Kids often hear Sunday school lessons about Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, and Jesus. But what about Ehud, Deborah, Jonathan, and some of the other lesser-known but equally colorful heroes of the Bible? Popular children's author and illustrator Sandy Silverthorne uses hilarious drawings and modern-day settings to introduce kids to some of the everyday people God has used in amazing ways. Each story includes an age-appropriate devotional that ties a life lesson to the character and helps kids apply what they learn to their own lives.
These tongue-in-cheek but historically accurate retellings will help readers (8 to 12 years old) discover some of the hidden gems in the Bible. Even "reluctant readers" will become immersed in these stories and enjoy watching the way God can turn anyone into a surprising and unusual hero in His plan to reach the world.

VeraNorth CarolinaAge: Over 65Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 58-12 Year olds Bible Heroes for DevotionalMarch 18, 2012VeraNorth CarolinaAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3Years ago, our pastor who loved the children in the church, said that he wanted the kids to have super heroes from the Bible and not heroes from the movies, comic books, or TV. Sandy Silverthorne obviously has the same idea.
Sunday school lessons about major Bible figures are frequently taught: Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, and of course, Jesus. Lesser-known but important heroes in the Bible also abound: Ehud, Deborah, Jonathan. And Sandy Silverthorne retells the Biblical account in colorful, tongue-in-check language that is historically accurate but that captures the interest of the 8 to 12 year old child.
Line drawings illustrate each story adding interest that would appeal to the young pre-teen. Each re-telling of the character's story includes a devotional that links the character's life lesson to an application for the child to learn. Scriptures used are from the NKJV.
