More About The Biggest Story by Kevin Deyoung; Don Clark
 
 
 
Overview

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. Ages 5-8 (read to me) Ages 8-11 (read to myself)

Pastor and author DeYoung (What Does the Bible Really Teach About Homosexuality?) impressively distills the Bible into 10 chapters, writing in a colloquial, occasionally humorous tone that reflects the book's origins in a sermon, as an endnote explains. Throughout, DeYoung emphasizes mankind's fallibility (of Isaac's children: "Great blessings. But not-so-great people. Isaac was sort of a weakling. Jacob was a selfish trickster. And Judah did such dumb stuff, we don't even want to talk about it") while hinting at the salvation that lay ahead with the birth of Jesus. Just as successful and integral are the moody illustrations provided by Clark, cofounder of design/illustration studio Invisible Creature. Dominated by dark shades of green, teal, crimson, and violet, the images are close cousin to the work of midcentury illustrators like Mary Blair, striking notes both triumphant and ominous; when God decides to flood the Earth ("They didn't deserve to enjoy God's world anymore. So God took it from them"), a black shadow swallows an image of the globe, as if seen from space. DeYoung aims for a broad Christian audience and hits the mark. Ages 8–12. (Aug.)
