Hi. Great Bible Stories is a site created by me, Steve Harris. As well as being the husband of one great wife (who thinks I spend too much time playing with web sites) and the father of grown up children (who definately spend too much time playing on web sites!) I am a church minister working for an evangelical Church in Cardiff, Wales called the City Temple and for Evangelical Alliance in Wales on project called The Net Cardiff.
For over 25 years I have been doing assemblies in about 30 different local primary schools, speaking to about 5,000 children every school term. I also have many friends across the UK who do similar work in schools and churches.
I thought it would be great to use the internet to get some of the stuff we do in local schools to a wider audience and that is why this site was created. At the same time we have included some fun stuff for you to do and play.
An number of our stories have been written by Paul Dallgas-Frey who has kindly given us permission to use them on this site
Paul Dallgas-Frey and his wife Danette live in Dixon, Illinois with their 5 adopted children from Colombia, South America. He started writing Bible stories for his children “in order to make passages from a big thick Bible a little more understandable for five squirming kids.” He has also been a youth minister. He is currently recovering from a bone marrow transplant, which he credits for saving his life from multiple myeloma. In the years since the surgery, he has found what a joy it is to let others know how good and wonderful our God is. His web site is www.BibleStoryGuy.com.
This is a Bible based Christian web site. We believe that the Bible is still the most important book ever written. We trust that you and your children will get to know Jesus better, the most important character in the Bible.
All those who have contributed to this site believe that Jesus is not just an amazing man but that he is the Son of God. Through Jesus, God has made himself known to us and through His death and resurrection, God has made the way for us to have a living relationship with Himself. To check out what that means, you could take a look at the web site called www.looking4god.org
Jesus' words were the most amazing ever spoken. His miracles changed lives and His death and resurrection are the most important events that have ever happened! As well as changing history, His love continues to change lives across the whole world.
