Every story whispers his name …

One person is at the heart of every story found in the Bible. One man is the center of God’s entire redemption plan. This trade adaptation of Sally Lloyd-Jones’ bestselling Jesus Storybook Bible explores the connections and wonders of how one giant love for humanity pointed to one small baby who would grow up to be the one perfect person who would make things right again for everyone.

The Story of God’s Love for You features a new, never-before-seen image from award-winning illustrator Jago, as well as a two-color interior that is ideal for any age ready to encounter an amazing, Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.

If you have been following us for a while, you might have noticed my review of the Jesus Storybook Bible and Curriculum Kit, or maybe later the JSBB Collector’s Edition, or even later the Leatherbound edition. Originally published in 2007, but discovered in the Creative Madness Mama family in the spring of 2012 – we truly love the Jesus Storybook Bible in our family! Later in 2013, we discovered a companion book in Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing for the older crowd, be it family devotional or a reader beyond the picture book stage. Yet, hmm… what if you have a young person that you want to share the story of the Jesus Storybook Bible, but in a different format that a picture book Bible? Let me introduce you to the two-tone treasure of a book in The Story of God’s Love for You.

Creative Madness Mama reviews The Story of God's Love for You, the text only version of the Jesus Storybook Bible for all ages.

Leading on previous thoughts, we still love Sally Lloyd-Jones’ Bible storytelling…

How do I even begin? Ok, let’s start with the Bible. The Story of God’s Love For You is enchanting and unlike any novelized Bible I have experienced thus far (and trust me, I’ve seen a few!). Every single story in this story Bible points to Jesus. From the creation and Adam and Eve’s fall, Jesus is the solution. In the building of the Tower of Babel, Jesus is the answer. When Abraham leads his son Isaac to the alter, Christ is the lamb promised. Every story, every parable, every word comes down to Jesus Christ from the beginning and all the way until the end. It is solid in a Biblical foundation and traces everything to redemption through Jesus.

This it the most detailed Bible with more stories and situations that I have seen thus far in an early elementary age and younger Bible storybook and I do recommend it.

Same text. A new title. A new design. For a whole new audience.

Accessible to someone who might not pick up a book with the word “Bible” in it, or be drawn to an illustrated children’s book—this format removes any last barrier to someone hearing the greatest story ever told.

From Jago and Sally Lloyd-Jones, the creators of the bestselling Jesus Storybook Bible, comes this gorgeous and innovative collection of 101 simple-yet- profound thoughts on faith. Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing shares profound spiritual truths from the Bible told in a conversational tone—drawing insights from creation, history, science, the writings of great thinkers and preachers and writers, and more—to turn the reader’s eyes toward the God who loves them with a Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.

Perfect for family devotions, bedtime, story time, or even as a companion to The Jesus Storybook Bible, this accessible yet theologically rich book reveals biblical truth in word and image-all working together and designed to do one thing: to make the reader’s heart sing.

Have you read The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name backward and forward but still desire more from the words of Sally Lloyd-Jones and creative illustrations of Jago then I highly recommend Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing . It’s beautiful and every single devotion within is worthy to spend time pondering over. This one isn’t just for kids. I’m not sure I want to share I like it so much. 🙂
