Just bought this book as an Easter gift for my godson. He recently asked if Jesus was a zombie and thought Martin Luther King Jr. was in the bible. I thought he was in need of some religious instruction!
This book (which has modern pictures and not too much text for an antsy 6 year old to sit through) starts at the beginning and briefly covers the main bible stories. Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Esther, all leading up to Jesus, his death and resurrection. Though simplified, the running theme is God's love and redemption. It's a good introduction to Christianity with extra resources listed on the back page.
