The Bible is full of adventures - of kings and heroes, of escapes and battles, of journeys, new places and people - of amazing happenings in our world. Above all it is the adventure of people living with God - of failing and starting again, of new beginnings. Adventure Bible Story covers the whole Bible in 30 action-packed books, not only telling the story but including background to many different events in the Bible. The text has been written specially for children, and the panoramic full-colour illustrations on every page bring the adventures to life. Each book is split into short sections, making it ideal for reading in school, at home and at church, and Bible references are included for those who want to look up the original account.
