The Bible Story is the first in a trilogy of books written for Benziger Brothers by the team of Rev. George Johnson, Rev. Jerome Hannan and Sister Mary Dominica--the other two being the well-loved Bible History and The Story of the Church. While these others are respectively intended for the intermediate and upper grades, this little volume seeks to introduce younger students to the “greatest book in all the world.” Using the best pedagogical methods of the time, they sought to center the narrative on the characters themselves, as a way of drawing in the attention of little ones who love stories. And yet to the extent possible, the phraseology of scripture is used. Study questions and suggested activities for learning reinforcement are also provided at the back of the book. Best of all, dozens of beautiful, full-color illustrations help cement the reality and beauty of the message of salvation in the young mind.
