Children’s Bibles are one of our favorite things in the whole world! We love the different perspectives they give us on the stories of the Bible as well as the one BIG STORY of the Bible! I was recently given the opportunity by Propeller Consulting to take a look at Zonderkidz new The Spirit of God Illustrated Bible.

Summary from Amazon: The Spirit of God Illustrated Bible brings to life more than 40 Bible stories that help readers understand that God’s Spirit has been with us since the beginning of time and continues to be with us today.

This is a special storybook Bible that will appeal to both children and parents alike.
Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
If I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
If I settle on the far side of the sea,
Even there your hand will guide me,
Your right hand will hold me fast.
Psalm 139: 7–10
I really enjoyed the unique perspective shown in this new children’s Bible. It was lovely to see the continuity of how the Holy Spirit has been at work since the very beginning and has never stopped His work!
I loved sharing this Bible with my boys each morning after breakfast. It is such a beautiful thing to start each day with a gentle reminder to be aware of the Holy Spirit and how He is working in us today!
As I mentioned, I am a bit of a collector when it comes to children’s Bibles. This is a really nice addition to our collection! Here are a few others we consider favorites:
