Soft, glowing watercolor illustrations help to bring a full range of Old and New Testament stories to life, making this an inspiring and powerful introduction to overarching Christian themes—God's faithfulness to his people and the promise of Christ for all of humanity. Readers can also discover insight into the people and places of the Bible through family trees, a glossary, and maps of the Holy Land.

The Discovery Illustrated Family Bible makes a perfect gift for children and will be a source of joy for the whole family. The book has a durable hardcover with a presentation page and ribbon marker.

The stories are warmly retold by Christian Maclean and vividly depicted through 58 full-page illustrations by artist David Newbatt.

“An inexpensive precious jewel.... David Newbatt, who has brought his skill of creating a mood in our soul with his pictures to illustrating the contents throughout. Christian Maclean who spent much time on retelling the stories, true to their essence, and for weaving them together so masterfully, written in such a way that you want to read on to find out how life carries on. This book is a wonderful gift.”
