Editorial Reviews
Review
‘The Jesus Storybook Bible is unlike any other storybook. True, that’s to be expected when you combine the mesmerizing illustrations of Jago and the award-winning writing of Sally Lloyd-Jones, a Brit with an uncanny knack for storytelling. Not only is each story as vividly illustrated as it is portrayed, but also each tale is telling one Big Story—the Story of Jesus. Even the Old Testament stories of ‘The young hero and the horrible giant’ and ‘Daniel and the scary sleepover’ come full circle to Jesus, the greatest Hero, King, Lover and Rescuer the world has ever known. — More to Life Magazine

(More to Life Magazine )

”The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name’ disproves the adage that you can’t judge a book by its cover. Jago’s award-winning cover art is a foretaste of the whimsically insightful and richly colored drawings that await you on every one of the book’s 351 pages. The illustrations alone are worth the price of the book….Jago the illustrator, and Sally Lloyd-Jones the author, are a good pair. She brings the same creativity and sense of humor to her telling of the Bible’s stories….But Lloyd-Jones’s writing isn’t cutesy. She has a grasp of the profound. How does one explain to a child the agony of Jesus in Gethsemane, and his prayer of surrender to his Father? Lloyd-Jones does it as well as any biblical commentator….The title and subtitle are even better than the book’s delightful illustrations and narrative — because they provide, in one deft stroke, the interpretive key that unlocks the meaning of the whole Bible. ‘The Jesus Storybook Bible’ says it all: The Scriptures are not merely a collection of stories designed to teach moral lessons. As Jesus explained to the men walking the road to Emmaus on Resurrection Sunday, the whole Bible is about Jesus. In the words of the subtitle, every story whispers his name….Lloyd-Jones manages to show again and again the presence of Christ in all the Old Testament Scriptures, and the presence of the Old Testament Scriptures in the life of Christ.’ — Christianity Today

(Christianity Today )

The Jesus Storybook Bible is, in my opinion, one of the best resources available to help both children and adults see the Jesus-centered story line of the Bible. Tullian Tchividjian , Senior Pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church — PCA, Fort Lauderdale, FL.

(PCA, Fort Lauderdale, FL. )

The quality and originality of this retelling of the Bible is impressive. Difficult concepts for children are clearly explained within the context of their stories. The text blends perfectly with the strong color and texture of the illustrations, which are original and lively and a million miles from ‘traditional’. The book, enhanced by the audio retelling will appeal to all children, not just those from a Christian background. — School Library Journal UK

(School Library Journal UK )
Review
‘I would urge not just families with young children to get this book, but every Christian–from pew warmers, to ministry leaders, seminarians and even theologians! Sally Lloyd-Jones has captured the heart of what it means to find Christ in all the scriptures, and has made clear even to little children that all God’s revelation has been about Jesus from the beginning–a truth not all that commonly recognized even among the very learned.’ — Dr. Tim Keller, Redeemer, NY, NY

Wow! and Wow! October 12, 2009
By Elyse Fitzpatrick
Format:Hardcover|Amazon Verified PurchaseAs a grandmother of six, I’m always on the search for edifying Christ-centered material, which is why I bought the Jesus Storybook Bible for my little darlings…Then I heard David Suchet’s reading of it and this wonderful book, which had already earned a “Wow!” from me got another really big “Wow!”…and so, it’s a good thing that I can order with one-click because I ordered copies for the kids (again!) and for my pal the preschool teacher and for…and for…
Really, Suchet’s readings made these stories spring to life and I’ve put them on my MP3 player and listen in the grocery store and at night when I can’t sleep and when I’m on the airplane and need to be reminded of God’s great love for me in Christ Jesus, my Rescuer.
You really must get this — even if you don’t have little ones. The child He calls you as needs to hear the story again and again.

I love, love, love this children’s Bible! October 27, 2009
By Sam K.
Format:Hardcover|Amazon Verified PurchaseI got this last week and we’ve been listening to the stories in the car. Everyone is captivated! The car gets so quiet so we can all listen (adults and kids alike). The narrator did a wonderful job. I’ve given out well over a dozen copies of the Jesus Storybook Bible and now I will most definitely switch to buying and gifting the Deluxe Edition.

