The Best Gift

The simple Christmas story ... a Babe born in a manger. Simple, but the most extraordinary event ever. God coming down to rescue us, to bring Love, to give us Life.

Pausing during this busy season, I am choosing to read through a book intended for children ... but more and more, I am hearing of adults who are reading this book, and finding the simple Truths of the Bible soak into their souls like never before. The Truth that sets us free to really live.

Some of the first words in The Jesus Storybook Bible ... "God wrote, 'I love you' - He wrote it in the sky, and on the earth, and under the sea. He wrote His message everywhere! Because God created everything in His world to reflect Him like a mirror - to show us what He is like, to help us know Him, to make our hearts sing."

If anyone reading this is still searching the stores for that last Christmas gift to buy ... think about this one. Last Christmas we purchased one for each of our married daughters & their families, to share with their own children (and to enjoy themselves). And ... we also purchased one for our home.

Beautifully written and illustrated, each story from the Bible points to Jesus, God's Gift of Love to us. "It takes the whole Bible to tell this Story. And at the center of the Story, there is a baby. Every Story in the Bible whispers His name."
