Get ready—you’re about to meet familiar Bible characters in a fresh new way. You’ll discover not just what they did, but how they felt on their journeys to become friends of God.

Bible-time friends will jump off the page as you...
  • Stand next to Adam while he stares with wide-eyed wonder at all of God's creation--including Eve!
  • Stride beside David, watching his fear shift into confidence as he reaches into a leather pouch to grab one smooth stone.
  • Wade into the Jordan River with John the Baptist--who keeps peering past the crowd to search for the promised Messiah.
  • Look into the forgiving eyes of Stephen as a furious mob hurls rocks through the air to kill him.
54 first-person accounts immerse you in these faith-building stories--because you'll hear them from the mouths of the real people who lived them.

"I love everything about this story Bible! The artwork is incredible and I love how the stories are told in first person! I want to gift these to my preschoolers for Christmas this year! Excellent!!!!"

"Absolutely love it! Got this Bible so we could read it to my 1-year old nephew! You're never too young to start right? And I guess you're never too old for this story Bible either, because I'm way too excited about the book for a 21 year old! I love how relevant it is to all ages - we can read it to our lil baby now while he looks at the beautiful illustrations but soon he's going to learn to read it himself. And when we he's even older, we could give him the add-on Bible Devotions! Perfect! "

"I love this Story Bible! It doesn't compare to any other Story Bible that I've ever read. It has given my Kids in ministry a wider understanding of each Biblical character, with a fresh approach. The kids felt that the Biblical Characters were talking directly to them, actually one of my Kids read the whole thing in 2 Days! Myself and my Kids Ministry love the Friends with God App! It's fun!"

"The content of the Bible and devotional are excellent. Sadly, the artistic depiction of the female form is so grossly sexualized that it almost makes the books inappropriate for young children. I'm not usually super-sensitive to this kind of thing but when Eve looks like she walked off the pages of an x-rated magazine, it's clearly crossed a line. I bought these for my god-daughters and don't think in good faith that I can give them a Bible that sexualizes women to this extent. Badly done Group!"

"The premise of the bible is awesome, but I can't get behind an European depiction of the bible. The characters don't look Middle Eastern, on the contrary David looks Irish. We have a diverse group of kids in our program and I can't give them yet another depiction of God's people as all only white people. "