Best Children’s Bible Out there March 18, 2010
By Dana E. Ellis
Format:HardcoverThe Deluxe Edition is a complete package of the reading on CDs and a read-along book. And, since we’ve put the girls to bed and down for naps with books on CDs since they were old enough to hold the book, I knew this set would be right up their alley. I must admit that when I received the book, just before Christmas, I set Emma up with the book and CD’s and saved my reading with her for something that she couldn’t do on her own. However, when I picked the book up to review, I decided that it was something that we needed to read together.

It is a nice bonus that the reader is David Suchet, one of Great Britain’s most distinguished actors, best known for playing Agatha Christie’s super-sleuth, Hercule Poirot. Since Emma finds a British accent as one of the upmost pleasurable things in life (apparently all princesses have British accents), she was hooked upon hearing the first lines of the introduction..

Illustrated by award winning, Jago, the illustrations are whimsical interpretations that serve to help bring the stories alive. While I know that illustrations are an important part of wrapping children into a book, personally, I am typically drawn to the words without paying much attention to the illustrations. However, Jago’s illustrations are so truly captivating and compliment the story so well, that I found myself reading the story through the pictures before I even began reading the words. I also found myself flipping back through to admire his artwork (something I do very rarely).

Those elements alone are worth the cost of the book. But, most surprisingly, I found the most beautiful description of the way that I want my children to view the Bible, right within the first pages of the book.

It’s taken all of my will power not to write the whole introduction right here and now. But, please allow me to share just a couple of pieces in which Sally Lloyd-Jones seemed to have looked straight into my heart and somehow put the passion that I have for my children to know God as a loving and compassionate father into words that I had not yet found.

Sally Lloyd-Jones writes:
“The Bible isn’t mainly about you and what you should be doing. It’s about God and what he has done.”

“Now, some people think the Bible is a book of rules, telling you what you should and shouldn’t do. The Bible certainly does have some rules in it. They show you how life works best. But the Bible isn’t mainly about you and what you should be doing. It’s about God and what he has done.

Other people think the Bible is a book of heroes, showing you people you should copy. The Bible does have some heroes in it, but (as you’ll soon find out) most of the people in the Bible aren’t heroes at all. They make some big mistakes (sometimes on purpose), they get afraid and run away. At times, they’re downright mean.

No, the Bible isn’t a book of rules, or a book of heroes. The Bible is most of all a Story. It’s an adventure story about a young Hero who comes from a far country to win back his lost treasure. It’s a love story about a brave Prince who leaves his palace, his throne-everything-to rescues the ones he loves. It’s like the most wonderful of fairy tales that has come true in real life”.

I completely agree with Dr. Tim Keller’s endorsement of the book below:

“I would urge not just families with young children to get this book, but every Christian–from pew warmers, to ministry leaders, seminarians and even theologians! Sally Lloyd-Jones has captured the heart of what it means to find Christ in all the scriptures, and has made clear even to little children that all God’s revelation has been about Jesus from the beginning–a truth not all that commonly recognized even among the very learned.” — Dr. Tim Keller, Redeemer, NY, NY

Book Description
Series: Bible Kjv | Publication Date: October 26, 2010
Oxford is proud to announce a limited edition of the 1611 text of the King James Bible, with real leather binding, gilt edging, ribbon marker, gift presentation plate, and protective cloth slipcase.

This is the most authoritative edition of the King James Bible available. The text of the 1611 edition differs from modern editions of the King James Version in thousands of details, and this edition is the most authentic version of the original text that has ever been published. It follows the 1611 text page-for-page and line-for-line, reproducing all misprints rather than correcting them. The volume also reprints the large body of preliminary matter, which includes genealogies, maps, and lists of readings, as well as the translator’s preface to the reader. The text features an easy-to-read modern font instead of the black-letter type of the original, with the exception of the original decorative letters and early page ornaments, which have been reproduced. The volume concludes with an essay by Renaissance Studies expert, Gordon Campbell, on the first edition of the King James Bible.

