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 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 teach children that God's promises are even bigger and better than we think.
From Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden, to Zion and the new creation, the Bible is telling one big story - the story of God's promise to deliver His people. Kevin DeYoung has written a new board book to help kids ages 1 to 4 to make connections from Genesis to Revelation and from A to Z.
Each page introduces a new letter of the alphabet with engaging and whimsical illustrations from award-winning artist Don Clark - retelling the biblical narrative in one continuous story. This board book is a fun way for parents to introduce their small children to the big story of the Bible.

"The Biggest Story is a delight to the eyes, ears, and hearts of its readers. With rich illustrations and even richer text, the biggest and best story is presented in all of its vivid colors... Parent and child alike will feel the ache of the fallenness of human nature and the comfort of an always-faithful God."
--- Matt and Lauren Chandler
“InThe Biggest Story, Kevin DeYoung masterfully tells the story of man’s inability to be good enough and God’s enduring faithfulness to his promise to bring us back to paradise. This is the big picture, not the typical moralistic way of telling the Bible’s story. This book is engaging and wonderfully illustrated; your kids will want sit on your lap and have you read it again and again.”

“Besides the Bible, this is exactly the kind of book that I love to give as a gift. All day long, from infancy to adulthood, we are all invited to participate in different stories—wear this product, use this technology, vote this way, go to this school, follow this leader. What could be more important than teaching our children the Big Story? Kevin's retelling of the Serpent-Crusher's conquest will be beloved by parents and children alike.”

"This book is really wonderfully done.The Biggest Storyis a Bible survey, a biblical/theological/historical/redemptive review of the great theme of Scripture, and all done for little kids. The illustrations by Don Clark are quite festive, and invite examination. There is something about this book — it has drawing power. Set it out on the coffee table, and watch people go right to it."
