When was the last time you heard some really incredible news that you couldn't wait to share? The Gospel of Mark is that kind of good news! It’s a life-changing announcement about who Jesus is, and what he’s done.

Best News Ever is a devotional that takes tweens aged 9-12 on a 100-day journey through Mark's fast-paced, action-packed story—helping them understand the confusing bits, showing them how it connects with their life, and bringing them face to face with Jesus: the one who changes everything.

Each day's devotional includes:
• A passage to read — work through the whole of Mark's Gospel in bitesize chunks
• A short explanation — guiding you though the confusing bits and showing you how it connects with your life
• A question to reflect on — so you can slow down and think through what you've read
• A prayer to pray — to help you respond to what God has said

Written in a pithy and engaging style, Best News Ever will help young people of all backgrounds read the Bible for themselves, whether they know a little or a lot already. It would also be suitable to use as a family devotional.

Wow—if you’re looking for a fresh devotional on the Gospel of Mark which packages the best scholarship into 100 bite-sized portions that your preteens will love to read, then look no further. Best News Ever by Chris Morphew is the best study of Mark for this age-group that I’ve ever seen. Older children (and their parents!) will find each 2-page devotional engaging (Chris is a brilliant storyteller), enlightening (he’s a master teacher), and incredibly encouraging (again and again he shines the spotlight on our Savior)! I hope you’ll get copies for the 9-to-12-year-olds in your life—and then read it with them!

Best News Ever makes a way for my ten-year-old to independently spend 100 days reading, learning, and praying through the Gospel of Mark. Morphew warmly invites pre-teen readers to engage with the Biblical text first and then acts as a friendly tutor, guiding them through context, comprehension, application, and prayer. As a mother of five, I’m grateful to find a hands-on tool to assist growing disciples as they learn to walk confidently and responsibly through Scripture

Best News Ever is an excellent tool for parents and pastors to place in the hands of their maturing child. For those who are passionate about passing the faith on to the next generation, this is a vital tool for the young Christian seeking to deepen their understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ

Customer reviews


“True, profound and manageable!”

(Review written for 'Best News Ever')

I was sceptical of this at first because my children are used to Bible notes with puzzles and activities to do. This is just words! However, my 10- and 8-year-old really enjoyed it, and I was amazed by Chris Morphew's ability to give a deep yet concise explanation in each and every (wonderfully short) chapter. Really thought-provoking. We all learnt a lot! And it's great to have the prayer at the end of each chapter, as children often struggle to find the words - as do adults! It would work well for older children reading on their own, too - although I always think it's best to read the Word with them!
