The Biggest Story was seriously one of the most brilliantly beautiful books I’ve ever seen! It is stunning! It is filled with bright colors, beautiful pictures, sturdy pages. Not too many words on each page, so it will hold the attention of even the smallest listener. Definitely going to be a great addition to our growing collection of awesome books.
A Look Inside
This is a beautifully written story bible. It is broken up into 10 chapters from Adam and Eve to the story of Jesus. The Author takes you on an exciting journey from the garden to the cross and resurrection in a new and exciting way. It is filled with really interesting pictures all throughout.
This is a page turner for sure. I read it to my kids everyday and everyday they would sigh when I said reading time was up, “But Mom, just a few more pages please?” They loved it and I so did I. It is a perfect blend of the overall goal of God’s plan for our redemption from old testament to new.
Each part of this story is short, sweet and to the point. Easily getting the gist of it all for my kids. My older girls love that they know the story and love hearing it in a new way. My youngest daughter is having fun learning what happened in a not-so-overwhelming way. Oh and the illustrations are amazing. They have pages with gorgeous pictures and no words at all.
What About Scripture?
Yes of course in a book like this there are a lot of things missing, but the point of this type of book (bible story) is to retell a story in a way that children will understand it and accept it. It is not meant to be word for word what the bible says. They obviously need complete scripture reading besides this, but I think it is a great tool to pull out the key points and help kids understand the big picture of Jesus the snake crusher!
If you are like me you start your little ones out with bible stories and easy scriptures anyway. This just ties it all into one big story which is the ultimate story and point of the bible and why Jesus was born, crucified and resurrected. The ultimate sacrifice- The Biggest Story – (Jesus) How the snake crusher brings us back to the garden!
Help Your Kids Understand the Big Story of the Bible
The Bible is loaded with a lot of exciting stories. But kids need to know how all those classic stories connect to Scripture’s overarching message about God’s glorious plan to redeem his rebellious people.
In The Biggest Story: How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden, Kevin DeYoung—a best-selling author and father of six—leads kids and parents alike on an exciting journey through the Bible, connecting the dots from the garden of Eden to Christ’s death on the cross to the new heaven and new earth.
With powerful illustrations by award-winning artist Don Clark, this imaginative retelling of the Bible’s core message—how the Snake Crusher brings us back to the garden—will draw children into the biblical story, teaching them that God’s promises are even bigger and better than we think.
