    I have not yet read The Biggest Story How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden, but I would like to get ahold of it at some point, because I really like the idea of learning to view the Bible as one big story But I was excited to see a board book version, because that s about the stage we re at I really like it I will say, if you re looking for an alphabet book that s aimed at preschoolers and presents a concrete physical item for each letter, you ll want something else for that and there are tons of other ABC books out there from basics like My First ABC to just about any subject matter This book s main purpose is to communicate the big story of the Bible in a linear way, while focusing on one term for each letter, and I think it does a great job even though, like I said, some of the terms are on the abstract side Curse, Law, Naughty, Quiet, etc So while the language is simple enough for preschoolers, it can work just as well for kindergarten aged kids since the alphabet gives it a linear framework.The only letter I didn t really care for was G for gnats while talking about Egypt and the plagues I mean the G isn t even pronounced surely there are other words that would have worked better God Glory shrug Overall though, this is a really great book for introducing children to the big story of the Bible Author Kevin DeYoung comes at it from a Reformed perspective, and while I enjoyed and appreciated it without being a Calvinist, I can t speak for how well it would appeal to Christian traditions that are very different from my own.

    Pro s pretty brilliantly covers the basic concept story of the Bible in 26 pages illustrations are beautiful and not overly detailed no clear skin tones, etc Con s while theologically accurate for the most part, there are a couple pages that didn t feel right for me as a KJV studier examples, God sent gnats in Exodus or that we are headed to Zion It would be better to read this as a story rather than an ABC study because some of the letters are a bit of a stretch That being said, while most of the story flows chronologically, there are a couple places that may feel off I was hoping to use this as an introduction to the whole concept of the Bible for my toddler, but learned that this was too ambitious It was too much content and kind of overwhelmed him I think it would be better to skip the board book version which is a smaller version of The Biggest Story.

    This is a children s book written by Christian pastor, theological professor and Christian writer Kevin DeYoung DeYoung is probably better known for his works for an adult Christian general audience This is what I believe his second children s book and he brings his writing skill to share biblical truths in a way that is accessible to his specific audience which in this instance is for children ages 1 to 3.I love how the author wrote this book based upon the ABCs of the English alphabet For instance A is for Adam and DeYoung tells us that in the beginning God created Adam and Eve Parents reading this to their children will be able to expose their kids not only to biblical truths but also to the Alphabet I thought it was pretty cool with how the book was a biblical theology marching from Genesis to Revelation beginning with God s creation and ending with God s new creation It s kind of neat to see that summary of the Bible Each Alphabet covers a page that has a picture of the word of that letter.Since it is a children s book of course there is illustrations The illustrator Don Clark at times gives pictures that are abstract and maybe too abstract for the children I know that in my reading to the kids they did ask me what does the picture has to do with what was read Yet at other times the pictures are concrete and enjoyable and a delight for my children For those who are concern with second commandment issues with images of Jesus this booklet is illustrated with that consideration As a whole I did enjoy this book s illustration and also the colors throughout the book This cardboard book is handsome and printed in quality material.I recommend this book because it is kids tested and theologian approved.

    A Different Unusual ABC Board BookMost ABC board books for small children use the letters of the alphabet to focus on a single word like Apple or Ball Instead Kevin DeYoung tells the story of creation, the fall of mankind, then the message of the Old Testament melds into the salvation of the world through God sending Jesus Christ The combination of the focused message is combined with the beautiful illustrations from Don Clark Instead of the normal where each letter is focused on a single word, DeYoung has the particular word in a sentence for that letter For example, M They needed a Messiah to make things right Or N But God s people were Naughty almost all the time The distinctions make the text flexible than the normal ABC book and entertaining for young children The creative twists with THE BIGGEST STORY ABC make this book a hit with young readers and something parents will enjoy reading repeatedly I recommend this book.

    DeYoung walks readers through God s plan for humanity and salvation as outlined in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation by using one sentence phrases that highlight and explain one term that starts or incorporates for X the letter of the alphabet.This is an exemplary work of summarizing the message of the Bible succinctly and doing it chronologically AND alphabetically There are people who have written entire multi volume doorstoppers to say what DeYoung says in just 26 sentences Kids should find it attractive and adults should find it a good avenue to talk about God s plan of salvation through Jesus, how the Bible stories fit into that plan, and other basics of Christianity A fantastic picture book for Christian families and schools.

    This is a beautifully simple, theologically sound ABC storybook The overall story of the Bible is all there and flows smoothly even with the alphabetical constraints Though geared for children ages 1 3, I think a slightly older child could memorize this book and have a good basic understanding of God s story It s written well and has interesting though somewhat abstract pictures to go with each page.This is the board book version of The Biggest Story How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden Thank you to Crossway for providing me with a free e copy of this book I was not required to leave a review All opinions are my own.

    I loved The Biggest Story How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden and didn t think you could net the essence of the Bible down to much shorter of a story but Kevin DeYoung has done it with his new book The Biggest Story ABC Board Book In 26 phrases he has captured the essence of God s love for his people us and how Jesus not only rescues us from our sins but is our Victor and how we will get to live with him some day.I recommend this board book for everyone who wants to understand the essence of the Christian faith as presented in the Bible whether you have a baby to read it to or not.
