My son has recently really got into bible stories and the only book we have is the Lion bible which is a bit short on detail.

Does anyone know of a book for a 7 year old that has a good narrative and great pictures?

These are a couple of good ones by Bob Hartman (published by Lion):

Angels, angels all around and Bible Baddies

Ooh I like the bible baddies one!

Oh, these look great roisin. Ds ostentiously read Fievel Goes West all the way through the sermon this morning, as we forgot his DK Bible Stories and all the church had was board books...

We all had to go to a fairly adult Pentecost service this afternoon (dh was preaching and I was playing).
Ds2 piously read his new bible all the way through the service ... LOL
Ds1 read "Molly Moon's incredible book of hypnotism" !!! ... ROFL!

The M&S one is good. Good balance between pictures and narrative, but all my kids want is "the man who had his hair cut off" Samson

I've got the Nick Butterworth book edie. Have you got it? I'd say it's aimed at 3-5 yr olds. Great pictures though!

Which Lion one have you got btw? The Lion children's bible, or the Lion Storyteller Bible That's quite nice if you haven't got it, great for reading aloud. But not a great deal of detail.

Ds loved this one, the Lion Graphic Bible.

He read it when 8 I think and was v proud to have read the Bible all the way through

It's basically the Bible told in comic strips - really good, exciting graphics. There are other graphic versions available now from Lion, also on Amazon.

another vote for the M&S one.It has a nice ribbon to tie it up as well!

The Lion Storyteller Bible is our current favourite. And the Butterworth book is great too. But we're dealing with a 4 year old here.

Ds has the Lion one, dd a matching set of Bible and Prayers from M & S. Ds also has some of the paperback extracts from the very big Dorling Kindersley Bible.
We also like Marcia Williams' strip cartoon Bible stories - I had a look at the link to the Lion Graphic Bible and think ds at five is too young for this as yet, although I am sure he would disagree. I hope it is back in print by the time he is eight or so.

God says 'Go!'
Brian Ogden
Ten read-aloud tales from the Old and New Testaments, full of lively characters and exciting stories. Children will find out that when God spoke to people in the Bible, amazing things were bound to happen! Each chapter includes an activity to help get to grips with the story. Age range 5-7

10 Rulz
Andrew Bianchi and Andy Gray
Children sometimes struggle to be excited by the Bible. This book will help them understand the Ten Commandments by looking at various characters in the Bible who struggled to keep them. Using lively illustrations and cartoons throughout, this is a fun way to teach children about God's word. Age range 8-11

God Made Snot!
Matt Campbell
A unique approach to learning about God and all that he has created! Why did God make us like he did? Was Jesus really as human as we are? A great book for older children and on their level (especially boys!) that they will want to share with all their friends. Age range 8-11
