For over fifty years, Arch Books have illustrated our favorite Bible stories, and now Concordia Publishing House has released Arch Books Treasury: Vintage Collection, 19661967. This second iteration in the Treasury series brings twelve more classic Arch Books into a single volume.

Arch Books have been used for generations of families, educators, and pastors to teach important truths of the Bible. Each book takes a portion of Scripture and sets its story in rhyme, capturing the imagination of children and bringing the stories of God’s Word to life. The Arch Book series creates an experience true to Scripture that children find accessible and adults can’t help but enjoy. And after fifty years, many of us still fondly recall reading these stories with our parents.

Arch Books Treasury: Vintage Collection, 19661967 includes the following Arch Books:

  • The Great Escape
  • The Boy Who Saved His Family
  • Daniel in the Lions’ Den
  • The House on the Rock
  • The Lame Man Who Walked Again
  • The Secret of the Star
  • The Walls Came Tumbling Down
  • The Man Caught by a Fish
  • Three Men Who Walked in Fire
  • The Boy Who Gave His Lunch Away
  • The Fishermen’s Surprise
  • Mary’s Story

Our first compilation, Arch Books Treasury: Vintage Collection, 1964–1965, can be found here.

In addition to the Treasury, Concordia Publishing House has also released three brand-new Arch Books: Falling into Sin by Martha Jander, The Christmas Connection by Karyn Lukasek, and Hungry Mouths, Hungry Hearts by Heather Kaufman.

The retelling of Genesis 2:15–25 and 3:1–19 in Falling into Sin will teach children that God did not abandon Adam and Eve, despite their sin. He promised to send a Savior, and He did!

The Christmas Connection ties together Luke 2 and Matthew 28 to help children learn the parallels between Christmas and Easter.

Finally, read about the miracle of Jesus feeding five thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fish in the Arch Book Hungry Mouths, Hungry Hearts.
