The Biggest Story

There are big stories in the world. And then there is The Biggest Story the new book written by Kevin DeYoung. The book has been turned into an audio book and a animated story.

The Story

This audio book and animated story tell the story of the Bible in 26 minutes. It doesn't sound possible, but the author does it. He tells the story of God's plan for humanity. And with it he communicates God's love for the world.

What I Liked

I really enjoyed watching this video. The author does a good job of telling the story of the Bible. He combines the smaller stories we all know to show that God's desire for humanity is to live in paradise. And the animation is wonderful. The illustrations by Don Clark is beautiful. This animated story doesn't have the cutesy feel of Disney animation. It has a more sophisticated feel to it. I love how it moves from dark colors to lighter colors depending on where the story is.

Who Will Enjoy This

While the story is actually written for children, both adults and children will enjoy this DVD. The entire story is appropriate for individuals of all ages. If you enjoy great animation you will also enjoy this video. It's colorful and it is creative. It goes well with the story. Keep in mind this is a religious story.

Disclaimer

I did receive a free copy of the DVD and audio book in exchange for a fair review.
