My Review

This is a stunning, gorgeous bible that is suitable for all ages.  Each page is beautifully illustrated and the bible text is presented in easy to understand language suitable for all ages.  There are photographs as well as famous painting depicting the verse as well as the regions where the stories are based.  There is an "Understanding the Story"  section for each story this illustrated book presents.  Excellent bible  for young and old alike.  This beautiful bible is available in February.
