Come to God's peace table, where there's room for everyone.

From beginning to end, the Bible reminds us that we are made in God's image and that God's table has room for us all. The Peace Table is a comprehensive family storybook Bible that makes God's presence and peace real to children of all ages.

In these pages, readers young and old will encounter biblically faithful retellings of 140 stories from Scripture. Stunning artwork from 30 illustrators invites children to see themselves reflected in God's story. Woven alongside each Bible story are prayer prompts, questions, and action ideas to guide family reflection and conversation. Twelve "peace paths" encourage children to explore the ways that peace themes are woven throughout the Old and New Testaments. A resource section includes ideas for how to experience peace with God, self, others, and creation, as well as maps, background information on the Bible, interactive ways to pray, and prayers for many occasions.

The Peace Table is an excellent resource for families and faith communities who want their children to love Jesus, grow in faith, and become peacemakers who change the world
