Have you ever asked yourself if the history found in the Bible is real? Do you ever wonder if it is fact or fiction?

In an effort to answer that questions, he embarks on a 12-year journey around the world in a quest for answers. Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus unlocks the mystery of this ancient saga, combining both scientific investigation with a retelling of the Exodus story to reveal an amazing pattern of evidence matching the biblical account that may challenge our understanding of history.

Discover The “Once Upon A Time Bible” and “Storybook Bible” Today #OnceUponATimeBible, #FlyBy

It seems everyone is talking about how they loved Disney’s new Beauty and the Beast live action movie. Fairy tales and Disney Animation are more popular than ever and Zonderkidz wanted to publish a storybook Bible and full-text Bible that would resonate with families and children who love this type of media.

Teaching our kids about the stories in the Bible is easier when the stories are in a format that they are used to, using language they understand. Unlike fairy tales, the stories in these books are the real deal! What a great way to teach my children about real heroes and stories of faith straight from God’s word.

The Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible features captivating illustrations along with a beautiful narrative that draws children in as you read aloud the major stories of the Bible. Stories include: Ruth, Abigail, Esther, The Parable of the Lost Sheep, The Prodigal Son, Mary Magdalene and many more. The Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible is available at Sam’s Club and where books are sold.

The Once Upon a Time Holy Bible starts the way every great story does, with once upon a time. However this hardcover Bible is not full of fairy tales. This New International Reader’s Version (NIrV) translation highlights 6 stories we all know from the Bible and presents them in a way children can relate to and understand.

Each story is told on four pages in full-color, illustrated splendor. Stories include: God Makes Man and Woman, Isaac and Rebekah, Ruth Find Happiness, Queen Esther, Mary and Joseph and an Angel and He Lives! The Once Upon a Time Holy Bible is available in hardcover and pink leathersoft cover where books are sold.

Let me know what you think of these versions of the greatest story ever told!

Today, it is redesigned with fresh, new art and ready to inspire a new generation of children for years to come. This colorful, kid-sized Bible is easy for my kids to read and the colorful illustrations on every page make the stories and characters of the Bible come to life for them.

It is no wonder why this Beginner’s Bible was named the 2006 Retailers Choice Award winner in Children’s Nonfiction. You can learn more by watching this video trailer for the redesigned Beginners’s Bible HERE.

#TheBiggestStory Now on DVD & Available as an Audio Book-#Giveaway #FlyBy

Kevin DeYoung’s book, The Biggest Story shares an exciting journey through the Bible. Starting in the Garden of Eden and ending with Christ’s resurrection and what that means for all of us. Now that book and the beautiful illustrations have been adapted into an animated short film available on DVD.

the-biggest-story-dvd

I was amazed the other night as I watched this with my kids, who sat there with their eyes glued to the screen, how quickly this film took us through the Bible. I think it is great because kids are captivated and do not grow tired as they watch it. It reinforces and connects the stories in the Bible and presents them in a way that kids can understand. It is also an excellent springboard that parents can use to elaborate on particular stories to get kids talking and thinking about our faith. Would be great to show in Sunday School as well.

There is also an audio book on CD that is narrated by Kevin DeYoung who is not only the author but the senior pastor of the University Reformed Church in East Lansing, MI. Kevin and his wife Trisha are the parents of seven children.
