    Good afternoon. I wanted to share a new publication with you all. We have translated a children's Bible stories book from Dutch. We had Bartel Elshout do the translation work. He was the gentleman that translated Brakel's "Christian's Reasonable Service." It is titled "Follow Me: Bible Stories for Young Children." There are no Second Commandment violations. Here are a few photos.

    I'm very interested! It's hard to find stories for children that a) don't have horrifically terrible illustrations (looking at you Banner of Truth Vos books) and b) don't try to place Kenny Loggins in biblical times.

    Oh, wait. Kenny Loggins isn't the route to go for Bible characters? :doh::D

    1. How does it handle nativity?

    2. How does it handle the HS descending like a dove?

    It is an empty manger. I have attached the image. There are no photos of Christ's baptism.

    I may purchase a couple copies and will spread the word.:detective:

    Who knew it was ACTUALLY possible to make a kids story bible without images of the Godhead.

    Can you add clarity to this buying option from the website?

    Very interested, thanks!

    Very 70s, for sure (although I kind of like them)

    Clearly, since photography was not invented until the 1800s.

    Is that right? I should probably try to return my autographed Apostle Paul photo. It is him with his King James. The man assured me it was authentic.

    I heard about Paul using a KJV! I guess it didn’t have the illustrations in the back of his travels yet though :scratch:

    I've been looking for a book like this for years. Nearly every book of Bible stories for children includes violations of the Second Commandment.

    There were violations in the Dutch version. We removed them and had the illustrator redo the artwork on those particular images. We are really strict on such things. Any review copies from publishers I receive that are in violation, I do not pass along to Dr. Beeke.
