But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

The Biggest Story is a Bible survey, a biblical/theological/historical/redemptive review of the great theme of Scripture, and all done for little kids. Written for kids, it treats the great realities represented by those words, but without using any of those words. It is the biggest story, but without the biggest words.image

The subtitle is “How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden.” This book is really wonderfully done. It begins with the story of creation, works through the Flood, the promise to Abraham, the Exodus, the reign of David, the birth, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus, the gift of the Spirit, and then our return to the Garden.

The illustrations by Don Clark are quite festive, and invite examination. It is quite likely that your children will read and reread this book, and it is also quite likely that they will study the pictures. If you want a sneak peak at some of the pictures, you can take a look here.

The book is pitched to an age group that includes kids who can read it themselves as well as kids who would want it read to them. If you read it to the kids — which would be entirely manageable, not to say enjoyable — you will discover yourself learning some things yourself.

There is something about this book — it has drawing power. Set it out on the coffee table, and watch people go right to it. This book is just simply a good business.
