Free Stuff Fridays (The Good Book Company)

This week’s Free Stuff Friday is sponsored by The Good Book Company who also sponsored the blog this week. They have 5 packages of their bestselling children’s storybook series to give away.

Tales That Tell The Truth are an exciting range of storybooks for children aged 3-6 which combine stunning illustrations from Catalina Echeverri with faithful, Bible-centered storytelling. 5 winners will each receive the following titles:

The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross by Carl Laferton

Teach children why Jesus died and rose again and why that’s the best news ever. The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross 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.

In The Garden, The Curtain and The Cross, children will learn that Jesus breaks down the barrier of sin between us and God so that we can enjoy him forever.

Jesus and the Very Big Surprise by Randall Goodgame

Teach children about Jesus’ return and why it’s so surprising. Based on the parable in Luke 12 v 35-38, this storybook by well-known singer and TV presenter Randall Goodgame shows children that Jesus will return, and when he does, there will be an amazing party where… SURPRISE!… he will serve his faithful servants!

In Jesus and the Very Big Surprise kids will find out that Jesus didn’t tell us when that party will be, but we can make sure that we’re ready for it by loving him and loving his people while we wait.

The Friend who Forgives by Dan DeWitt

Do you ever talk before you think? Mess up? Let others down?

That’s what Peter did, again and again, and again, and it led him to abandon his best friend, Jesus.

Peter loved Jesus. He felt terrible when he pretended not to know him. He thought all was lost when Jesus died.

But after Jesus rose from the dead, he went and found Peter and forgave him. He explained that his death took the punishment for all of Peter’s mistakes and that his resurrection showed that the penalty was lifted.

Children know all about failing, but they don’t always experience true forgiveness. The Friend who Forgives points them to Jesus, the friend who will forgive them again and again and again.

God’s Very Good Idea by Trillia Newbell

Teach young children how to enjoy being delightfully different yet all part of God’s family.

God’s very good idea is to have lots of different people enjoying loving him and loving each other. This stunningly illustrated journey from the garden of Eden to God’s heavenly throne room shows how despite our sinfulness, everyone can be a part of God’s very good idea through the saving work of Christ.

God’s Very Good Idea celebrates diversity and will help children see how people from all ethnic and social backgrounds are valuable to God and how Jesus came to rescue all kinds of people. It will also excite them about being part of the church – God’s delightfully different family.

Jesus and the Lions’ Den by Alison Mitchell

Helps children to see the gospel heart of the whole Bible as they discover how Daniel points to Jesus.

The story of Daniel and the Lions’ Den teaches children many things… It teaches them about praying; it teaches them about Daniel’s faithfulness to God and God’s faithfulness to Daniel, and it teaches them that God is the real king of everyone everywhere.

But if you peel back another layer, you’ll see that like the rest of the Old Testament, it also points to Jesus.

Jesus and the Lions’ Den helps children to see Jesus in the story of Daniel. It challenges children to spot the ‘Jesus moments’ by looking out for the hidden lion symbols. It goes on to explain the parallels between Jesus and Daniel so that children can see the gospel heart of the whole Bible.

    Do You Envy the Wicked?

    It takes a long time for sinful instincts to become pure, for tendencies toward what is evil to be transformed into tendencies toward what is good, lovely, and pleasing to God.

  • Lets Hear It For the Second Parents

    Let’s Hear It For the Second Parents

    While today we tend to associate step-parents with divorce, in previous centuries they were almost exclusively associated with death and with either widow- or widowerhood. In an era in which lifespans were shorter and, therefore, a greater number of parents died while their children were still young, there was a distinct and honored role for…
