Publisher's Summary

Hurlbut's Story of the Bible has its roots in the old custom of parents telling their children stories from scripture. One of those parents who kept this custom particularly alive and meaningful was Dr. Jesse Lyman Hurlbut. Like many great works of literature, the stories that make up this book were told and retold innumerable times before being set down on paper.

Good Rendition

A very good rendition of classical biblical text. We have a long drive to church every sunday, and this audio (which I have burned onto discs) has been a great way to keep the kids entertained and learning bible stories at the same time. It hasn't been 'dumbed-down', but is very accurate story telling (even in some of those harsh old-testament stories. yikes!). The whole family enjoys this audio.

Excellent investment

I burned this book onto something like 18 CD's, which my kids (7 and 9) listen to at bed time and in the car. I had bought a couple of other CD and tape collections for the same purpose, but none compared to this. Every single story you can think of is in this(and a bunch of stories you've probably never heard.) The stories are accurate and yet simple enough for elementary aged children on up. I enjoy listening to them and have learned a great deal. This is the best purchase I've made through Audible.
