a little bit of happiness

I will tell you about our trip to Austin (we survived!) but I don't have time again today. So I thought instead that I would leave you a little bit of happiness from The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones.

...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 rescue the one he loves. It's like the most wonderful of fairy tales that has come true in real life!

You see, the best thing about this Story is - it's true.

There are lots of stories in the Bible, but all the stories are telling one Big Story. The Story of how God loves his children and comes to rescue them.

Happy weekend!

Hi Erin

I'm the author of The Jesus Storybook Bible and I came across your blog via a google alert thing and thought I'd stop by and say Hi.

Thanks for quoting from the book--I'm so glad you're enjoying the book. It's God's Wonderful Story--and i'm so honored to have a part in retelling it for children.

Anyway, my best to you and thanks again!


PS Erin, you may be interested to know about some cool resources on my site connected with the book, including audio of me reading the stories, downloadable stories, interviews and reviews--as well as other new children's books (including a brand new ULTIMATE GUIDE TO GRANDPARENTS book and OLD MACNOAH HAD AN ARK)
