“Effective Christian teaching is not a matter of putting forth one curriculum over another; it is a matter of setting forth the Truth in a form that all persons can grasp. The Gospels were written in a way that the Truth can stand on its own, and there is a need to present that Truth to our children by letting them read and understand the Good News for themselves. The Love of Jesus Bible Reader Series is designed and authorized for this purpose. I hope you will utilize it to help you reach these young Christians.“
Maurice M. Benitez, sixth Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas.
