Amidst the countless famous stories in the bible, there are some that stand out, that never grow old no matter how many times they are told. This book gathers some of the most beloved stories and heroic, memorable characters—from David and Goliath to Daniel in the lion’s den, from creation to the Good Shepherd—and tells them with a simplicity appropriate for young children. Short text and bold, accessible paintings make this a perfect book for introducing young readers to some of the bible’s most beloved stories.
