Just Because takes children on a journey through the Bible. It gives them an exciting bird's-eye-view of God's plan unfolding as He prepares the world for the coming of Jesus Christ. Throughout the story Satan is watching out for the child who will "crush his head," (Genesis 3) and he endeavors to stop God's plan from unfolding. The reader knows who that special child is, and the story especially opens up the insights that point to Jesus throughout the Old Testament, such as the symbols of Passover and prophecies. Each chapter takes about twenty minutes to read and ends with a short Biblical lesson. Just Because was originally written to be read to un-churched children in secular schools about twenty years ago. Since then teachers in New Zealand, Australia, and Cuba have used it to grow, and deepen children's faith in Jesus Christ and the Bible. Kids love it.
