Lion Hudson 2007
Reviewed by Wendy Scott, Kenmore Uniting Church. This truly is the story of Jesus. The book covers the four gospels and Acts from the beginning of the word (John) to Pentecost. It is written in simple conversational language in chronological order with text reference and historical or cultural background as needed. The glossy fully illustrated A4 sized paperback is appealing to both children and adults. Whilst the target audience is children with each double page bedtime story size, complete in itself covers all the favourite stories and parables of Jesus, it would be suitable for new Christians to familiarise them with what is in the Bible. There is a table of contents, index at the back and an explained map at the back. I loved The Story of Jesus, as will my grandchildren.
