Bibles for Children was founded by Ted Hudson in July 1997 to advance the understanding of the Christian Faith through the provision of Children’s Bibles and Bible related materials to children in Primary Schools.
Now, in its nineteenth year, the charity has provided Children’s Bibles to over 425,000 pupils in over 1,700 schools in 125 Local Education Authorities throughout the United Kingdom.
Of the three Bibles given, The Children’s Bible is the one most requested. It has some 300 stories from the Bible, re-told in simple sentences and printed in large type with lively, colourful illustrations on every page. It is an ideal introduction to the Bible for young children and is usually given to pupils in Years 2, 3, 4 and 5. There is a Welsh edition – Beibl Y Plant, and over 8,000 Welsh speaking children have received this edition.
The Rainbow Good News Bible is suitable for Year 6 pupils, (Years 6 & 7 in Scotland and N.Ireland,) and is widely used with young people. Highly approved by all denominations, it is the complete Bible in simple everyday language, with an introduction to each book of the Bible along with colour illustrations, maps, charts and hundreds of line drawings by Anne Vallaton.
The number of children who can freely receive these Bibles to keep is only limited by the willingness of Headteachers to request them and the generosity of supporters of the charity to raise funds.
