Publisher's Description

Transform Your Family with Ten Minutes a Day in the Gospel Story

Christian parents know the importance of passing the gospel story on to their children, yet we live in a busy world filled with distractions. Schedules collide, there is homework and yard work and dishes and laundry, the car's oil should be changed, there are phone calls to make and before you know it, everyone is getting to bed late again. The Bible can seem like a long story for an active family to read, but when you break it down into short sections, as Marty Machowski does, family devotions are easy to do.

Long Story Short
will help busy parents share with their children how every story in the Old Testament points forward to God's story of salvation through Jesus Christ. You won't find a more important focus for a family devotional than a daily highlighting of the gospel of grace. Clever stories and good moral lessons may entertain and even help children, but the gospel will transform children. The gospel is deep enough to keep the oldest and wisest parents learning and growing all their lives, yet simple enough to transform the heart of the first grader who has just begun to read. Ten minutes a day, five days a week is enough time to pass on the most valuable treasure the world has ever known.

Long Story Short is a family devotional program designed to explain God's plan of salvation through the Old Testament and is suitable for children from preschool through high school.

    Our church began the new school year with the program that goes with this book. We've bought A Long Story Short to supplement what our kids' Sunday school classes are teaching them each week.

    We use this with our youngest three, ages 5, 3, and 2. It does seem to go over the head of our youngest, but the other two are getting quite a bit out of it. Since this is going to be used on a four year cycle (two years in the OT, two in the NT), as time goes on they'll get more and more out of it, and will have a solid foundation of the bible when they hit middle school, having gone through both books twice. It seems expensive at first, but when you consider all of the use we'll be getting out of it, it is absolutely reasonable.

    I love how it points to the Christ in each story! This gives more than just the history of the Bible, but what it really all means as well!

    The Bible study does what all should- show the Bible as a cohesive unit all pointing to Christ. The New Testament interprets the Old, not vice-versa.

    Love that it walks through so many passages of scripture and is easy to understand for my 5 year old. Definitely recommended!

    I'm glad I ordered 2 of these (one for myself, and one for my sister) and I might even order more for friends! We are new to doing a family devotional, and was a little worried how this new tradition would be received by my kids and husband. We did our first devotional after we ate dinner, and it couldn't have gone smoother. The content and questions kept my kids talking and they had such great input and ideas! After we were done with the first one, my kids begged me to do another one, and the next day they both said they couldn't wait for devotional time!

    We are really enjoying this book as a family. We have a Kindy girl and 2nd grade boy. I do believe that this book would go over the heads of children younger than this, but this is great for the stages our kids are in now.

    It isn't fast- I think we're on week 3 and still in the beginning (and I mean beginning/creation) of genesis. But it is packed with nuances that get glossed over when the stories are told/read their usual ways.

    I'd recommend it!
