Candle Bedtime Bible – Book Review

Are you looking for a great book of bedtime stories to read to your children?

Would you like to share the Bible stories that you’re reading during your daily devotional time with your child?

If so, Karen Williamson has created the perfect solution!

In her book, Candle Bedtime Bible, she has written 40 three, five and ten-minute Bible stories to read aloud to your children right before bed each night!

When you look in the Contents, you will see a color-coded clock that tells you how long each story is so you can select the story according to your schedule.

The stories feature a selection of Bible classics from both the Old and New Testament, starting “At The Very Beginning” with the Creation story and ending when “Jesus Returns To His Father.” The stories span several pages and feature the charming illustrations of Christine Tappin. As your children learn how to read, they will be able to grow into this book and read the stories for themselves.

One thing I particularly like about the Candle Bedtime Bible is that, at the end of each story, Karen provides the actual Bible reference for your convenience.

Here’s a peek inside so that you can get a feel for what this book is like. The first story – At The Very Beginning – retells the story of Genesis and spans four pages (the first two are shown here). At the top of the page, in the yellow circle, you will see the Number 3, which indicates it is a 3-minute story:

Candle Bedtime Bible is a book that you and your children will love. This hardcover book makes a great addition to your family’s library and is appropriate for gift-giving!

  1. This looks like an excellent children’s Bible. The one I have is rather cumbersome and disturbing in some parts. (She’s three, I want to expose her to Christian culture, not scare her to death :)) I’ll definitely check this one out. Thanks for linking up!
