Saben, Megan

Pricing details
$16.32
$17.95 MSRP

A picture book about resurrection and future hope.

Something Better Coming is not only about the resurrection of Jesus Christ, but also the promise and blessings that flow from it!

Christ raised the dead to life during his ministry, demonstrating his power over uncertainty, anxiety, and hopelessness in a fallen world. These miracles foreshadowed own resurrection, which is the climax, but not the end of the redemptive story. The triumph of Jesus Christ over the grave directs our eyes forward to eternal security for all whose trust is in him.

 

Westminster Bookstore Note: This book contains cartoon or artistic images of Jesus. There are many people in our constituency who, in a sincere effort to honor the second commandment, refrain from the use of any kind of drawings or pictures of Jesus, even if not intended for a worship context. Out of respect for those who take this position, we have sought to add a note to books in our children’s category which have drawings or depictions of Jesus so that they can factor that into their buying decisions, as they would if they could inspect the books physically.

Megan Saben is a follower of Jesus Christ, a wife, and a mother of five boys. She is associate editor for Redeemed Reader and lives with her family in south central Virginia.

Ryan Flanders is a husband and father of nine who loved the Lord Jesus Christ and his boy, the church. Ryan and his family live in the foothills of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains.

Endorsements (${ productEndorsements.length })

“True hope is not blind; it is confidently rooted in God’s perfect track record of faithfulness. True hope looks back on what God has already done and says, ‘You think that’s great? Well, just you wait….’ Something Better Coming celebrates this truth by giving families a glimpse of the wondrous majesty of a Savior who has power over life and death, while also pointing us forward in hopeful anticipation of what He has in store for us—the promise of eternal life with Him…Powerful, emotional, and profoundly good.”

Scott James

author of The Littlest Watchman, Where Is Wisdom? and God Cares for Me

“In Something Better Coming, Megan Saben has produced an extraordinary account of the gospel. While it's presented in a format intended for children, the message - Jesus has conquered death - is equally profound for adults. Saben's work is a wonderful expansion on and explanation of the final words of the Apostles' Creed - we ‘look for the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting.’ Ryan Flanders' illustrations are an excellent pairing with the text - simple in color, but full of intricate details which capture the essential humanness of the stories - both the emotional experience of death and the wonder of resurrection. Ultimately, the pairing of text and image in Something Better Coming makes for a beautiful presentation of a challenging subject - handling the topics of death and the crucifixion in a child-appropriate way without oversimplifying or glossing over the hard parts.”

Danielle Hitchen

“Megan Saben’s picture book is a beautiful blending of biblical story told in verse and emotive illustrations in soft sands and sky blues by Ryan Flanders. Joyous expectation rises with every turn of the page, and readers can’t help but join in the happy refrain, ‘There’s something better coming!”

Amanda Cleary Eastep

author of the Tree Street Kids series and senior editor at Moody Publishers

“Something better is coming! Author and illustrator tie together three stories from the gospels to underscore the Great Story of the resurrection, and the living promise of our gospel hope. That enduring theme makes this a book for families to read and treasure.”

Janie B. Cheaney

Senior Writer, WORLD News Group

“Truly the best picture book on the resurrection I’ve ever encountered.”
