Greatest Stories from the Bible {Book Review}

When Thomas Nelson sent me the heirloom edition of the New King James Version Bible, I was impressed by the beauty of the book. It’s exactly the kind of volume that you’d pass on to your children after spending hundreds of nights by their beds, reading to them the ancient and eternal stories held in the pages. The paper is thick and heavy, just as the pages of storybooks ought to be. Really, you ought to be making room on your shelf for this book.

Thomas Nelson was quick to state that it was not a Bible. But it is. Kind of. There are some parts missing but most of the major players come in to take the turn in history. Parts of Genesis are highlighted in the lyrical NKJV while other parts are left out. The publisher states that the selections from the NKJV were picked to “tell the story of God and His interaction with humankind.” In doing this, 250 stories are stuffed inside the volume with an easy index in the from to help you find just the one you’re looking for. A ribbon helps you mark where you’ve left so you can pick it right back up when the time comes.

If you are looking for a good gift to give to your grandkids or nieces&nephews, this is a good choice.

 Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
