The Bible is full of exciting and interesting stories that give us something to think about and maybe apply to our daily lives, but sometimes children don't quite understand nor are they able to connect those stories to God's plan and their lives. As a child, I was never able to understand therefore, didn't have much interest in reading the Bible. It all seemed so complicated.
The Biggest Story, by Kevin DeYoung leads kids and parents as well, on an exciting journey through the Bible. The way he tells each story is so clear and connects the dots from the garden of Eden to Christ's death on the cross to the new heaven and new earth. The way the book is put together actually seems like one big story rather than a bunch of little stories. I gave this book to my ten year old to read as he's very curious about all things and he has read through a couple of chapters so far. He's had a few questions but over all really finds the book interesting, especially the illustrations!
The Biggest Story is filled with the most amazing illustrations that I have ever seen in a children's book. I'm so impressed that there are a few I would love to have framed in my home.
