Publisher’s Description

Easy–to–Use Devotional Helps Parents Share the Living Gospel Story!
Old Story New makes it easy for parents to stay on the life–giving course of sharing the gospel with their family. This second volume in Marty Machowski’s family devotional series, Old Story New continues the gospel story begun in the Old Testament devotional, Long Story Short. Using the same effective ten–minute–a–day structure, it connects children to living gospel truth through 78 New Testament stories. Simple discussion questions (and answers) for each day’s devotion help children understand and connect the story of salvation with their own lives. Old Story New, part of the Gospel Story for Kids program (gospelstoryforkids.com), is suitable for children from preschool through high school.

Includes a Foreword by Tedd Tripp

“Marty Machowski has done it again! This book, along with the earlier Old Testament devotional book, Long Story Short, is another masterful devotional book for families. It is simple without being shallow. It is theologically robust without being pedantic. It is comprehensive without being overwhelming. Best of all, it is doable for busy parents with children.”
– Dr. Tedd Tripp, Pastor; conference speaker; best–selling author, Shepherding a Child’s Heart

Long Story Short and Old Story New are the best materials for family devotions I’ve ever seen. If you’re looking for something careful, creative, and Christ–centered—without being corny, confusing, or condescending—look no further. Pastors would be wise to buy these books by the boxful and get them into the hands of each family in their church.”
– Justin Taylor, Vice President of Book Publishing, Crossway; blogger, Between Two Worlds

“Marty Machowski “gets’ families. Even more importantly, he knows how to connect them to the Bible with simple, relatable New Testament studies that make much of Jesus in every lesson. If you want your kids to see the Savior through his Word, spend some time in this exciting new devotional.”
– Dave Harvey, Church Planting and Church Care, Sovereign Grace Ministries; author, When Sinners Say I Do: Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage

“Finding time for family devotions is a high hurdle. But finding something enjoyable to do as a family that also illuminates God’s Word can be an even higher impediment. In this wonderfully helpful book, you’ve found the answer to the second challenge. And Marty’s clear writing and creativity will help you make the time (even if you don’t think you have it) to clear the first hurdle. It’s my pleasure to recommend this book and the devotional experience it provides to you and your family.”
– Dr. Robert Wolgemuth, author, The Most Important Place on Earth: What a Christian Home Looks Like and How to Build One

“So much of the family devotional material available today does little more than use the Bible to teach half–truths and full–out moralism. The reason my wife and I love Marty Machowski’s books and the reason they have become important resources as we seek to raise our children in ‘the discipline and instruction of the Lord,’ is their consistent focus on the big picture of the Bible’s big story. Old Story New is yet another wonderful resource that we gladly commend and look forward to reading with our children.”
– Tim Challies, Pastor; author; blogger

“The church wants parents to lead their homes spiritually; the parents don’t know how. Marty Machowski’s Old Story New is the answer for both church and parents. Marty has invested his time in the best way possible helping parents shepherd their children with more than stories and morals, but with the central theme of Jesus illuminated clearly in every story.”
– Scott Thomas, Pastor, The Journey Church, St Louis, MO; author, Gospel Coach: Shepherding Leaders to Glorify God

“Marty Machowski’s Old Story New, like Marty’s children’s ministry curriculum and Old Testament devotional, Long Story Short, is a great asset to parents, pastors, and children’s ministry teachers. I am particularly excited about the way Marty connects each New Testament story to the gospel of Christ. Marty’s book will help your kids learn to see Jesus as the center of every part of the Bible. And what might God do with such a generation raised to rightly handle the word of truth, the gospel of our salvation?”
– Josh Blount, Pastor, Living Faith Church

“Nurturing our children requires us to gain the attention of their hearts as soon as possible. So, what should we use to seize their interest? Thinly veiled morality tales that leave our children wandering in a desert of demands? In Old Story New, Christ is the beacon that captures the imagination of our children. Let this beautiful book lead your children out of the desert and into the oasis of Jesus, so he can quench their thirsty hearts.”
– David E. Tate, Pastor, Manor Presbyterian Church
