The Big Picture Story Bible
Full Product Description
No child is too young to begin learning about the greatest love story of all God’s love for his people, as portrayed in the Bible. David Helm and Gail Schoonmaker have together created a colorful book of Bible stories written especially for children ages 2-7. Rather than simply retelling portions of the Bible, this book presents the big picture the unified story running through the Old and New Testaments. Twenty-six stories together form parts of this big picture.
Simply written and beautifully illustrated, this book teaches children the Bible’s whole story so they can begin to appreciate the fulfillment of God's promise to his people. The Big Picture Story Bible is perfect for parents to read to their children and for older children to read on their own.
First published in 2004, The Big Picture Story Bible has been widely praised and used by parents. It now comes with an audio recording of the book, read by the author and presented on two CDs, one each for the Old and New Testaments. Great for Sunday school classes and trips in the car, children can listen to the text and follow along in the book.
The Big Picture Story Bible by David R. Helm & Gail Schoonmaker was published by Crossway in November 2010 and is our 15868th best seller. The ISBN for The Big Picture Story Bible is 9781433523915.

The Big Picture Story Bible with CDsLuke Hughes-Bunger, via The Good Book Stall
The Bible is a lot of things. It is a library, a collection of 66 books, penned by 40 or so authors, written over nearly 800 years. To many, it is a collection of interesting morality tales. Stories and fables, myth’s and legends, mostly unrelated, and irrelevant to the modern day.
To a Christian, however, the Bible is so much more. It is a vibrant, and immensely relevant story of God’s consistent and continuing interaction with humanity. It is our guide book, our source of understanding, the very words of God himself. Yes, it is a library of different books, and stories, penned by different men, in their own unique styles, but it is also a single, all encompassing narrative. A love story from God to Man, inspired by his spirit.
As Christians we know this. Yet altogether too often, we forget to teach this to our children. We teach Bible stories, as if they stand alone. Our children’s Bibles include the stories of Creation, the fall, Noah, Jonah, Moses, the first Christmas, the miracles, parables and Easter, and there most stop. They include no context, no indication that these stories are part of one big story. We forget to tell ‘the big picture’.
Enter The Big Picture Story Bible. For the first time in a very long time, the Bible is presented for children as one continuous narrative. Beginning in Genesis, and including almost every major story through to the end of Revelation, The Big Picture Story Bible reminds us that these stories, though fantastic on their own, are not unconnected, individual stories, but part of one big story, the biggest, and best story ever told.
Ideal for parents to read to the very young, and for older children to read aloud, it is also perfect for adults who sometimes struggle to understand how the stories they know so well fit into God’s plans for the redemption and salvation of all people.
This beautifully illustrated hardback edition also includes an audio CD, containing the complete, unabridged text of the book, so whole families can follow along together, as they listen to the story read to them.
A must read book for people of all ages, this is the ideal way to introduce children to the Bible, and help them understand that the individual stories which they will learn, do fit together perfectly, like a jigsaw, and make best sense when understood and admired as one big picture.
