The Just Love Story Bible

The Just Love Story Bible

A groundbreaking, justice-oriented storybook Bible for children and families.

In a bold and inspiring new storybook Bible for children, Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis and Rev. Dr. Shannon Daley-Harris join a long line of sacred storytellers and question-askers. For thousands of years, people have told stories, sung songs, asked hard questions, and shared experiences to learn about God and how to live as God's people. The big message of the Bible is that God loves us and created us to love God and each other, to do justice, and to love kindness. In The Just Love Story Bible, children and families are invited to open their imaginations, take hold of their belovedness, and understand that all people on earth deserve to be loved and to have dignity, equality, and justice.

This isn't a book of answers but an invitation to ask important questions. People have always wondered about the great mysteries and, most important, the great questions of life, such as: How did our world come to be? What is the soul? Is there a source of love that we can't see or touch, but that is real and powerful? Why do people have so many different ideas about God? Why do terrible and unjust things happen? What are the best, most loving, and fairest ways to live with each other? Can we believe in something huge and mysterious and invisible like God and still have questions, doubts, and disagreements? What does it look like to be a follower of Jesus?

Through retellings of thoughtfully selected Bible stories, The Just Love Story Bible presents a way to hear how others have also had questions about God, and the answers they discovered; to have your own ideas and ponder your own experiences; and to keep on wondering.

The Just Love Story Bible includes:

Fifty-two Bible stories: Twenty-six from the Old Testament and twenty-six from the New Testament.

Bold, striking illustrations created by Cheryl "Ras" Thuesday, depicting gorgeous scenes and biblical characters in various shades of brown.

Cultural, religious, and historical context to help kids learn about the experiences of people in ancient times.

Exploration of genre and biblical storytelling styles in words kids can understand.
