One of the best things in Grandpa's shop is an old chest filled with small wood carvings. Each represents a Bible story, and they all fit together---just like God's Word! A terrific way to teach your 9- to 12-year-olds about the big picture of Scripture and God's plan of redemption for his people. 286 pages, softcover from P & R.
Learn along with Marc and Amy as Grandpa uses his special box of wooden carvings to illustrate the wonderful stories of the Bible to children. From Genesis to Revelation, Grandpa shows how the stories of the Bible fit as episodes in the one story of God's redemption of his people. Children will come away with a deeper understanding of God's plan of redemption told throughout all of Scripture. Even those children who already know the stories of the Bible will learn more about God and his plan for saving his people. Ages 9-12.
