Author - Carl Laferton
This beautifully illustrated hardback book takes children on a journey from the garden of Eden to God's prefect new creation. Retelling the Easter story through a Bible overview, children will discover that 'because of our sin, we can't go in' but because of Jesus' victory on the cross, an even better garden awaits us...

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. -- R. Albert Mohler - President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
This is quite superb. Beautifully written and illustrated, this tells the story of the gospel so captivatingly that little ones will want to read it again and again. I'm sure it will win many young lives to Christ. -- Michael Reeves - President and Professor of Theology at Union School of Theology, Oxford; author of Rejoicing in Christ
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 neighbors, and talk about what it means to live in light of the fact that the curtain has been torn. -- Gloria Furman - Cross-cultural worker, author of The Pastor's Wife and Missional Motherhood
