WELCOME TO THE BIG STORY
The Bible is made up of sixty-six books and was written
over many centuries, but it tells one big story of God’s love.
Would you like to know this amazing story better? The
next two insert sections will guide you through it in thirty
sentences—each represented by one of the thirty pictures

Do you think it’s possible to summarize the big story of the Old Testament
in fifteen sentences? It is—check it out! Each sentence in this section
is followed by a helpful list of Bible passages you can read to learn

throughout this section for ideas about how to engage with the verses you
read in the creative space provided. You’ll be surprised how well you can
remember God’s big story!
