I'm a zen buddhist but want to teach my girls about Christianity -- for many reasons: I was raised as one and really value the teachings. Their extended family is Episcopalian. They actually are baptized. I want them to feel open to practice what spirituality is best.
I bought them Rabbit Ears Bible Stories ... and they were all so violent. My four-year old couldn't get over the river of blood in the Moses stories ... and the slaughtering of the lambs ... I had forgotten how dark things were back in the Old Testament.
Are there any good Bible stories books that you all like? I'd particularily love to share the teachings and life of Christ ... (yes, I know, lots of violence there at the end ...).
Looking forward to any ideas ...
