An old favorite...

This was one of my favorite books as a child so one afternoon while staying with my brother  I spotted it on his shelf and decided to take a trip down memory lane and read through it again. It's basically an abridged version of the original book. As far as I can tell they don't leave out any parts of the story, but it's written in a more modern and easy to read English, and about half of every page is a picture illustrating what's happening. My only objection is that there are a couple pictures of Jesus, but you could cover those like my family did. Otherwise I think it's a great read for children who might find the older English hard to follow.

I grew up loving allegories such as Pilgrim's Progress, or The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, and really do still like that sort of thing as you can see by how much I've shared from Hinds Feet on High Places. Someday, Lord willing, I'd like to read them with my own children. Books like these are encouraging and helpful to me...but I appreciate any book that encourage me to, "run with patience the race that is set before us."

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
