Grandpa's Box: Retelling the Biblical Story of Redemption
"It’s a creative presentation of the biblical storyline, as a grandpa uses objects in an old box to retell the stories. I think parents will be surprised at the nuanced biblical theology at play here. I am being instructed as I read."- Justin TaylorSee All
"I’ve begun reading Grandpa’s Box by Starr Meade with our two oldest kids (ages seven and six), and I’m enjoying it as much as they are. It’s one of those books that has tended to fly under the radar, but deserves to be much better known.See All
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.

“It was a wooden box, simply made. ‘I guess you could call it my war chest,’ Grandpa said.
As the children peered into the box, they saw many small figures—animals, people, and objects of all kinds. A number of them were carved from wood.”
Learn along with Marc and Amy as Grandpa shares his stories of the great war we are all fighting. See how his special box of wooden carvings illustrates the wonderful stories of the Bible.
Starr Meade takes children to a deeper understanding of God's plan of redemption told throughout all of Scripture. Each chapter emphasizes what we learn about God, not just what we learn about individual characters in the Bible.
