Last week, I recommended The Goldsworthy Trilogy, so I thought it would be appropriate this week to recommend the children’s book that was inspired by Goldsworthy’s books: The Big Picture Story Bible written by David Helm. Without a doubt, this book is the most used children’s resource in my home as well as what I most recommend to parents at our church. It takes the Goldsworthy theme of the kingdom of God as God’s people, in God’s place, under God’s rule and makes it the theme of this clear, well-illustrated storyline of God’s plan to redeem his people. I am so grateful for this book and feel it is such a helpful resource that it is the only thing I give as a gift to every parent who becomes a member of our congregation.
I have also used this book as a resource for new Christians to help them see and understand the whole storyline of the Bible. Every pastor, parent, and follower of Jesus Christ would benefit from reading and knowing this book. You can find a great sale on it here.
Any pastors or parents out there that use this book as much as I do?
