The Gospel Project has created a 52-week Bible story devotional for children. I wanted to review the book as a potential birthday gift for my great-nephew, but now that I have seen it he might not get it – I might keep it for myself! Just kidding, I will give it to him, but I have thoroughly enjoyed the book!
When the devotional arrived I was expecting colorful pictures and solid theology in a language children could understand. All of that was delivered, but with so much more! Each devotional provides:
Read It: Scripture references
Watch It: QR code reader that opens a full video story
Pop-Up Pictures: Using a free application the story pictures become 3-D
Christ Connection: Explains how Jesus is there from Genesis to Revelation
Live Big: Life application of the devotional information
Big Picture Questions: Family discussion questions to go beyond the devotional
There is something for every learning style – visual, auditory, or tactile. Your child will be able to interact with the material and have the information reinforced through fun learning activities. The Big Picture Questions provide a great way to involve the whole family in the devotional time.
I can remember when I was a young child we had a book of 365 Bible Stories. I would climb up on a chair to get it down from the closet shelf to read and look at the pictures. I loved to read those Bible stories and become a part of the adventure of Daniel in the lions den or Moses parting the waters. This book will provide those same types of memories for your children. It brings the Bible to life in a way 21st century children can understand and connect through.
I highly recommend the 52-Week Bible Story Devotional written by Anna Sargeant and published by B&H publishing group. After you have used the book I would love to hear about your experiences and how your children use the interactive portions of the devotional.

The children’s devotional is also available through most Christian book stores.
