The Big Picture Story Bible

Dr. Plummer recommended in class the other day a children's Bible called The Big Picture Story Bible from CrossWay. It looks to be a great improvement over the usual fare of Bible story books that fail to represent biblical events how they fit into "the big picture".

A reviewer at Amazon.com writes: "...Helm (the author) refuses to treat the bible as a collection of disconnected stories whose main purpose is to get kids to "be good little boys and girls". Instead He lets the bible be what it is meant to be: the unfolding and often messy story of the creator's plan to rescue this rebellious world and bring it back under the rule of it's rightful king."
