What a fantastic book! I’ve just received the NKJV Greatest Stories of the Bible from Thomas Nelson Publishers, and it is awesome! I must say I was completely blown away by it! It is a wonderful collection of stories from the Bible, including both Old and New Testaments (however it is not the actual Bible), using the New King James Version. The hard cover is absolutely stunning, made to look like an heirloom you might find passed down from generation to generation, or in an antique book store. The pages are sturdy and attractive. There is also a bookmark ribbon to help mark your place.
There are 250 Bible stories told, from Genesis through Revelation. The Table of Contents itself is eight pages long and includes the story title, as well as the Scripture reference. This book would make either a great devotional or resource for teaching. It would be completely appropriate for adults as well as children. It would make a wonderful addition to any personal library. I am particularly excited about how easy it is for parents to share with their children in a family devotional time format.
This book was provided to me for review by Thomas Nelson Publishers.