The four hundredth anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible will be a major event, with celebrations held all over the world. This beautiful Anniversary Edition will make an elegant keepsake with which to remember this event as well as a marvelous gift for anyone interested in the Bible. (christian friends, anyone interested in christianity)

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a wonderful Bible!, November 9, 2010
By D. J. OROURKE

This review is from: King James Bible: 400th Anniversary Edition (Bible Kjv) (Hardcover)
I’ve had mine for about three weeks now and I am very pleased with it. It is large, and as such it’s not a carry Bible and it’s not a read in bed Bible. It is, however, a really pleasant experience reading this Bible at a desk. I happen to do a lot of my reading at my desk anyhow, so it works out great.

The layout of the text is fantastic, with lots of white space in the text, which makes it very easy reading. The line spacing is very generous as well. The references are just great; not nearly as overwhelming as, say, a 1560 Geneva or any modern reference Bible. I like the sparse references. There are lots of alternate readings provided, which I actually prefer over the cross-references. They really make reading the KJV much easier by clarifying vague or confusing verses.

WIDE MARGINS! Nowhere in the product description does it mention that is a fantastically wide margined Bible. I’ve never even seen a genuine 1611 KJV, so this kind of came as a surprise to me. But, wow, if your a note taking kind of person there is lots of open space for you to use. Basically something around 1 3/8 on the sides and just under and inch on the top and bottom. Another really nice thing is that the inside margins are big too, which means that NO text gets even close to the gutter. All the text is within a box on a flat sheet of paper no matter where you are in the Bible. Just a great presentation.

The font is not overly large considering the size of the book, but it is plenty big. Probably 9’ish sized font. The overall quality is really nice. I’m not sure that it’s a “luxury” edition exactly, but for $50 it is a super fantastic buy. The leather cover, gilding, paper and binding all seem to be of a very high quality. I have zero issues with this Bible. For the purpose that it serves I can’t recommend it enough. If you want a classic looking KJB for desktop reading, with big margins and 1611 content, buy this one… you won’t regret it.

I get goosebumps when I read this by candlelight; simply amazing. God bless and peace to all my brothers and sisters in Christ! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars Physical Splendour at a bargain, February 23, 2011
By Dr. Chuang Wei Ping “Dr Chuang”

This review is from: King James Bible: 400th Anniversary Edition (Bible Kjv) (Hardcover)
The chap who said “Never judge a book by its cover” probably never ended up selling a single book. I could easily have walked by this Bible in a shop, which from the outside, looked unremarkable except for its size, and concealed in a dowdy maroon cloth covered slip-cover.

Yet the Anglican Journal uses superlatives like “Physical splendour” to describe this “Quartercentenary Edition, an exact reprint in Roman Type, page for page, line for line and letter for letter of the KJV otherwise known as the Authorized Version published in the year 1611 with an anniversary Essay by Gordon Campbell.” “Quartercentenary” triggers off a spell-check alert, and it is a good thing we all understand that this does not mean 25 years.

The real burgundy leather over hard board covers has simple but solid gold stamping. It does not grab appeal. It slowly grows on you, very slowly I must add. The burgundy colour is a refreshing departure from the regular black covers. It is not a hip bible and its majesty took me some time to appreciate.

This bible is huge. The statistics of 11.3 x 9.1 x 2.4 inches and 6.3 pounds does not strike you as large until you are actually holding it. Of course, it is small in comparison to the original KJV, which is 17 inches tall, 30 pounds in weight, which may actually require two people to lift into the pulpit.

In a world of vertically longish bibles, it is rare to find one so exquisitely proportioned. The width of the bible being slightly over 0.8 times the height is the ideal W:L ratio. It is the width, which gives this bible a distinct presence. When it is open, it is a magnificent sight as a book with such a wide “wing-span” is very rare. To read this bible, the support of a table or a bed is needed. I prefer the bed.

