Publisher's Description

You know them as hilarious, boisterous skits that get kids involved, whether they're hamming up front, or in the audience cheering for the good guys, hissing the bad guys, and getting nearly as animated as the onstage actors. Better yet, these no-rehearsal skits are comic takes on 24 classic Bible stories, from Babel to Zacchaeus. Use these skits to take your students into or out of your Bible lesson -- for the humor never buries the central message of the Bible passage. Inside you'll find 12 Old Testament and 12 New Testament stories -- like these: - The First Tongue Twister (the Tower of Babel) - Josephine's Dream (Joseph and his brothers) - The Young and the Hairless (Samson and Delilah) - Dave, the Wave, and the Giant Kahuna (David and Goliath) - Dances with Lions (Daniel) - World Serious: The Empire Strikes Out (the temptation of Jesus) - Good Sam, the Levis, and Judas Priest (parable of the Good Samaritan) - Showdown at Tombstone (Jesus and the demon-possessed man) Unchurched teenagers who can't tell Samson from Solomon, or long-time youth group kids -- everyone will love not merely hearing or reading Bible stories, but doing them. Welcome to more than a year's worth of slapstick, pratfalls, and melodrama. These Bible-story skits are anything but solemn, but they'll make Bible stories memorable for your students.

    We used these skits for 1-6 grades. It was one of their favorite breakouts in Bible School. For the Parent night we surprised the audience and used adults to play parts. The kids and adults alike loved it. Great ideas for bringing stories to life ... hit a home run.

    On the flip side of the coin... Somewhat surprised to find various words, attitudes, and behaviors as part of 'Bible based' skits that are created to give a Godly message about Godly behavior. Changed some words in a few, had to skip many of the skits. Someone/s has/have great talent for bringing God's stories to life for all ages. Wish the purity of some of the messages had not been compromised with some of the world's words and behaviors. I understand there could be an unsaved audience to be reached... but you don't have to speak their language to do that ... God's word and attitude can stand on It's own.

    Bottom line... I bought the e-version of the book because I needed something overnight and thought we could pick the skit that went with the character we were studying (the book has so many to choose from) and go with it. Ended up spending quite a bit of time searching for skits we could use without having to modify. Or modifying .

    It did give me a reminder though... to pray and ask the Lord what I am doing in my life that I have compromised His holiness.

    Thank you... 5 stars for bringing some things to light. Another skit in the making ??
