The Biggest Story, How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden by Kevin DeYoung and published by Crossway Books.
Once upon a time there lived a man and a woman. They were the happiest people on the planet.
True, they were the only people on the planet, but they were still terrifically happy.
Unfortunately, things didn't stay happy and wonderful for long...
The Bible is full of exciting stories that fill children with awe and wonder. 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, 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.
Great for use in a family or in church.
