Introduce Children to a Glorious God

More Than a Story: Old Testament is a new kind of Bible resource for children—taking them on a chronological journey through the Bible with a God-centered, gospel-focused, discipleship-oriented, theologically grounded perspective.

Though the Bible is full of stories, it is MORE THAN A STORY. It is the authoritative Word of God that, throughout its pages, proclaims and magnifies the majestic character of God, His work in this world, and His plan of redemption for sinful men through His Son, Jesus.


"Sally Michael has a big view of God and a deep respect for the words of Scripture.  These loves shine brightly in More Than a Story as she takes us through a gospel-rich look at the Old Testament. Along the way, she skillfully sneaks in theology, Old Testament chronology, and New Testament commentary. This is a wonderful resource for parents, grandparents, children’s workers, and, yes, even pastors."

CHAP BETTIS, author, The Disciple-Making Parent and Executive Director, The Apollos Project

"If you’ve ever visited a historical site, you’ll know how an expert tour guide can make all the difference. With decades of Bible study and teaching, Sally Michael now puts a masterful guide to God’s Word in your hands. I loved it! Packed with Scripture, this book is More Than a Story because it tells the true story of what God is doing in his world. So gather your family, enter the Story, and lead them on a life-changing tour of God’s Word."

CHAMP THORNTON, pastor and author of several books including The Radical Book for Kids and Why Do We Say Good Night?

Join the effort to produce the New Testament volume of
More Than a Story

Many parents, grandparents, teachers, and pastors made it possible for us to complete the Old Testament volume of More Than a Story. Their generous investments enabled us to illustrate, edit, and print the English version so that it can now be translated for global reach.

We are now trusting God to supply the remaining finances needed for the New Testament volume of this valuable resource. Will you consider the opportunity to help us complete this project?

You can partner with us while also reserving your own copies of these two books. As a thank you, anyone* who gives $100 or more (or $25 a month) will receive a copy of the Old Testament volume of More Than a Story in December and then the New Testament volume next summer.

*Limited to books that can be shipped within the United States.
