Publisher's Description

Skeletons that come back to life? A mysterious army that is heard but never seen? These are just a few of the 26 tales found in the Bible that give young readers and their parents some gross, odd, and strangely fascinating accounts too often overlooked in Scripture. Illustrations.


This book does its best to convince young Christians that the Good Book really is a good book, filled with fascinating tales of talking donkeys, invisible armies, wicked kings and clever queens. For the most part, it succeeds. It's more than a collection of scriptural oddities. Each chapter has a moral lesson spelled out: Don't lie to God, friendship is worth the risk, that sort of thing. The biblical citation for each weird tale is given (You can look it up!) and each chapter ends with suggestions for further Scripture reading. Young readers will be comfortable with the conversational tone. ("Absalom's army was having a rotten day.") There are bracketed notes for parents, including tips on using the stories as teaching tools.
A caution: There's lots of violence, albeit highly sanitized. Assassinations, bloody battles, the wrath of an angry God ... Hey, it's the Bible! In a couple of spots the author, pastor of a Bible church in Winnipeg, Canada, takes theological license, rather awkwardly introducing Jesus into explanations of Old Testament tales.
All in all, though, kids will find this book much more engaging than most of what they hear in Sunday sermons.
-Bruce Tomaso, The Dallas Morning News, April 23, 2004
Featuring stories in the Bible that readers don't usually look for, Bizarre Bible Stories hooked me onto reading the Bible again. This book inspired me to learn things about God that I didn't know before.
Good for ages seven and up, Bizarre Bible Stories is easy to read as it translates Bible verses into kid's language. Describing Achan Cooley wrote, "He wasn't bad because he sinned; he was bad because he covered it rather than admitting it."
Each chapter begins with a scripture passage, and a "So What" which is a one line explanation of the lesson. After the story is a section titled, "Remember: You've Got His Word on It" with related scripture verses. Stories about flying pigs, walking bones, Balaam, Joshua, Herod and Philemon are in these 26 chapters.
As an 11-year-old who loves to read, I like that I could easily read and understand Bizarre Bible Stories. I was reminded that God is so much more powerful than we are, He is more powerful than Satan and his demons, and that no matter how much trouble we put God and ourselves through, He still loves us and gives us a chance of turning to Him.
A colorful hardback, Bizarre Bible Stories is good for kids who are fired up about God and kids who don't know who He is.
-Estee Wells, Christian Book
