Summary

Hurlbut's Story of the Bible has its roots in the old custom of parents telling their children stories from the Bible. One of those parents who kept this custom particularly alive and meaningful was Dr. Jess Lyman Hurlbut. Like many great works of literature, the stories that make up this book were told and retold innumerable times before being set down on paper.

Any additional comments?

I bought this book so I could teach my daughter. It is'nt really for small children. I would suggest older teenagers. I found interesting for myself even as it Tells the bible from the old testament very clearly from the beginning and I got a better overview. It would be very good for someone wishing to learn about the bible from the beginning or someone who had'nt read it at all. A good introduction easily understood which would help someone understand the whole bibical story. Though earlier stories ok, but it gets more difficult as you go on, therefore I would only recommend to older children or teenagers. Even adults who want something not heavy to absorb. Like me!

Excellent Bible stories!

These stories are faitful for the original stories in the Bible. Even the difficult ones have been included but explained in the way that children can understand them correctly (e.g. why some people in old testament times had to lose their life after doing wrong). This is a great tool for refreshing Bible knowledge even for adults. Pleasanty read.

Good Rendition

A very good rendition of classical biblical text. We have a long drive to church every sunday, and this audio (which I have burned onto discs) has been a great way to keep the kids entertained and learning bible stories at the same time. It hasn't been 'dumbed-down', but is very accurate story telling (even in some of those harsh old-testament stories. yikes!). The whole family enjoys this audio.

Excellent investment

I burned this book onto something like 18 CD's, which my kids (7 and 9) listen to at bed time and in the car. I had bought a couple of other CD and tape collections for the same purpose, but none compared to this. Every single story you can think of is in this(and a bunch of stories you've probably never heard.) The stories are accurate and yet simple enough for elementary aged children on up. I enjoy listening to them and have learned a great deal. This is the best purchase I've made through Audible.
