You can buy your CDs with accompanying books, posters, t-shirts and all kinds of other merchandise. This offering comes - I kid you not - with 'Bible-based bedsets, T-shirts and briefs'. Truth In Action produce a range of quilt covers and pillow cases for children, decorated with images of Bible heroes and smiley characters, and with your set of biblical bedding (not the corner of Boaz's garment that Ruth slept under, alas!), you can obtain a specially created CD featuring songs, prayers and a Bible story about the character depicted thereon. This CD draws together several of those stories and songs in just over an hour's worth of music and narrative. It's all very natural. No glossy production. No great backing groups. No enormous children's choirs. Just a very natural set of stories - Daniel, Ruth, Esther, Jehoshaphat - well written and clearly read, with a low-key set of sound effects and musical backgrounds, and a set of jolly songs which complement the stories really well - "The Lions' Lunch", "Harvest Of Joy", "Sword Of The Lord". It's all done very gently and ably by Jane and Matt Jackson (with a bit of vocal help from Melody Reeves) and almost made me want a Daniel quilt cover (but I suspect they don't do king-size). The only drawback is that some of the stories are a trifle long, but they're engaging nonetheless. Just the job for pre-schoolers and Key Stage One children.
