“One of our interns for our 10-week summer sports camp said this about the new kids Spark Bible: 'It is out of this universe the best Bible for kids!' The Spark Bible communicates well. It has a fun approach, yet tells the story clearly.”
Brent , pastor, Illinois
“The stories keep kids’ attention spans in mind and everyone can sit through them. The language is great and the kids can see themselves in the stories. They've been able to connect the parts. Spark has equipped families for reading the Bible together.”
Danielle , North Carolina
