The Biggest Story Book( Giveaway - closed)

More than likely, most kids think of the Bible , as a big book with lots and lots of smaller  stories.. just a collection of great stories. Our girls know the story of Adam and Eve, Noah and Daniel. But do they know the BIGGEST STORY? The biggest story that connects all those smaller stories.

I am in awe with the very colorful and impressive imagery in this book. Yes, it is not the usual illustrations that you find with a beginner Bible book. The author, described the imagery as allusions. The story behind the imagery may not be as obvious as in other Children's Bibles but that's what I love about it. It can be a point of discussion with our kids.


The Biggest Story , How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back To the Garden , is the book that you will want to read..over and over again to your children. It teaches how those "smaller stories" in the Bible play a part in The Biggest Story -- on God's plan on redeeming His sinful people . Jesus (the snack crusher) was sent as the best gift from God.

The Bible is full of stories. Gods' enormous love for us, His unending mercy and overflowing grace. I love how the whole book has the colorful garden theme . As the author said, " It is not a coincidence that the biblical story starts in a garden ( GEN 1) and ends in  a garden ( REV 22). The Biggest Story, is a story of how rebels or sinful humans ( Adam and Eve) got kicked out of the garden. Because of God's enormous love for us , He made promises and kept those promises ( Noah and the flood , as one example). He sent Jesus Christ, His one and only son to redeem us.



This book definitely should be on your book shelf. It should be a part of your bedtime story routine or even a "read to me -cuddle time" with your kids. If you are homeschooling and you want to incorporate the Bible in your curriculum, you definitely have to include this book in your list of must have, must read.  Yes, the book was amazingly illustrated ( and I love colorful things..) but because "the Bible's biggest story -- the story of our snake crushing King and our destined to die Redeemer -- IS THE BEST, EVER STORY THAT'S BEEN TOLD".

And because my family loves this book, I am very happy to offer one copy as a giveaway ,
