The "Barnabas Children's Bible" presents a continuous thread from "Genesis" to "Revelation" in chronological, rather than biblical, order. Here there are retellings of familiar and less well-known Bible passages, including "Psalm 23", the "Lord's Prayer", teaching on justice from Micah and Paul's words on love. The 365 stories could be used as daily readings or as a dip-in read. Ideal resource for Sunday school, each story has a Bible quotation from the "CEV", encapsulating a truth from the story. Children can familiarise themselves with the wealth of literature in the Bible using the full contents of stories or the useful indexes of people and famous passages. There is also a fascinating encyclopedia of background information on topics including civilisations, food, towns religious practices, and daily life.
