More Than a Story: Old Testament

More Than a Story: Old Testament

Exploring the Message of the Bible with Children


Age Range: Family

More Than a Story: Old Testament is a new kind of Bible resource for children (ages 6-12)—taking them on a chronological journey through the Bible with a God-centered, gospel-focused, discipleship-oriented, theologically grounded perspective.

The glorious account of creation and the sobering account of the flood; the scattering of peoples and a people becoming a nation; a burning bush that is not extinguished and an offering consumed by fire from heaven; a giant killed by a boy’s stone and a boy brought back to life through a prophet’s prayer; water from a rock and bread from heaven—the pages of this book are filled with stories from the Bible, all of them absolutely and eternally true, telling one grand story. More than a storybook, this 432-page book displays God’s manifold character as well as His glorious deeds, righteous commands, sure promises, warnings through the prophets and plan of redemption.

Though the Bible is full of stories, it is MORE THAN A STORY. It is the authoritative Word of God that, throughout its pages, proclaims and magnifies the majestic character of God, His work in this world, and His plan of redemption for sinful men through His Son, Jesus.

More Than a Story is a new kind of Bible resource for children (ages 6-12)—taking them on a chronological journey through the Bible with a God-centered, gospel-focused, discipleship-oriented, theologically grounded perspective. Though the Bible is full of stories, it is MORE THAN A STORY. It is the authoritative Word of God that, throughout its pages, proclaims and magnifies the majestic character of God, His work in this world, and His plan of redemption for sinful men through His Son, Jesus.

More Than a Story: Old Testament takes children on a chronological journey through the Bible, exploring both the breadth and depth of Scripture. Key doctrines of the Christian faith are emphasized and clearly explained, all leading to the glorious realities of the gospel. Actual texts of Scripture are woven into each chapter, exposing children to the variety of literary genres, events, people, places, and themes of the Bible.

The glorious account of creation and the sobering account of the flood; the scattering of peoples and a people becoming a nation; a burning bush that is not extinguished and an offering consumed by fire from heaven; a giant killed by a boy’s stone and a boy brought back to life through a prophet’s prayer; water from a rock and bread from heaven—the pages of this book are filled with stories from the Bible, all of them absolutely and eternally true, telling one grand story. More than a storybook, this 432-page book displays God’s manifold character as well as His glorious deeds, righteous commands, sure promises, warnings through the prophets and plan of redemption.

Written in an interactive style, it enables parents and children to engage in conversations addressing the mind, heart, and will, encouraging children to “set their hope in God” (Psalm 78:7). Above all, More Than a Story was written to inspire the worship of God for the glory of God! “All the nations you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord, and shall glorify your name. For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God” (Psalm 86:9-10).

Scripture quotations are from the ESV® Bible.
