First came The Beginner's Bible in 1989 that sold more than 2.5 million copies, also illustrated by Dennas Davis. It was a break through for children with illustrations and fast paced text. Now, The Praise Bible, also illustrated by Dennas Davis, combines a fun illustration style taking kids into the 21st century, with fast paced and biblically accurate story text.
The part we like best, is how each story is summarized at the end in a contemporary scene, that applies the truth of the story in a way that children understand. And, it helps children have a positive attitude about the Bible, since each story is up-beat and ends with a focus on thankfulness to God.
Anyone who opens up The Praise Bible to the story about "The Seed and the Soil" will immediatly see how the illustrator is able to teach the story so well with his fantastic art work - and then when the art is combined with the story - it truly is a master piece.
I highly recommend it for children from ages 3 to 7, and believe it is also simple enough for even college professors to understand!

This is my 7-year olds indispensable Scriptures. He loves it. Your child will too. The bright, vibrant artwork of Dennas Davis coupled with Mack's retelling of favorite Bible stories is wonderful. For children raised on VeggieTales and Nickleodeon, this is their Bible!

I don't hate this book, because I have one that I used to read to my children, and they enjoyed me reading it to them. I wanted to give this book as a present and I'm upset that the outside cover is dirty. It has a thrift shop sticker on it and presentation page has already been filled in. I'm not sure now if it is suitable to give as a gift.
The positive rating was 96 I think, that was definitely too high. I would never buy a used book for a present again.
