So you think you know all about Jonah and the whale? Tired of Noah's ark? Bored by David and Goliath? Then get ready for wild, wacky, and weird stories you'd be surprised to find in Scripture. But beware: It's not your parents' storybook!
Skeletons that come back to life? Talking animals? A mysterious army that is heard but never seen? An evil queen that meets a horrible (and gory) death? What is this, the plot of a science fiction epic? Hardly. These are just a few of the twenty-six tales in Bizarre Bible Stories. Geared toward 9- to 12-year-olds, this offbeat Bible storybook doesn't tell the usual fare: stories of Jonah and the whale, David and Goliath, or Noah and the ark. Instead, it gives young readers and their parents some gross, odd, and strangely fascinating accounts too often overlooked in Scripture. Young readers will love the fun line art at the beginning of each chapter. And parents will love the provocative questions that follow each tale. Whether read for pleasure or used for teaching, Bizarre Bible Stories is sure to fascinate children and adults alike. By the way, did you hear the one about the woman who couldn't hide from a blind man?
Creative, humorous retellings of almost-never-heard Bible stories to hook young readers and get them into the Bible. Ages 9-12."
