Pre-Release Book Review-The Story of God's Love For You By: Sally Lloyd Jones



The Story of God’s Love for You
By:  Sally Lloyd Jones
Publisher:  Zondervan

From Inside the dust jacket:

 Every story whispers his name…
“It’s an adventure story about a young Hero who comes from a far country to win back his lost treasure.  It’s a love story about a brave Prince who leaves his palace, his throne—everything—to rescue the one he loves.  It’s the most wonderful of fairy tales that has ever come true in real life!  You see, the best thing about this Story—it’s true

At the center of the Story, there is a baby.  The Child upon whom everything would depend.”
--from The Story of God’s Love for You*
*text originally published as “The Jesus Storybook Bible”

Wow, Wow, Wow!  Can you tell I’m blown away by this wonderful little book?  I know it says it is from “The Jesus Storybook Bible”, but believe me this is a book for adults/young adults…just about any age from 15 years and up.   MS Lloyd Jones has been a favorite children’s author of mine for a long while now, but this book has truly spoken to my heart!  She has taken the wonderful stories of the Bible and put them in the simplest language that makes it easy for the novice Christian to understand and is a refresher lesson for the seasoned Christian.  I am so impressed with this little book; I am planning to turn it into a daily devotion.  MS Lloyd lists the scripture at the beginning of each story making it easy to follow along in the Bible and then tells the story in such a refreshing way!  Young, old, new Christian or one that is seeking God…this book will capture your heart and restore your spirit.  This would be an excellent book to read each night for family devotions before bedtime.  As I was reading this book, I wanted to share it with so many of my friends, so I am sure it will find its way into a gift-bag for a birthday or just a gift to say…I’m thinking of you…but more importantly…remember God loves you!

Thank you MS Lloyd Jones for such a wonderful book!

Disclosure: I was given a copy of this Book by the publisher, Zondervan, Z Blog Squad for an honest review.   I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
