Reading the Bible

About a month ago Martin said he wanted to read the Bible. He took a look at a copy we have and decided that the full version was not for him. So I looked into more the storybook kind of style. Many we found were too simple but finally we found the http://www.amazon.com/International-Childrens-Bible-Word-Publishing/dp/0849932866/ref=pd_ecc_rvi_1/002-1911654-1252830?ie=UTF8&qid=1178578638&sr=1-14 It's great. Even Thor loving Katherine poked her head around the door and listened last night. Sarah and Lisa wanted to read the real thing, but are finding the International Children's Bible to be helpful for those parts they don't understand.
We aren't Christians (despite what many people think) but knowing about different religions has always been something we think is important. Reading the Bible is so far proving very interesting so we shall continue.

I love learning about various religions--it's amazing how much they have in common, especially when the difference are all that seem to be the focus for most people.
