The Awesome Book of Unusual Bible Heroes for Kids
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.
