Hurlbut's Story of the Bible

Hurlbut's Story of the Bible by Jesse Lyman Hurlbut
By: (1843-1930)

As a parent, many of us would like our children to be familiar with our sacred books, no matter to which religion or faith we belong. However, very young children may find the language and the ideas quite difficult to assimilate. Yet the stories are so memorable and valuable that we want our children to know them as early as possible.

Published in 1905, Hurlbut's Story of The Bible – 1 is a wonderful compilation of some of the most important and delightful stories to be found in both the Old and New Testaments. Beginning with the Creation, it goes on to relate 168 different stories in a style and language most suited for children between the ages of 6 and 12. Parents can also read the tales aloud to younger children or the older ones can read them to their little siblings. The book is also ideal for an informal Bible study class at home or at Sunday School.

The narrative is in sequential form, but each story can be read as an independent one. This is the ideal way to provide early exposure to the Greatest Story Ever Told. The interesting feature about Hurlbut's Story of The Bible is that it omits some of the tales that may be difficult for a young mind to comprehend or for parents to explain to a young child.

Jesse Lyman Hurlbut was an American clergyman who devoted much of his time, skills and effort to Biblical research and making the Bible accessible to young and old alike. Some of his works focus on the geography and history of biblical lands, while others impart knowledge about teacher training in biblical studies. He also lent his expertise to making works like John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress available to younger readers.

A great introduction to The Bible, presented in a simple and enjoyable way!
