this new edition of his classic story, The Priest with Dirty Clothes, Dr. R.C. Sproul continues his project of illustrating theological concepts for children. In this book, he teaches the concept of imputation, which lies at the heart of the important biblical doctrine of justification. Using the story of Joshua the high priest (Zechariah 3:1 5) as his jumping-off point, Dr. Sproul weaves a classic tale about a young priest who is invited to preach his first sermon before the king and his court. But on his way to the palace, he falls from his horse, getting his clothes hopelessly muddy. Jonathan finds that he needs powerful help if he is to stand before the king. This edition of The Priest with Dirty Clothes includes all-new illustrations by Justin Gerard and a new "For the Parents" section to help them bring out the truths of the book for their children.

9781567691047The Prince's Poison Cup: Dr. R. C. Sproul continues his series of books designed to present deep biblical truths to children on their own level. In this work, he focuses on the atonement to show that Jesus had to endure the curse of sin in order to redeem His people from their spiritual death. When Ella gets sick and has to take yucky medicine, she wonders why something that will help her get well has to taste so bad. When she puts the question to Grandpa, he tells her the story of a great King and His subjects who enjoyed wonderful times together - until the people rebelled against the King and drank from a forbidden well. To their horror, they found that the beautiful water in the well made their hearts turn to stone. To reclaim His people, the King asks His Son, the Prince, to drink from a well of horrid poison. The poison will surely kill the Prince - but He is willing to drink it to please His Father and help His people.

9781567691092Sammy and His Shepherd: Susan Hunt offers families a delightful story, built around the Twenty-third Psalm, that will help children grow in their understanding of what it is to live among a community of redeemed people guided by a loving Lord. Sammy the sheep lives a happy life as part of a flock that is well cared for by a kind and good shepherd. But when he strikes up a friendship with a sheep in the next pasture, he begins to understand that not all shepherds are so loving. Eventually, Sammy's kind shepherd purchases Sammy's friend for himself, and from that point Sammy takes delight in helping his new "sister" sheep get to know their shepherd and his ways.