The bible opens up flat. The margins are really wide, which adds to the aesthetics, and a great help to post-it users like me. The uncluttered layout makes the “bland” parts of the Old Testament easy to read.

For this review, I have bent the bible backwards to examine the binding “crash”, “mull” or that thingy which supports the stitching. It looked even and nicely done when viewed with a fibre-optic light. The binding – the first book part to give way and also the least visible – looks strong and the hinges of the covers likewise. Some additional effort made to secure the hinges was visible. The binding will resist the shearing forces in the hands of those more accustomed to handling small “i”-phones than very big books. I think this bible was built to last. There is nothing which says that it is acid-free, although it looks like acid-free paper is used.

The pages are glare-free even under the strongest (halogen) or uneven lighting (like from a bedside lamp). The pages are thick matt-white, and do not stick together. Every leaf feels strong and does not crinkle easily. Not much of yellow highlighter ink seeps through to the reverse page of a leaf. The Apocrypha is between the New and Old Testaments so opening the bible in the centre does not find Psalms. Amazon describes one ribbon, but my copy has two claret red ribbons, one over Esther and another over Isaiah, so they are both symmetrical around the centre. The gold paint on the gilded edges do not appear to be thick enough as the fore-edges look whitish when the bible is open.

There is quite a bit of artwork in the earlier pages of this bible. The Title Page art is impressive.
The calendar retains some of the Gothic typeface of the original 1611 KJV. There are 33 pages of illustrated Genealogy in different artistic layouts. This 400th anniversary edition is large enough to have a Map of Canaan over two opposing pages, but the details are hard to make out, since this is not the original 30 pound KJV. The artwork in the Capital Letter block in the beginning of each chapter is really interesting. There are a lot of “A”s, as in “And it came to passe…”, but it is amazing how many artistic variations there are for the capital “A” alone. There can be three different types of artwork for three separate “A”s appearing on the same spread. I estimate that there must be at least 100 different basic block artwork for the letter “A” alone, and I think I see some tiny variations in similar blocks.

The 11 ½ page essay by Gordon Campbell at the end of the text block gives a summary of the history of the KJV including how the Apocrypha got excluded. Very intriguing is Gordon Campbell pointing out that there are thousands of differences between the 1611 KJV and the present day bookshelf KJV. 1611 KJV Matthew 16:16 “thou art Christ” changed to “thou art the Christ”, “the words of Jesus” Matthew 26:75 became “the word (singular) of Jesus”.

Even a comma changed 2 Corinthians 5:2 from “for in this we grone earnestly, desiring to be clothed” to “for in this we grone, earnestly desiring to be clothed”. There were 350 “typo”s, 250 in the text and 100 in the marginal notes. Mostly inconsequential, like Gel: for Gal:, or “plaine” in Leviticus 13:56 which should read “plague”. Gordon Campbell then appends a separate 2-page list of some typos, like “brothe” for “brother” in Matthew 12. He does not go into errors in translation, and wisely too.

I note some comments about this bible being printed in China. Most of the 400th Anniversary ones are printed in China, and they are well done. I see it as a step forward. PRC will never allow politically sensitive material to be printed in China, and I sense that China is realising that persecuting Christians today is becoming a lost communist cause. I once commented that the most attentive listeners of sermons in Church are the government agents. To which a friend retorted, “Hallelujah, at least some in the secret police may still be Saved.” Likewise, at least some in the bible making industry in China may still be Saved.

Book making has long been outsourced, and it is pretty tedious work with low profit margins. Unlike some branded goods, at least the savings on bibles have been passed on to consumers. The similar sized large print Dake KJV (also very large and heavy) is printed in Korea, while the compact Dake is printed in China. As China is getting less competitive, printing is moving to Vietnam and Indonesia. Gordon Campbell was very decent in claiming only a “moral right” to his essay, rather than a copyright.

A bible of “physical splendour” at a bargain price.

