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.

Editorial Reviews


“Silverthorne’s simple, cartoon-style illustrations are as quirky as his narrative style…Silverthorne lightens up the Bible for kids; this book will work best for Christian Bible education to take young people beyond the begats.”
Publishers Weekly


“I especially like Silverthorne’s imaginative dialogue, modernized narrative and captivating illustrations that kept me, an adult, captivated. I know the stories will engage youngster’s imaginations and leave them asking for more as they learn about these exciting and unusual heroes of the Bible.”
—The Midwest Book Review


“I have to say this is one of the best books I have read for children. I recommend that all parents should get this book and let their child read it along with their Bible so they can see the accuracy of the story. Not only will it teach them a lesson, it will also help them to understand the Bible better.”
ReadersFavorite.com


“Years 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…. [he] 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.”

“Awesome!...Divided into short stories, this book makes for great devotional or bedtime reading.”
