Stories From the Field

The Jesus Storybook Bible

My Bulgarian teacher sighed when I pulled out the colorful children’s Bible. She seemed to agree that reading would be useful for me, but envisioned boring hours of listening to horrendous pronunciation and stories that she already knew.
Two days later I was back with the same book and the same grin of excitement. As we started the first story in The Jesus Storybook Bible, something changed… “This isn’t just a book for children!”
My Bulgarian teacher flipped through several pages, skimming them while a slow smile began to appear on her face. She asked me where it came from and wondered how such a colorful and clearly childish book should make her want to read the whole thing RIGHT NOW! And actually, how can I get one of these!?
