Book to be used across generations!

This book was recommended to me by others, but I’d never seen an actual copy before. Catherine Vos was the wife of Geerhardus Vos, one of the greatest reformed theologians who has lived, I was keen to see what this book looked like!
I am so glad I purchased this! I was looking for a children’s bible that was more detailed than most, that explained the biblical text and pointed to God’s redemptive plan of salvation through Christ Jesus. Well, this is it! A beautiful, faithful & true to scripture narrative of the bible, containing many stories that are simply missed in children’s bibles. This is 800 pages long, but each chapter is around 2-3 pages, so a child can easily sit through one (10-15min). Includes 26 full page illustrations (none of Christ). It’s recommended for ages 7-12 to read alone, but anywhere from 3+ to read to. Highly recommend this purchase. To be used across generations for sure!

Great introduction for children to understand the unfolding of God’s salvation plan

We used to read to our children from the older 3 volume paperback version of Vos’ book. More recently, we wanted to give a copy for our grandchildren, but the only version available was a hardcover single volume, which only covered the New Testament. We were also disappointed that pictures of “Christ" had been introduced to that edition.
So, we were delighted that a complete edition was released which, like the original, did not include pictures of “Christ”. This new edition has great coloured illustrations, better than our original. Most important it still has the marvellous sweep of Biblical salvation history as told by the wife of Prof Geerhardos Vos.
