Faithful, theologically rich children's books are a rare treat in Christian publishing. Laferton has provided us one of the best little treatments of biblical theology available for parents to read to their children. The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross not only teaches children stories in the Bible but the story of the Bible - one that culminates in the atoning work of Jesus Christ who gives broken sinners access to God. This book is a tremendous resource for parents and children who want to better understand the grand storyline of Scripture.

This is quite superb. Beautifully written and illustrated, this tells the story of the gospel so captivatingly that little ones will want to read it again and again. I’m sure it will win many young lives to Christ.

Kathleen Nielson

Director of Women's Initiatives at The Gospel Coalition

My grandchildren loved this book—and so did I. Both the pictures and the words have made the Bible's story of redemption clear and beautiful. This is a book that invites us in.

"Stunning artwork"

It’s both a fresh way of telling the Easter story as well as good way to share the meaning of the cross.... continue reading

 

"Remarkable"

Megan, Redeemed Reader, October 3rd 2016

This remarkable picture book beautifully depicts the creation-fall-redemption story in a way that is fresh if you already know it, and clear if you don’t.... continue reading

 

"Exceptional"

Catherine Brookes, Mum in Zone One, February 2nd 2016

I think Carl Laferton has done an exceptional job of simplifying an essential truth which could easily come across as very complicated … He makes articulating doctrine seem like child’s play.... continue reading

“A great book to help children learn to read the Bible!”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross')

When I was teaching my Sunday children's group on Exodus 24 and the holiness of God, one of the young boys who has read this book said 'because of our sin, we can't come in'. I can't think of a better recommendation for this really helpful Bible overview of God's good garden, our terrible sin and all Jesus did to invite us back in again. It helps children understand who God is and how kind he has been to us, and gives them tools to understand the Bible from a young age. Highly recommend.

“Wonderful biblical book”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross')

A lovely book with beautiful illustrations which together tells biblical truths. I have the whole collection of these books and they are all wonderful. Great for children and adults for easy bed time reading!

“Really helpful and clear book”

We really enjoyed reading this excellent little book that contains so much theology! Thanks for clearly presenting Christ to us.

“Helpful in making the story come alive”

It's been very helpful to my storytelling (especially in our lockdown times via Zoom!) to be able to tell the story in a way that respects copyright and makes kids able to see it on their screens. This GBC initiative of providing the graphics for their children's books has been a massive encouragement for me to continue focusing on reading it well rather than finding ways the children can even see the book!

“Thanks”

Thank you very much for making available the Garden, the Curtain and the Cross on line. I printed off two of the wonderful pictures and used them to help tell the Easter story from John 20. Your generosity is much appreciated at this time of on-line teaching.

“An excellent book for children which explains the gospel beautifully.”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross')

This is an excellent book for children and explains the gospel beautifully. Great illustrations too. I bought the Easter and activity book that goes with it. Enjoyed opening the calendar each morning with my grandson and reading the Easter story. Great resource

“Fantastic and engaging.”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross')

A fantastic book that engages the reader (young or old). It clearly links key events in the Bible showing how and why they matter. We often read this book with our children and have given many copies to friends and family as well.
