Bible Story Songs Review






Bible StorySongs is a company that has music to teach your children about the Bible and Bible characters. The CD I reviewed was called The Bible. It contains 32 songs about Gods' Word and is one hour long. That's a lot of music! My two year old absolutely loves the music. Every time we get into the car, she asks me to put it on. This is a great way to bring Bible stories and truths into your home and the earlier the better.

The music is very calming, which I appreciate, when so many other children's CDs that are out today are chaotic and difficult for the parent to listen to over and over. There's some good content in these songs and I believe they can really show a child what the Bible is about and why it's important to us.

There were a couple of things I wish had been different about the CD. I found it difficult to understand some of the words on a few of the songs that were done in a round. Also on another song that teaches the books of the Bible, it was a little difficult to follow because there really wasn't much of a pause between the books being said and I'm not sure a child could learn them easily. They all just seemed to run together. It was especially difficult to understand during the not so familiar books. However, the lyrics are included and you can look them up and figure out what is being said and teach those few songs to your children if necessary. Once they understand the words, they would have no problem singing along.

Despite those few things, there were a lot of good songs on the CD and all in all I'd say we've enjoyed it and will continue to listen to it. Any music that is wholesome and tries to teach my children about the Lord is a plus with me.

One thing to note, there are a couple songs that quote scripture and are not true KJV. They have been modified to fit into the song. This may bother some people and I thought it worth mentioning. One example is a song that uses the scripture Colossians 3:16, "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."

The lyrics to the song are,
"Let the word of Christ dwell,
Let it dwell in you.
Richly in all wisdom,
With psalms and hymns and songs,
Teaching one another,
Singing them with grace
In your hearts unto the Lord,
Colossians 3:16."
Others songs that refer to scripture are giving a general idea of what the scripture is about and not quotes.

CD's are $9.99 each.
