The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross
The True Story of Why Jesus Died and Rose Again
This beautiful hardback Bible storybook for 3-6 year olds 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!
Stunningly illustrated by Catalina Echeverri, author and illustrator of several bestselling children’s books, this beautifully produced and biblically faithful book makes a perfect gift.
“Faithful, theologically rich children’s books are a rare treat in Christian publishing. Laferton has provided us with one of the best little treatments of biblical theology available for parents to read to their children. The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross not only teaches children stories in the Bible, but the story of the Bible – one that culminates in the atoning work of Jesus Christ who gives broken sinners access to God. This book is a tremendous resource for parents and children who want to better understand the grand storyline of Scripture.”
— Albert Mohler, President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“I am so excited about this book! It is colorful, engaging, and creative, and that’s just the icing on the cake! The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross is a brilliant re-telling of the one story that rules all other stories. I cannot commend this book highly enough. Read it to your children, give it to your neighbors, and talk about what it means to live in light of the fact that the curtain has been torn.”
— Gloria Furman, author of Glimpses of Grace and Treasuring Christ when your Hands are Full
