Recently my family and I had the opportunity to review Kevin DeYoung’s new DVD and Audio Book called The Biggest Story: How The Snake Crusher Brings Us Back To The Garden in exchange for a my honest review.
I want to start by saying. “Wow!” I am always on the look-out for a new book or video for my kids to enjoy, especially ones that help them learn more about God’s love for them. So, when the opportunity presented itself that I could review these two products, I was on board!
The Bible is full of exciting stories that fill children and adults with awe and wonder. But all throughout scripture each of those stories connect to one major message, that God has a glorious plan to redeem his rebellious creation, and that is though Jesus (the snake crusher). The Biggest Story helps connect the dots from the garden of Eden, to Christ death on the cross and to the new heaven and new earth.
Kevin DeYoung has done a wonderful job of creating a product to teach this message through both the audio book and DVD. I recommend that both of these products be used at home, church or in the classroom for ages 5 years and older.
My children and I first listened to the Audio Book which is compiled of 10 chapters that are each 2-3 minutes in length. Kevin DeYoung serves as the narrator for the Audio Book that focuses mostly on the classic stories in the bible. Kevin uses child friendly wording that helped my kids to be able to envision each story while giving them a greater understanding of God’s heart. The background music, composed by John Poon, helped to stir my kids emotions within each story. I enjoyed the audio book the best, I liked being able to use my imagination to paint each story!
A few days later we watched the DVD. Again Kevin DeYoung narrated while John Poon composed the music and the illustrations were created by award- winning artist Don Clark. The DVD is also compiled of 10 chapters with each chapter being 2-3 minutes in length.
I believe that my children enjoyed the DVD the best. They loved the colorful illustrations in each chapter that helped them to gain a better understanding of each bible story. This story has stirred up some great conversation in our home about the “snake crusher” and God’s plan for His children. It’s always wonderful to see your kids begin to understand just awesome God is and how powerful His love is for us! So I give this product two thumbs up!
