Jesus is the hero of this story. Laverton tells his story in such a way that Jesus’ death and resurrection are important but they are not the end-goal of his mission. The purpose is life with God! Jesus is the first person to live with God again and he has made away for everyone to join him there. In response to the sin that separates us from God, Jesus says, “But I died on the cross to take your sin, so all my friends can now come in.”
Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, and godparents: The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross is a delightful way to share the Gospel with your children. This book immediately became a favorite for us and would be a great gift for any child between the ages of 3 and 7.
