Meet Sally Lloyd-Jones, the most successful Christian author you’ve never heard of

How do you get kids to read one of the world’s oldest books? Ask Sally Lloyd-Jones, whose The Jesus Storybook Bible recently passed the critical mark of 1 million copies sold. The British ex-pat and now proud New Yorker has never married or had children of her own, yet aims to retell the Bible to something that comes alive for young people. One of her editors told her once that there are two types of children’s books authors: the ones who are around children, and the ones who are children inside.

A petite, blonde-haired woman who jogs and photographs for fun at 53 years old, Lloyd-Jones’ energy is contagious. Born in Uganda, Jones spent her first years in Africa.

“You would think my parents might be missionaries. Everyone thinks that’s a much better story,” she said. “My dad was working for Shell.”

She said she was 4 when she became a Christian. ...

So show me where a Bible critic uses a KJV rendering to make his case. I say you'll never find one, at least from one with credentials. Atheists are stupid, but not that stupid. Besides, why would they attack a translation falling into disuse?

They have bigger fish to fry: Higher Criticism, which has little to do with translational issues.

Mike, you've said in the past that you do your Bible Study using several different versions to arrive at the meaning of the text. Which versions do you find that you like for this purpose?

Remember Jim that with the elect "God ordains" eg God ordained the Reformation in the 16th century around the time HE introduced the King James Version. From then onwards man became better educated and better able to read the Scriptures. Your continued problem is the fact God built His church during these four centuries by the KJV, but today the church falls and fails in modern version times. (IE they don't work)
The Holy Spirit "guides" God's disciples into light and truth and thus builds the church. The Holy Spirit will not use heretics to do this.

Hence these apostate times reveal the DECLINE in Holy Spirit works and coincides with modern version usage. Why would God bring a "better" Bible into use this close to the end times and apostasy be the end result? John 16:13.

Strange isn't it God used the King James Version for centuries and ordained it during these centuries to build His Church. And it worked until the recent arrival of modern versions era.

Today in these apostate times when we see the doctrine in churches at an all time low - and the coincidental numerical decline obvious - The Bibles according to Jim Lincoln are more accurate.

Obviously the Lord should have consulted Jim in centuries past and perhaps the church would have been even bigger today and certainly more educated? Not!!

Then of course we have Jim's pet heretics Westcott, Hort, Nestle and Aland who all contributed to his NASB, NIV and all the other modern junk out there.

Yes, Neil, many scholars love the KJV -- atheistic ones, the errors of the KJV are numerous, as has been pointed out, to you and others, Comparing Bible Translations--Conclusions, actually the very long article Comparing Bible Translations should be looked over.

The NIV of 1984 is certainly more accurate than the KJV in spite of its free style How literal or free is the translation?. The KJV, except for the English and for political reasons is not defensible in the rest of the English speaking world, The Truth About KJV Only...Agendas. But the use of the NKJV would be much more suitable than the KJV, especially when teaching children from the Bible.

Asa, a very good point.

Ill refrain from entering the KJV debate. I think it's obvious we differ.

It would help if the woman would read what the Holy Spirit commands women concerning their duties and the order of Christs church. Of course they don't so, today's "church " is apostate mostly!!

Speak for yourself. While the KJV has obvious archaisms & some translation deficiencies, including Dynamic Equivalence like the NIV, it's not as bad as you claim. This is why I avoid your embarrassing, silly debates with KJV jihadists, for you have managed to find the worst possible arguments against it (e.g., Genetic Fallacy, Appeal to Novelty) in spite of there being much better ones (e.g. Double-Standard, Petitio Principii).

It is ironic that many secular, unbelieving humanities scholars have far more respect for the KJV than you do. At least they admit its lasting literary significance, which you despise. I'll take their word for it.

I think you mock the KJV for the same reason you mock Repubs: to spite fanatics.

Well, of course, the KJV isn't a good Bible for adults, let alone children. Comparing Bible Translations--Conclusions. For one thing it isn't in English, Restating the Obvious about Bible Translation

Well, Neil, I agree with your last paragraph, anyway, I will still point out:

1 Corinthians 13
11 When I was a child, I used to speak as a child, think as a child, reason as a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things.
12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I shall know fully just as I also have been fully known.---NASB

While this is an analogy between a new and mature Christian, it is based on the differences between a child and adult. I would say it would be better for a parent or an adult teacher of children's Sunday School class explaining Scripture, then children reading watered-down Bibles that are part of the subject matter of the article.

Notwithstanding our distaste for Dumbed-Down Bibles & other literature (underlying assumption, as with Sunday Schools: children are stupid & can't absorb anything mature), the 1560 Geneva Bible has illustrations in it, including one of Noah's Ark which doesn't look like a bathtub toy & agrees well with modern Creationist drawings.

Anytime someone promotes something as Fun in Christian circles, ask them which verse tells us that one of man's duties before God is to Have Fun.

From the article: The one biblical story she wanted to include but didn’t was the wedding at Cana when Jesus turns water into wine, considered his first miracle. But Zondervan was worried about a story featuring wine. “I just love that the first the Jesus does is party!" Says Lloyd-Jones.

Wow!!!! Stuff like this just annoys me. Jesus wasnt some party animal. All that aside, I find the best children's Bible to be the KJV. I personally tend to avoid water down anything-including Bibles. Of course a child wont understand everything they're read from the KJV but that's expected. I don't know a single man that understands everything in the Bible. Not only that but its our job as parents to come along side our children and teach them.
