The Biggest Story ~ Review and Give-away
My seven year old daughter and I read through The Biggest Story: How The Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden! We both really loved all the vibrant colors and illustrations, though for some it may be a distraction. The book reads like a fairy-tale story, as it starts out “Once Upon A Time”…. However it tells The Biggest Story ever, the true story of God’s love for us and HIS plan for us. There are ten short chapters in the book, it starts in the Garden and ends in the Garden. This story is an enjoyable read and one to read over and over. Who wouldn’t enjoy reading the true story of Jesus? The author began this book from a Christmas sermon for his church, to tell the advent story in a way that was fresh and faithful to the Biblical text.
For my readers, I have one copy of this book to give away from Flyby Promotions. If you are interested in winning, please comment to enter and I will draw a winner on Saturday, September 12, 2015.
