The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The Jesus Storybook Bible invites you and your children into the story of God’s never stopping, never giving up, unbreaking, always, and forever love. This heartfelt, children’s Bible storybook, which has impacted over three million families, introduces children to God’s wonderful story, and the savior at the center of that story.
The Jesus Storybook Bible is very different from every other kids’ Bibles. While other kids’ Bibles contain stories from the Old and New Testaments, The Jesus Storybook Bible tells the story beneath all the stories in the Bible, pointing to Jesus as our savior.

"God saw all that he had made and he loved them. And they were lovely because he loved the. But God saved the best for last. From the beginning, God had a shining dream in his heart. He would make people to share his Forever Happiness. They would be his children, and the world would be their perfect home. So God breathed life into Adam and Eve. When they opened their eyes, the first thing they ever saw was God's face. And when God saw them he was like a new dad. "You look like me," he said. "You're the most beautiful thing I've ever made!""
"Just trust me,' the serpent whispered. 'You don't need God. One smal taste, that's all, and you'll be happier than you could ever dream...' Eve picked up the fruit and ate some. And Adam ate some, too. And a terrible lie came into the world. It would never leave. It would live on in every human heart, whispering to everyone one of God's children: 'God doesn't love me.'"
It gets better later on in the book, but there's just too much added in the way of emotions, particularly on God's part, for me to feel comfortable. And I understand what the author was trying to do. She was trying to make the Bible personal to children with an angle that points toward Christ, a desire I applaud. But that doesn't mean we can twist the Bible to say things it doesn't say. I'll be sending it back and buying something that's a little less creative.
As a pastor, I felt that this was more a book about God than a children’s bible. The things the book was saying are grounded in Scripture properly but it’s not a Bible. It’s a book about God- the author takes major liberties with the stories (which I don’t necessarily have a problem with because they are acceptable conclusions to come to but it needs said that it is not a Bible). It is a children’s book about God.
I’m going to be very clear, this is not a Bible. This is a prose story authored by a lady with a wonderfully big heart. I can tell from her writing that she really loves the Lord. However this is not the authoritative word of God. She basically goes through the Bible from beginning to end and writes her own story about how she thinks people would have felt and communicated. Once again, this is not an actual Bible with Bible verses. This is a story based on truth, with added fictitious details. I tried reading the creation story of Genesis to my five-year-old son. About two pages into it he stopped me and said, “Dad, this is not the real Bible. God never said those things.“
Is this book OK for children? My answer is no. If you want your children to know the word of God, read them the word of God. If you read them this story, then they will be confused when you read them the actual word of God. I know this lady meant well, but she adds all sorts of things in quotes that God said, which He did not say in the actual authoritative Bible. I know she meant well, but this book cannot stay in my house. I have already returned this book for a refund.
