Tuesday Tome - The Biggest Story

This is a beautiful book that may not be available for too long. My brother, Joel, introduced me to it a couple months ago. The illustration work is fantastic and the quality of the printing and binding is really nice. The hardback version is on sale right now at Amazon for only $12.82. Look it up and be sure to click on the "Look Inside" link. Mom's and Dad's, this is one for the keepsake bookshelf!!!

Cheri and I just bought a few extra copies to have on hand as gifts for family and friends.

The Biggest Story: How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden
by Kevin DeYoung (Author) and Don Clark (Illustrator)

Publisher's Description...
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.

  1. Ah! I've been reading this book to my daughter Tirzah this week (1-2 chapters/night). We have one chapter left. I highly recommend this as well. I wonder why it might not be available for too long? I think it was just recently published.

  2. Yeah, I hope I'm wrong about the availability. It's just that when I see such a high quality book being sold for such a low price, it makes me wonder if it's not selling too well.
