The Candle Classic Bible Review

I am participating in another Kregel Publications Blog Tour by reviewing The Candle Classic Bible.  This is a christian bible that is retold into 365 stories.  Just the right size for one story a day for little ones.  The book cover and many pictures within have a vintage type of style to it.  I like it instead of the big brightly colored ones for young children.  I would think it would capture a child's imagination and bring them into the story. My son is a bit older and he read through a number of the pages and said "it lacked details" but considering it's geared for younger children, that was done intentionally.  It's written in an easy to read format that can be read in many sessions or for older children, they can focus on multiple stories in one sitting.  I do appreciate the titles before each story with the referenced scripture. I can see this story bible being used in homes as well as in an elementary classroom.  This bible is not appropriate for memorizing scripture but definitely for learning the morals, lessons and stories within it.  I believe it's a good place to start for teaching children about God and their faith.

I was given a complimentary copy from Kregel for my honest review.

Peace & Blessings,


  1. Great review, Noreen. Did you find any stories that you felt you needed clarification from a Catholic-perspective? Just curious. That wouldn't necessarily sway me away from purchasing. Hope all is going well!

  2. Nice! Good to know!

    Hope things are goo, Noreen! Be well and have a great day!

  3. Noreen, how would you rate this book compared to the previous children's bible you reviewed? I am interested in purchasing one for our son (almost 2) but am a bit overwhelmed by all the options out there.
