The Bible and Me by Lois Rock and Alida Massari - REVIEWED

About the Book:
Lois Rock and Alida Massari have teamed up to create a Bible storybook full of inspiration and delight, sure to elicit moments of contemplation. Thoughtfully written, each section begins with a Bible quote and ends with a prayer or psalm that fits the theme of the story to help readers reflect further on what they've read. Alida Massari's richly colored and deeply peaceful illustrations fit perfectly with the meditative theme. Includes twenty stories from the Old and New Testaments. 

My Thoughts:
This is a beautiful book!  I love to discover a beautiful pictorial interpretation of God’s Word I’ve encountered lately!  The chapters are brief, but sometimes cover several major Biblical stories.  Each chapter ends with other related verses of Scripture that relate and strengthen the message of that particular chapter.  Each passage of Scripture is clearly notated, and I believe that this will open the door wide for great discussions with the young people that God allows you to share your life with.  Even the pictures are filled with interesting detail that will spark questions and discussion that will allow God to speak life into the hearts and soul of both parents and children.

I am thrilled to recommend this book to everyone serving children – family, friends, Sunday school, pre-school – anywhere children gather with an opportunity to introduce God’s Word into their lives!
