The Biggest Story: How The Snake Crusher Brings Us Back To The Garden Book Review + #Giveaway 9/24 US/CAN


Hardcover: 132 pages
Publisher: Crossway (August 31, 2015)
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 heave 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.  


Kevin DeYoung is senior pastor at University Reformed Church in East Lansing, Michigan.  He blogs at the Gospel Coalition and has authored or coauthored numerous well-known books, including Just Do SomethingThe Hole in Our HolinessCrazy Busy, and Taking God At His Word.  He lives with his wife and their 6 children in Central Michigan.

Don Clark is an artist and the cofounder of Invisible Creature, a widely respected and award-winning design studio in Seattle that has worked with clients such as Target, Nike, LEGO, and WIRED magazine.  He lives with his wife and their 3 children, 4 goats, 12 chickens, and 1 crazy dog on a farm just outside the city limits.

Sometimes, my daughters would ask me why they don't see God and no matter how I explain to them who God is, there are times when they couldn't understand what I'm saying. Yes, it is hard to explain what faith and belief is to young kids, like in the case of my 4 and 7 year old, so I when I read the book, The Biggest Story: How The Snake Crusher Brings us Back to the Garden, I was so happy at how this book made the stories in the Bible simple and easy to comprehend.

The book came in a hardbound style and the pages are glossy. The story started with the story of Adam and Eve until the death of Jesus Christ. At the end of the story, there is a moral which is nice because it briefly and simply explained what faith and belief is. The words used on this book is appropriate for young children and the illustrations were very nice. I love how it simplified other stories in the Bible like Noah's ark and etc.

This is a great bedtime book and a great way to make young children understand who God is and how He watches over us and guides us.
