A beautiful illustrated book, helping to show children how the little stories in the Bible make up the big story.
Once upon a time there lived a man and a woman. They were the happiest people on the planet. True, they were the only people on the planet, but they were still terrifically happy.
Unfortunately, things didn’t stay happy and wonderful for long…
The burning bush. David and Goliath. Joseph and the coat of many colours. The Bible is full of classic stories that fill children with awe and wonder. But kids need to know how all those beloved stories connect to Scripture's overarching message about God's love for the world.
In The Biggest Story, best-selling author and father of six, Kevin DeYoung, leads readers on an exciting journey through the Bible, connecting the dots from the Garden of Eden to the return of Christ.
Short and extremely readable, this imaginative retelling of the biblical narrative can be read in one sitting and features action-packed illustrations that will bring the message of the Bible to life for the whole family.

The Biggest Story is a delight to the eyes, ears, and hearts of its readers. With rich illustrations and even richer text, the biggest and best story is presented in all of its vivid colors—every dark shade and every bright tone. Parent and child alike will feel the ache of the fallenness of human nature and the comfort of an always-faithful God. From our family to yours, we wholeheartedly commend this book!
In The Biggest Story, Kevin DeYoung masterfully tells the story of man’s inability to be good enough and God’s enduring faithfulness to his promise to bring us back to paradise. This is the big picture, not the typical moralistic way of telling the Bible’s story. This book is engaging and wonderfully illustrated; your kids will want sit on your lap and have you read it again and again.
I love what Kevin has done here! I’m buying a copy for each of my grandkids.
This is a really good read. I bought it to give away but had a good read first. It's a beautiful book with great pictures and powerful wording which meaningful brings the biblical narrative to life in fresh ways. This is not just a kids book. Adults will learn much from reading it too.
I'm not your average children's book reader, but I am a faltering godfather and wannabe aesthete. So when I was on the hunt for something encouraging to buy my goddaughter I stumbled across this gem of a book, dutifully ordered her a copy and a sneaky extra one for myself.
If we're going to judge a book by it's cover then this is fantastic book. To my eyes Don Clark has done a wonderful job. It's bright without being garish and certainly not twee. I love to the way he has carefully woven the themes of the story into the illustrations. Buy it.
However if you're uncomfortable with a skin deep assessment then be reassured that the qualities of this book don't just please the eye. Judging this book by its content I found it comes up trumps again. Being no aficionado of Christian kids literature I've no idea how many books there are out there that attempt to show the coherence of God's salvation plan. I'm certain there are many good books that tell the individual stories that many of us cherish from childhood, but I personally don't recall being shown the whole story. Clearly this will disappoint those expecting an in depth Bible overview, but that's because it's for children! I think there is tonnes of value in standing back and simply telling the one story of our great God's work to redeem us, his creation, from our sin to bring us back to himself. Mr DeYoung & Mr Clark show us that the Bible, and history, has only one author, and his story is the most glorious one.
