This is a new textbook which provides comprehension work on the Lion Children's Bible stories from the Old and New Testament which are required for Section 3 of the Common Entrance syllabus. Each chapter focuses on the key religious ideas to be found in the text. These are then linked to the pupil's own everyday experience of home and school.
