Listen to the Podcast – Gospel Centered Bible Resources from Truth78
Sally Michael is a co-founder of Truth78 and has authored curricula and books that are all marked by a passion for developing God-centered resources for the spiritual development of children. For 16 years, Sally served as minister for children at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, under the leadership of John Piper and her husband, David.
In this episode, we discuss discipling the next generation and specifically talk about Sally’s new books – More Than A Story: Exploring the Message of the Bible with Children.
Inside More Than a Story
What is More Than a Story?
More Than a Story is a new kind of Bible resource for children (ages 6-12)—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.
