Big Picture Story Bible

I've recommended this Story Bible before, but felt it was worth mentioning again!

It's the Big Picture Story Bible by David Helm (Author), Gail Schoonmaker (Illustrator).


It is awesome and I highly recommend it - for kids of all ages!

from Amazon.com:

Product Description Rather than simply retelling the most familiar short scenes from the Bible, this book presents the big picture the unified story running through the Old and New Testaments. This delightful book will help children learn the Bible's whole story and begin to appreciate the fulfillment of God's promise to his people. The Big Picture Bible Story Book is perfect for parents to read to their children, and eventually, for children to read on their own. It is an excellent way to introduce them to a book that will guide them through all of life.


The themes it traces are simple, and super encouraging to me as well! They are as follows:

God has always wanted a place for his people. And He wants to be their King.

But:
We consistently doubt God's goodness
We choose to disobey God's words
We don't let God be our King - instead, we rule the world in evil ways

The book follows these themes throughout the big picture of scripture to reveal how God makes it right again.

So, pick this one up for your family. You can buy it locally at the Christian book store in town, or order it online from the link above.

And, if you haven't purchased the Jesus Storybook Bible, you can buy them together on amazon.com for $27.18. Not a bad price for some good theology for your little ones.
