”This Children's Bible Reader handsomely brings to life the central stories of the Old Testament and the New Testament and makes them accessible to children.
Translated from the Greek Bible Society's acclaimed work, this English edition with its easy-to-understand text and excellent iconographic illustrations will certainly illumine the hearts and minds of our children and strengthen their faith as they read these inspiring stories from our sacred scriptures.
It is my warm prayer that the Children's Bible Reader will find its way into every Orthodox parish and every home with children. It will be a very valuable resource for families, parents, children, and catechetical schools, inspiring and edifying all who read from it."
-His Eminence Archbishop DEMETRIOS of America
This volume includes more than 150 stories from the Old and New Testament.

The Children’s Bible Reader has now been published in eight languages.
