When was the last time you heard some really incredible news that you couldn't wait to share? The Gospel of Mark is that kind of good news! It’s a life-changing announcement about who Jesus is, and what he’s done.
Best News Everis a devotional that takes tweens aged 9-12 on a 100-day journey through Mark's fast-paced, action-packed story—helping them to understand the confusing bits, showing them how it connects with their life, and bringing them face to face with Jesus: the one who changes everything.
Each day's devotional includes: • A passage to read — work through the whole of Mark's Gospel in bite-sized chunks • A short explanation — guiding you though the confusing bits and showing what it means for you • A question to reflect on — so that you can slow down and think through what you've read • A prayer to pray — to help you respond to what God has said
Written in a pithy and engaging style,Best News Everwill help young people of all backgrounds to read the Bible for themselves, whether they know a little or a lot about Jesus already. It is also ideal to use as a family devotional.
Wow—if you’re looking for a fresh devotional on the Gospel of Mark which packages the best scholarship into 100 bite-sized portions that your preteens will love to read, then look no further. Best News Ever by Chris Morphew is the best study of Mark for this age-group that I’ve ever seen. Older children (and their parents!) will find each 2-page devotional engaging (Chris is a brilliant storyteller), enlightening (he’s a master teacher), and incredibly encouraging (again and again he shines the spotlight on our Savior)! I hope you’ll get copies for the 9-to-12-year-olds in your life—and then read it with them!

Best News Ever walks us through Mark’s Gospel to see and learn and think through how the truth about Jesus might change our lives forever. It’s a great mix of detail, background and big picture, delivered in really manageable, day-by-day readings

Best News Ever makes a way for my ten-year-old to independently spend 100 days reading, learning, and praying through the Gospel of Mark. Morphew warmly invites pre-teen readers to engage with the Biblical text first and then acts as a friendly tutor, guiding them through context, comprehension, application, and prayer. As a mother of five, I’m grateful to find a hands-on tool to assist growing disciples as they learn to walk confidently and responsibly through Scripture
