    Childrens books of late have been less and less concerned with the truths of scripture, even books which claim to tell the story of Gods redemptive historical plan of salvation. Yet out of this mire rises a book which is a shining light in the darkness proclaiming that Gods love triumphs over our sin. This book is called The Garden, The Curtin, and The Cross by Carl Laferton and illustrated by Catalina Echeverri. Produced by the Good Book Company this work takes a creative look at the Bible as a whole, retelling the creation account and the subsequent fall, how this placed a separation between man and God, leading to God sending Jesus breaking the curtain of separation with His victory on the cross.

    The Garden, The Curtin, and The Cross has two major strengths the articulate teaching of Gods Word and the illustration. With regard to the teaching of Gods Word, The Garden, The Curtin, and The Cross is doctinary sound while being fast paced, sharp, and witty. With regard to communicating the truths of Gods Word, Laferton goes to great lengths to communicate to young children, the Gospel starting with original sin, the need of a savior, and the provision of the savior in this unqiuqe approach to evangelism.

    With regard to the illustration The Garden, The Curtin, and The Cross, has vivid colors and is masterfully drawn so that it not only captures a childs attention but their imagination as well. Furthermore the illustrations start out bright then get darker as the story progress until Jesus is risen from the dead, these illustrations advance the story in a way words cannot do.

    If you are looking to purchase, The Garden, The Curtin, and The Cross, it is a delightfully articulated and beautifully illustrated, the audience is for ages 3 to 7, yet when I read it to my daughter (age under 2) she was captivated the entire time.

    This book was provided to me free of charge from The Good Book Company in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.

    "It is wonderful to live with Him, but because of your sin, you can't come in."

    A spiritually intuitive look at how mankind compromised the personal relationship that God originally intended for His creation, and at how God wonderfully repaired that broken relationship at great cost to Himself; the sacrifice of His only Son.

    "God's wonderful place is open again!"

    Gift for grandson, he can't yet appreciate how scripturally sound this book is but grandpa sure does. Simply written, doctrinally sound, and aesthetically pleasing. Would highly recommend.
