This is a story Bible, not a full text Bible. It features Biblical stories retold in child friendly language. Full text Bibles are much more difficult for a child to read independently. Important to ensuring the Catholic integrity of this Bible as opposed to other story Bibles from non-Catholic sources, this Bible has a Nihil Obstat, and an Imprimature. The Nihil Obstat is a statement by an official censor of the Roman Catholic Church certifying that the book contains nothing contrary to faith or morals. The Imprimatur is official license by the Roman Catholic Church to print a religious book.

Format: A well-constructed quality hardcover Bible, the Illustrated Catholic Children’s Bible is colorfully illustrated from cover to cover. Over 200 dynamic full color illustrations are create a visual context for the stories.

The layout of the stories and illustrations is dynamic. This is not a classic two column page layout with rectangular illustrations. Illustrations frequently fade behind the text and have a non-rectangular appearance. Often an image will span across two pages with the relevant text of the story wrapping around the image. This attention to detail in the layout draws the readers’ eye, page to page. It is literally a page turner as the rear wants to see what happens next.

The illustrations by artist Jose Perez Montero visually bring to life a picture of what is being read. A great complement to the image that forms in our minds eye as we read, his illustrations supplement, inform and inspire our visual faculties and make the stories easier to recall.
