A Bible story for every day—365 of the best-loved Bible stories fully illustrated in a classic style will become favorites for children and parents alike, with each story divided into easy-to-read sections with the day, heading, and Scripture reference. Children are encouraged to spend family time together reading a new story each day.

Old Testament: From the Story of Creation to Isaac, from Joseph to Ruth, from Job to David, from Elisha to the Prophets.

New Testament: From John the Baptist to the story of Jesus, to the story of the Apostles, to John’s Vision of Heaven.

My take on this book:
"The Candle Classic Bible" is filled with 365 stories taken straight from the Bible told in such a way that brings to life the characters and stories from the Bible. The first thing that I noticed was the easy to use table of contents. For me I rarely read a book like this cover to cover instead I always like to read my favorite characters first and the table of contents makes navigating the book a breeze because it uses bold letters to highlight different subjects. Each story opens with the Title and then the scripture verse in which the story comes from. The illustrations that are found on each page really bring the stories to life. While this book is geared toward younger readers age 8-10 it will appeal to young and old alike. With 365 stories the reader will get a wonderful overview of the Bible. Easy enough for young readers but also interesting enough that it really held my attention. I think this book would make a great gift. A wonderful book to immerse your youngsters in the word of God, one that would work well as a teaching tool in Sunday School lessons or even home school. 

A complimentary copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review.
