The Jesus Storybook Bible Sweepstakes
I am blogging about The Jesus Storybook Bible not only because I could win 16 copies (a case) of The Jesus Storybook Bible Deluxe Edition, but because it sounds like a very intriguing storybook for kids and parents alike!
The illustrations are fantastic and although I have yet to read this storybook myself this is what the website says about it...
"Every Story Whispers His Name…
Written for children ages four and up, The Jesus Storybook Bible tells the one story underneath all the stories of the Bible and points to the birth of a child, the Rescuer, Jesus. Complete with 44 Bible stories, The Jesus Storybook Bible paints a beautiful portrait of Jesus and invites children to see that he is not only at the center of God’s great story of redemption—he is at the center of their story too. Children and adults alike will be captivated by the beautifully written narrative and the original and unique illustrations by accomplished artist Jago. Lloyd-Jones’ powerful gift of storytelling draws the reader into the greatest adventure of all time in an exciting page-turner that kids (and adults) find hard to put down.
Since its release in 2007, The Jesus Storybook Bible has become a must-have for children and adults and has grown into a brand that includes: a Spanish edition, an ebook for large and small group presentations, and the new Deluxe Edition, which includes the complete book on audio CD, read by award-winning British actor David Suchet. The audio from the Deluxe Edition is also available separately."
Just the illustrations alone should make you want to go out and pre-order it (it is available October 2009) or at least try to win it yourself!! Besides Submitting your e-mail address and blog-post URL for entry you can go to the website to read a page, hear the audio, and learn more about the author, illustrator, and audio reader. There are also free downloads of mp3 and pdf from the book and audio on the website as well.