2011 Thanksgiving update: I notice that the cover has changed from the dowdy maroon to a more impressive black cover with more stamped embellishments. The old Amazon illustration was just a maroon rectangular blob. They said it was going to be a limited print edition. I suppose it is the classic maroon one is limited. I would never begrudge more of this bible being printed. Apparently the demand is high. For those in the USA entitled to Free Shipping from Amazon, this can be considered a further discount. It exceeds the standard weight and international buyers incur a weight surcharge on this heavy item.

4.0 out of 5 stars The mother of all bibles, October 24, 2010
By Wu Wei

This review is from: King James Bible: 400th Anniversary Edition (Bible Kjv) (Hardcover)
This is a large and HEAVY bible! Also, it is a 1611 KJV bible which means that it is VERY, VERY, VERY different from the ordinary King James bibles. For anyone who wants all of that, that is, anyone who wants a large, heavy 1611 King James bible will be happy with this edition.

Besides being 8.5 X 11 inches in size, this bible is over two inches thick. It has heavy, quality paper, along with a very sturdy and heavy cover, so it is HEAVY. It is uncomfortable to hold in the lap, and it cannot safely be read while opened with one hand. However, the font is large and clear enough that it can be read in bed with a tilting bed stand. Without such a stand, the only real option is to read the bible while it is laying flat on a table. If that is not acceptable, the buyer should consider smaller, lighter 1611 King James bibles instead of this one.

Like any 1611, this is very different from any KJV or modern bible. The spelling is phonetic, and very different from today’s spelling. For example, “been” is spelled “bene” and “do” is spelled as “doe”.

Also some letters are actually “switched” while printing. For example, modern “v” is often printed as “u” and modern “u” is often printed as “v”. So “unto” is spelled “vnto”, “up” as “vp”, “have” as “haue”, and “love” as “loue”. “joy” is spelled “ioy” and “Jesus” is spelled as “Iesus”.

Overall the print quality of this bible is excellent. However 3 of the last pages of the Revelation and one page of the appendix following that have a single dark bar across the bottom. This can make one line of the page harder to read. The paper quality is excellent and the print is consistent and easy to read. The edges of the pages are gilt all the way around

5.0 out of 5 stars I liked it a lot., September 22, 2011
By Denise –

This review is from: Know Your Bible: All 66 Books Explained (VALUE BOOKS) (Mass Market Paperback)
The Bible has over a thousand chapters which is a lot of information to digest. However this book will help you get a quick handle on what’s going on in each of its sixty-six books.

How is the book set up? Well, each of the sixty-six books of the Bible gets is explained in 1-2 pages. On these pages, the book follows an outline that covers seven items:

-the author
-the date when the book was written
-in ten words or less what each book’s key theme is
-details of the key events, people, and messages of that particular book (this is the longest section)
-several key verses from that particular book
-any unique and unusual facts in the book
-and an inspirational or devotional thought for each book

Know that this is a small and short book, but then again, that’s the whole point of it. It is meant to give you a nice, concise synopsis of each book of the Bible – and I felt like it succeeds nicely in doing just that. Other short books I really liked include The Prayer Project: How Each One of Us Can Make The World a Better Place to Live – In a Few Minutes a Day.

Product Description
The #1 Selling Bible in the Kindle Store for 2010.

This book contains the complete old and new testament formatted for easy reading and navigation on the Amazon Kindle. Includes chapter and verse navigation. ASV Version.

This bible is setup to make it very simple to jump to specific books, chapters and verses. At any point in the book you can simply type what you are looking for and use Kindle’s search option to find your text.

For example, if you want to find John 3:16 just type john 316 (you don’t even need the : character) and click search. You will be taken to a hyperlink for John 3:16. Click on it and you are there. In most cases you can find a specific book/chapter/verse within a few seconds.

Because you can search using the book names you are familiar with, you won’t need to remember any search codes like some of the other Kindle based bibles.

Also you can jump from book to book using the Table of Contents. Additionally throughout the book you can click on any [chapter:verse] hyperlink and jump to an index for that chapter.
