We Think This Children’s Book Might Just Be the New Gold Standard

Kevin DeYoung has written a classic. Can I say that since it just came out? This endearing, playful and engaging book is not just for kids, parents or children’s ministry leaders. It’s for everyone.

The Biggest Story: How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden is a story about the bigger story. Instead of looking at individual Bible stories, DeYoung weaves us through one grand story that starts in the garden of Eden and takes us to Christ’s death and resurrection and back to the garden once again.

Compelling illustrations by award-winning artist Don Clark bring the story to life along with beautiful prose to captivate readers. It is breathtaking.
