5.0 out of 5 stars The Bible March 3, 2013
By Mario
Format:DVD
I was waiting for a network to “man up” and do a series on The Holy Bible and not just be politically correct and afraid to talk about God, and finally the History Channel made it possible. Discovery, National Geographic, AMC, etc. Did not want to take that risk. Let me say that it was a profitable risk. This series so far has been amazing and almost 100% accurate as The Bible. The battle scenes are well done but might be too graphic for young children. There is also some scenes of sensuality, but nothing compared to other shows on TV.The show begins with Noah and the Ark and then follows through with Abraham and his tribe. After that it moves on to Moses and the Israelites and how God freed them from slavery. I truly cannot wait to watch more episodes of this series and I as a believer recommend this to all people, believers and non-believers alike. It might save your life, it might save your soul. Overall an amazing interpretation of th Holy Book  Click Here to See More Reviews!

Book Description
Publication Date: February 22, 2012
You are invited to a one-of-a- kind reading experience. Enjoy a thrilling novel and a biblical commentary ripped from today’s headlines at the same time. Revelation Road combines two books into one. The modern world has been thrust into chaos and uncertainty. Iran’s nuclear threat; the burgeoning Arab Spring; the toppling of long-ruling Mideast despots and the power vacuum left in the wake; Israel’s security under attack from hostile powers abroad and wavering support from America. Modern dangers? Yes, but calamities foretold in the Bible thousands of years ago. Revelation Road explains the events occurring on our darkening horizon and their Biblical significance.

George and Mimi Thompson believe their grandson Tyler lives in the final generation. Lovingly, they prepare the lad for life after the destruction of Damascus, the strategic strike of Iran’s nuclear sites, the final Arab-Israeli war, nuclear terrorism in America, and the coming world religion and global government. Experience the End Times through the eyes of the Thompson family, and discover how their gripping story uncovers the silver lining of hope against the backdrop of global gloom and doom… Their family tale could soon become your reality!

Bill Salus is the author of Isralestine; The Ancient Blueprints of the Future Middle East. His timely book featuring the coming Arab-Israeli War of Psalm 83 became the premier work on the subject, and earned him respect among many of today’s top eschatologists. In addition to being an author, researcher, and lecturer, Bill is also the radio host of the popular Prophecy Update Radio Program, and is frequently interviewed on numerous notable radio programs, and television shows.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ! January 14, 2012
By Lynn E. Wheeler
Format:PaperbackI read Bill Salus’ first book, Isralistine, and Revelation Road is the perfect follow up book. It combines a touching story line of end time events with real Bible commentary. For those who have questions regarding near future events in the Middle-east, this book has the answers. It also places real life situations and relationships into perspective as these events unfold. The unique thing about this book is that it is really 2 books in one. A novel and a Bible commentary. The novel is full of intrigue and suspense and the commentary is well thought out and Biblically based and easy to read. Thank you Bill Salus for giving us this book. I look forward to reading your next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique way to study End Times Prophecies January 12, 2012
By M. Beardsley
Format:PaperbackI was honored to get the pre-publish manuscript to this book. If you have had a chance to read “Isralestine” Bill’s first book, and found it interesting, you will find this one equally interesting and informative. Bill uses a combination of a pseudo-fictional novel – main characters are fictional but many other characters, some events and the scripture quoted are real; combine with a pretty in-depth study of those scriptures mentioned in the novel part of the book. It is a great way of allowing folks to see how scriptures that are sometimes hard to grasp, such as End Times prophecies, might come to fulfillment in real world ways, based on current events. It also gives the reader a quick view of how many eschatologist view world events through prophecy.

The First part of the book is the fictional novel, then the 2nd half of the book is the commentary part that examines the scriptures referred to in that particular chapter of the novel. I found the novel part riveting and the commentary part very well done and does a great job of examining the scriptures in the given Chapter. Each Chapter in the novel part has associated chapter(s) in the Commentary part of the book. If you are a student of Bible Prophecy, this is a must have, in my humble opinion. If you are NOT a student of End Times Prophecies, you need to check this book out, as I think you will find it very helpful in understanding current events from a Biblical point of view. I really think regardless of how versed you are in eschatology(study of End Times Prophecies), you will find a great deal of enjoyment in the novel part of the book, as well as find the commentary very informative. I am looking forward to the 2nd volumne in this series! If you are a student of Eschatology and don’t have a copy of Bill’s first book, “Isralestine: Ancient Blueprints to a Future Middle East”, that too is a must have for your library!

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

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
