101 Favorite Stories from the Bible features two page spreads of well known Bible stories. For each story the first page features the basic lesson with scripture references. The facing page includes a fairly classy picture with related Bible verse, and three questions for children. The 105 stories included are fairly evenly split between Old and New Testament. The selection of stories is well-balanced and includes some less well-known stories like The Four Lepers and Jehoshaphat’s Singing Army. It doesn’t shy away from difficult or more violent stories like the drowning of the Egyptians in the Red Sea, the story of Cain and Abel, and the cleansing of the temple by Jesus. The stories of more sexual nature such as Lot, Joseph and Potiphar’s wife, and David and Bathsheba are not included, or are only briefly and carefully mentioned.
We think this is a good and solid choice for 4-7 year olds.
