Partner with us to publish a Truth78 Bible resource for children with a global reach.

We’re producing a new kind of Bible resource for children. More Than a Story will take children on a chronological journey through the Bible with a God-centered, gospel-focused, discipleship-oriented, theologically grounded perspective. This family-engaging book, written by Sally Michael and fully illustrated by Fred Apps, will include more than 150 chapters covering key stories, events, people, themes, and literary genres of the Bible. We would be greatly honored if you would  join us in this endeavor. Your tax-deductible gifts will make it possible for children around the world to benefit from this resource as they learn about the life-transforming message of the Bible.

Production Progress

The Old Testament text is written, edited and in finalized form.  New Testament chapters have been written and are in the revision process.  Pencil sketches have been completed for three-fifths of the book and final color illustrations have been completed for one-third of the book.

Now My Eyes See You: The Testing of Job

Here, Sally Michael reads chapter 9, Now My Eye Sees You: The Testing of Job, from More Than a Story. 

What will make More Than a Story different from other children's Bible resources?

  •  A child-friendly, yet accurate presentation of Scripture, emphasizing and clearly explaining essential doctrines of the Christian faith.
  • More than 150 chapters covering key stories, events, people, themes, and literary genres of the Bible.
  • The historical, progressive redemptive storyline of Scripture interwoven and carefully highlighted as children move chronologically through the biblical narrative, culminating in the person and work of Christ.
  • Broad use of the actual text of Scripture.
  • A serious and grave portrayal of man’s sin and desperate need for a Savior.
  • The stories will invite interaction with the child about the truths the story reveals, the key themes it reinforces, and the overarching understanding of God’s plan of salvation.
Global Potential 

This book has tremendous potential for global impact. Truth78 has a number of curriculum translation projects in process in several different language groups. However, it can take years to get our entire scope and sequence translated. More Than a Story  will likely now become the resource that partners will prioritize for new translation initiatives within a language group.

While the teaching found in our curricula involves a greater depth of comprehension, More Than a Story  will be sufficiently comprehensive and robust to lay a solid foundation of biblical truth for those who have few or no resources at all for the instruction of children. We are collaborating with translation partners and looking for financial partners who will help fund the translation and publication of this resource for specific language groups.
