Are you looking for a good children's bible for the children in your family? We have purchased a few copies of Archbishop Desmond Tutu's highly acclaimed, Children of God Storybook Bible. In it Bishop Tutu retells more than fifty of his favorite Bible stories that emphasize God's desire for all people to love one another and to find peace and forgiveness in their hearts. The stories are illustrated by artists from many cultures to make this a truly global Bible for children. In addition you can download a free audio of Bishop Tutu reading these stories to go along with the text in the bible. Copies are $15.00 and can be purchased after the 10:15 service in the Narthex or contact Sue Legnani (email@example.com) to reserve a copy.
