Book Review: The Story of the Bible by Larry Stone

I was asked to review The Story of the Bible by Larry Stone by This beautiful book tells the history of the Bible in an interesting, "story" way that I found interesting and enjoyable. Additionally, it includes quite a few copies/reproductions of historic documents related to the Bible, which makes this a great teaching aid and resource.

I enjoyed this book, and plan to use it at various times and in various ways while homeschooling my children. I think they will especially enjoy the hands-on aspect of the various reproductions included with the book (in vellum sleeves so they can be removed to examine more closely).  One thing that surprised me was how BIG the book is. While it makes it nice for use in teaching, and allows for plenty of beautiful pictures, it makes it awkward to read the actual narrative. This was a challenge for me since it's size made it difficult to read while nursing my daughter, or carry it with me to read in the car, etc.  Still, this is an amazing book, that our family will enjoy and treasure for years to come!
