Faithful, theologically rich children's books are a rare treat in Christian publishing. Laferton has provided us 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.

My grandchildren loved this book—and so did I. Both the pictures and the words have made the Bible's story of redemption clear and beautiful. This is a book that invites us in.

Gloria Furman

I am so excited about this book! It is colorful, engaging, and creative, and that's just the icing on the cake! Our children receive invitations to participate in many different stories—stories of who they are, their purpose, and what God is like. 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 neighbours, and talk about what it means to live in light of the fact that the curtain has been torn.

I think Carl Laferton has done an exceptional job of simplifying an essential truth which could easily come across as very complicated … He makes articulating doctrine seem like child’s play.... continue reading

“The Gospel in All Scripture”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross Storybook')

We absolutely love the Truth that Tells the Truth series, but this book is our favorite. We go back to it time and time again. It gives my kids a complete view of scripture as being one big story, rather than a bunch of unrelated individual stories. I love that through this book, my kids can grasp the Gospel and see that it has always been God's plan for salvation.


“Love these books”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross Storybook')

Our family now has four of these books, and we will be buying more. They are biblically sound and have beautiful pictures that keep our three kids’ attention. It is a valuable resource to be able to start teaching truth as soon as they are able to sit and listen to books. So happy we received one as a gift so we could find more.


“excellent service”

This was the most simple book download I have ever done. It worked first try and that is amazing for me. I want to highly recommend the good I can also recommend the book The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross. It presents, a clear, true and simple message, with illustrations, to help understand just what Jesus death accomplished for us.



(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross Storybook')

It's a must have on our bookshelves for children. Lovely drawings that match the writing. Theology made simple for kids. 💕


“The BEST!”

I've been teaching in children's ministry since September 1974. This is the best presentation of the gospel for littles that I have ever used. I love the illustrations as well. I went on to buy the activity book and Sunday School curriculum and have shared it with others in my small group. I asked the publishers if I could use it at a para church gospel event held at a local pro and they very generously agreed. I'd give it more stars if I could!


“Simple Easter Theology for Children”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross Storybook')

An absolutely brilliant book both for content and presentation. essentially for children and of intriguing worth to the adults who read it alongside them. The best book I know for explaining Easter to children within the context of the whole Bible.


“Bible Over View”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross Storybook')

Although a children's book, I think this is one of the simplest and best Bible overviews I've come across. Adults can learn from it too! I keep having to buy another one because I've given my copy away. I'm so glad there is now a simlified board book version that I can read to my toddler group.


“Great resource”

Having this art available for free to go with the Sunday School curriculum (which we adapted for a three-night Vacation Bible School) was wonderful. The art is simply beautiful, engaging the imaginations of kids so well. And that made it perfect for flyers that we made and used to invite kids to participate in our VBS. So grateful for this resource!


“Creation, Fall, Redemption...clear gospel message for kids”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross Storybook')

The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross is one of the best gospel resources for children (adults too!). The creation, fall, redemption arc of scripture, the focus on Christ providing the way back into fellowship with God through death and resurrection is clearly presented. On a personal note, this book will forever hold a special place on our bookshelves and will be one we continue to gift to others as it was during a reading of The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross that the truth of the salvation became clear to our son (who was four at that time). Praise be to God! This is a great resource to use alongside Bible teaching and prayer in family discipleship.


“A great summation of the Gospel for little ones”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross Storybook')

I work for a pregnancy center and I purchase this book to give to our clients with young children. I love it! The colorful cover catches little ones' attentions and it packs a remarkable amount of the Gospel into just a few pages. The first time I looked through it, I teared up at the end when it shared the amazing hope we have stored up in Heaven. I definitely recommend!
