Sally Lloyd-Jones has written the best ever Bible story book for children on the market! Well that's my opinion and I think the sales reflect it! The Jesus Storybook Bible just passed the 1,000,000 copies sold mark!
I drove down to Greenwich, CT this week where I had the pleasure of meeting Sally Lloyd-Jones and heard her speak on 'Communicating Grace Through Story,'
Her 10 big ideas - A story...
• works secretly in silence
• leaves room for mystery
• takes children seriously
• does not dumb down
• uses rich language
• tells the truth - takes fears seriously
• not necessarily real but contains truth
• opens the door to hope
• does not argue
• is a performance
Her talk was rich - peppered with stories, experiences, wisdom and readings from her books.
