Kevin DeYoung has written an overview of the Bible in ten short chapters. That may sound like an impossibility but actually it’s a very good telling of the story of the whole Bible. He takes us from the garden of Eden to the new Heaven and the new Earth.
There is one small downside – he does use a few expressions that seem a bit clumsy and maybe the style is overly chatty. However, I either got used to this or it was more prominent in the early chapters as I soon no longer noticed. This is a great book. It is not just for children. Adults could easily find it a refreshing read reminding them of God’s love and his plan to bring about redemption.
The book is illustrated by Don Clark. I love the illustrations. They are colourful and striking. Lots of detail to look at and talk about with a child. But they aren’t childish and consequently this is suitable to give to a family to read and enjoy. For someone who is interested in putting the bits and pieces they have heard about Bible stories together, into a meaningful whole, this book would be a great gift.
Kevin DeYoung writes ‘I pray that for some this book may become a treasured ‘member’ of the family’. It is certainly a member of mine and will be read and treasured.
