This book is simply delightful. It tells the whole story of the Bible in a very overview format, in ten fairly short chapters. As an adult, I sat down and read the entire book in about a half hour.
It was laugh-out-loud funny at points.
The illustrations, by Don Clark, are phenomenal.
From the publisher:
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.This book is fun, and it really does do what it claims -- it connects the dots from Adam and Eve through Christ and the resurrection, and then back to the garden of the new heaven and earth.
I didn't think it could pull it off. It did.
And there is just so much to look at in the illustrations.
I have a copy to give away! US and Canada only, please.
