In this book, he gives children an overview of the Bible’s entire redemptive storyline—beginning with creation, ending with new creation, and centering on Jesus, the “Snake Crusher.” It’s obviously a lot to pack into 130 brief and illustrated pages, so if you’re looking for detailed retellings of the “little stories” like Cain and Abel or David and Goliath, expect to be disappointed. But if you’re interested in seeing how these “little stories” fit into the big story about Jesus, then we’d encourage you to make this little book a part of your family reading. We strongly suspect your children won’t be the only ones learning.
Not only is The Biggest Story a lasting contribution to family collections, it’s also an aesthetically delightful book. A thin, dust-jacketed hardback, it’s solid and feels good in the hands. The illustrations are both rich and a just bit dark. Don Clark is clearly a pro illustrator.
