When I was a child I remember my parents reading to me every night before bedtime. It was my favorite time of the evening. My parents would take turns reading to me at night and I especially liked looking at all the pictures while they read. I had a lot of favorite books, but one set, in particular, was at the top. That set of books was “The Bible Story” and you know what? It remains to be a major favorite for me now! No matter what kind of day I had (when I was little), when my parents read a Bible story to me and we talked about it, my little soul was comforted. I want to tell you here about a way to bring comfort to your child. It works and it is an awesome way to start your child in the Bible.
Suffer the little children
Matthew 19:14 states “But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”
Throughout all of scripture, we see just how much the Lord loves all the little children. In the passage above, Jesus was responding to His disciples when they were trying to push away the people who wanted to have Jesus bless their children.
There are passages throughout the Bible that address children, our responsibility to teach our children and a promise for great peace for our children when they are taught God’s word. I have a couple of passages below for you to see.
Psalm 127:3 states “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.”
Isaiah 54:13 states “All your children shall be taught by the Lord,
And great shall be the peace of your children.”
So, parents, grandparents, and caregivers, we need to read God’s word to our children and explain it to them in a language they can understand.
One of the very best ways we can do this is to read from the Bible Story set because the entire Bible has been written in language that elementary children can understand. The illustrations are wonderful and your child will love the pictures.
The Bible Story
The Bible Story with 10 volumes was written by Arthur S. Maxwell (aka Uncle Arthur) and originally published in 1953. If you were born in the 1960s or 1970s, I am sure you remember seeing these books at the doctor’s office or the dentist. I know I sure do! Let’s go on.
These are hardcover books and are the most comprehensive set of Bible stories for children there ever was! I have yet to see anything else like it for children!
The entire Bible is covered in these books from beginning to end. The quoted Bible texts are taken from the New International Version (NIV).
The entire Bible in this 10 volume set
The entire Bible is covered, beginning with stories from Genesis in volume 1 and ending with stories from Revelation in volume 10.
The Bible Story is definitely a “classic publication” but is the truest according to the Bible. One thing is for sure, God’s Word will never be “outdated” and so we must look at this in much of the same way.
The stories are interpreted to meet the elementary child’s understanding capability and they follow the written word of God precisely.
God is love
The Bible is full of stories telling us how much God loves us and how He always will deliver us. There are stories that tell of great victories such as Daniel in the lion’s den and David and Goliath.
There is a story about 3 young Hebrew boys named Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and they were put into a fiery furnace because they would not bow to an idol. The story tells of how a “4th” man was seen by the king, walking around in the furnace with the 3 Hebrew boys. The king stated that the 4th person looked like the Angel of the Lord.
The Hebrew boys were let out of the furnace, they were unharmed and did not even smell like smoke! What a testimony!
You will be encouraged as much as your child when you read through all of these wonderful and true stories/histories found in the word of God.

I have a prior post about a wonderful study Bible for children ages 8 to 12 and the title is “Train Up Your Child in God’s Way.” In this post, I tell you about the Kid’s Study Bible and all the great stuff it has. It is an excellent study Bible for kids and adults.
I know you and your child will enjoy this wonderful Bible Story set and will also learn a great deal. You will grow deeper in your walk with the Lord and if you do not know Him personally, I pray you will! God’s word states in John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.“
Are you a “whosoever?”
God bless you and yours,
