The Biggest Story: How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden

Staff Review: The Biggest Story: How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden

"The Biggest Story: How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden" by Kevin DeYoung, Don Clark

'The Biggest Story: How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden'  by  Kevin DeYoung, Don Clark
★★★★

This brilliantly illustrated book covers the Bible’s central message in just 10 chapters using simple, casually styled language. It describes the Bible story of the snake crusher (that’s Jesus), defeating death forever so that we can live with God in the garden as the biggest story the world has ever known. DeYoung’s writing makes the Bible accessible to younger readers and listeners, and Clark’s accompanying illustrations add character to the story. The clean lines and geometric shapes reminded me of Charley Harper’s art. I loved the detail and color on each page! Reading through this book is a great way to rekindle the joy of the Bible for parents as they share it with their kids.
