However, the publisher has not neglected to add text. Beneath each illustration is a quote from scripture that pertains to the story that is depicted above. Then, as the child gets older, the full story behind each picture is provided. For the New Testament books, the text is taken directly from scripture. Sometimes this required paraphrasing portions in order to fit the full story. The vocabulary and syntax is smoothed in a few places, only where necessary to make it understandable for younger ears; otherwise the power of the original text is allowed to shine through.
For the Old Testament books, the original scripture passages were usually far too long, so they are rewritten in language that fit with the others; however, quotes and phraseology from scripture are included where possible. Many of these Old Testament stories include prefigurements of Christ, so this is woven into the text, mentioning how these characters tell us something about Jesus.
