About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

The Whole Bible Story: Everything That Happens in the Bible by William Marty, Troy Schmidt (Abridged by), Heath McPherson (Illustrations)

The Whole Bible Story: Everything That Happens in the Bible

In this young reader's edition of an ongoing seller, Dr. William Marty's retelling of the entire narrative of the Bible is an easy-to-read, chronological account formatted to appeal to a younger audience. Engaging illustrations throughout will enhance young readers' experience as the plot and characters of Scripture come to life in new and exciting ways. 

From Genesis . . .
"In the beginning, God created everything out of nothing."

What do all the Bible stories actually mean?
Will the Bible be too boring for me?
Why is the Bible so long?

Have you ever asked--or been too embarrassed to ask--any of these questions? This young reader's edition of The Whole Bible Story will help you understand what the stories in the Bible are actually all about and how every single one of them fits together to tell one big story about God and his love for people--including you!

Along with the story of the Bible in words you can easily understand, in every chapter you will find great bonus material like exciting illustrations, fun facts and trivia about the Bible stories, simple lists of important characters and places, and easy-to-follow ways to apply the themes to your own life.

After reading The Whole Bible Story, you will understand what's so exciting about the Bible and why God's Word matters to you!

. . . to Revelation
"God has all of history-- past, present, future-- in his hands."


This is a wonderful resource for the young people in your life! Troy Schmidt has edited Dr. William H. Marty's classic book, The Whole Bible Story, into an easy-to-read book that shares 'everything that happens in the Bible'. From Genesis to Revelation, from the Creation to the beginning of the New Testament Church in The Book of Acts....it's all here and it's perfect for young readers. There are nineteen chapters filled with Bible scripture and eye-catching black and white illustrations by Heath McPherson, and each chapter ends with special thoughts and tips to increase understanding.

This is an appealing and enjoyable way to introduce God's Word to your children or grandchildren, and I believe that The Whole Bible Story would also be a wonderful addition to your church library.

I received a copy from Bethany House Publishers. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.
