The approach connects up the whole story of the Bible and attempts to give an overview of God's purposes by seeing the Bible not as a collection of unrelated events but as an amazing and ordered revelation of God's love. Each of the 36 sessions contains a wealth of thought-provoking activities and reflective ideas to accompany the storytelling. The material includes an initial overview in the form of a visual timeline of Bible history, designed to help children and their leaders gain the bigger perspective. The six themes are then each introduced by a reflective story that acts as an anchor for a further six individual stories. The material in The Big Story is ideal for 6 - 10 year olds.The big themes explore: Enemies and friends: God's longing for friendship with and between all people Dark and light: the first gift of creation and abiding reality of re-creation Famine and feast: the rhythm of abundance and shortage Death and life: God's heart for bringing life out of places of destruction Depths and heights: journeying with God from despair to joy Hide and seek: experiencing the immediate presence and apparent absence of God The material can be used in a variety of ways: As a stand-alone resource to begin thinking about special times of year To give an overview before picking out two or three of the individual stories As the basis for a children's activity day or holiday club As a three-term programme with one big theme being explored in each half-term period The Barnabas Children's Bible, with its unique reordering of the stories into their chronological order, has inspired the development of The Big Story materials.
