Disappointed with theological inaccuracies and tone We were excited to receive a copy of this book as a gift as I had read and heard rave reviews from numerous places and people I trust. We read through it cover to cover on a nightly basis (1 story a night) with our 2.5 year old and we will not be reading it again. I wanted to write a review here because I wish I had known more about the book before we read it, so I’m hoping this review will help others get a balanced perspective.I want to preface this by saying that much of the Jesus Storybook Bible is very well done.

Noah’s ark is shown balancing precariously on the pinnacle of the mountain, as well as being that silly shape that it is often drawn – nothing like the proportions given in the bible.
