Publisher's Description

This beautiful hardback Bible storybook for 3-6 year olds takes children on a journey from the Garden of Eden to God’s perfect new creation. It is a gospel presentation that focuses on the significance of the temple curtain. God said “because of your sin you can’t come in”, but the moment the curtain tore in two, everything changed.

Children will learn why Jesus died and rose again and why that’s the best news ever.

Editorial Reviews

Faithful, theologically rich children's books are a rare treat in Christian publishing. Laferton has provided us one of the best little treatments of biblical theology available for parents to read to their children. The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross not only teaches children stories in the Bible but the story of the Bible - one that culminates in the atoning work of Jesus Christ who gives broken sinners access to God. This book is a tremendous resource for parents and children who want to better understand the grand storyline of Scripture. -- R. Albert Mohler, Jr (President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary)

My grandchildren loved this book—and so did I. Both the pictures and the words have made the Bible's story of redemption clear and beautiful. This is a book that invites us in. -- Kathleen Nielson (Director of Women's Initiatives at The Gospel Coalition)

I think Carl Laferton has done an exceptional job of simplifying an essential truth which could easily come across as very complicated … He makes articulating doctrine seem like child’s play. -- Catherine Brookes

As a mother of four little children, I am always eager to find books that warm and guide their young hearts towards the big story of the Bible and the good news of Jesus. ‘The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross’ is one of those gems! -- Kristyn Getty (Singer, songwriter, and co-author of Sing!)

I am so excited about this book! It is colorful, engaging, and creative, and that's just the icing on the cake! Our children receive invitations to participate in many different stories—stories of who they are, their purpose, and what God is like. The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross is a brilliant re-telling of the one story that rules all other stories. I cannot commend this book highly enough. Read it to your children, give it to your neighbours, and talk about what it means to live in light of the fact that the curtain has been torn. -- Gloria Furman (Cross-cultural worker, author of The Pastor's Wife and Missional Motherhood)

This is quite superb. Beautifully written and illustrated, this tells the story of the gospel so captivatingly that little ones will want to read it again and again. I’m sure it will win many young lives to Christ. -- Michael Reeves (President and Professor of Theology at Union School of Theology, Oxford; author of Rejoicing in Christ)

I’ve longed for a book like this, and now it's here. This book condenses incredibly complex stories into words and images that explain the story-line of the Bible in a way that young hearts will understand. Laferton has written a book that will help parents in teaching their children about the greatest news—the gospel—they could ever know. -- Trillia Newbell (Author of Enjoy, Fear and Faith, and United.)

'The Garden, The Curtain and The Cross' is a wonderful retelling of the world’s greatest story. With beautiful artistry on every page, it conveys the complexity of the human problem, and God’s ultimate sacrifice, with elegantly simple language and clever, powerful repetition, perfect for young ears. Children will be undoubtably be drawn to the paintings, and moved by the words. -- Randall Goodgame (Singer-songwriter, Slugs & Bugs music)

Brilliant. You will want to read this with your children. Clear story-telling combines with evocative artwork, and the gospel shines through. -- Josh Moody (Senior Pastor, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois)

Children need help in connecting the various stories of the Bible so that it isn't a book of fascinating but unrelated stories. Biblical theology for children is therefore essential and Carl Laferton's lavishly illustrated book succeeds brilliantly in explaining the true meaning of Easter. A must-have for all who are involved with children. -- Ian Fry (Part of the City Ministry Team, St Ebbe's, Oxford, UK; former Director of Youth and Children's Ministry at Oak Hill College, UK)

It’s both a fresh way of telling the Easter story as well as good way to share the meaning of the cross. -- Victoria

This remarkable picture book beautifully depicts the creation-fall-redemption story in a way that is fresh if you already know it, and clear if you don’t. -- Megan
