Overview

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

Publishers Weekly
There’s more than Moses in the Bible, and Silverthorne (Surviving When You’re Home Alone) lets Shiphrah and Bartimaeus have their days in the sun in his newest Awesome Bible book. From Jael the heroine to Joash the boy king, the B-list figures in the Bible come to the fore. Silverthorne’s simple, cartoon-style illustrations are as quirky as his narrative style (Ahasuerus begs Esther to tell him her wish: “ ‘The suspense is driving me crazy!’ ”). Silverthorne lightens up the Bible for kids; this book will work best for Christian Bible education to take young people beyond the begats. Ages 8–12. (Feb.) ¦

    The Bible is jam packed full of stories and yet, there are so many that children – and some adults – don’t know. Even the children that attend church regularly.
    Do you know about the heroics of the Egyptian midwives?
    Do you know how a woman is credited with saving Israel’s army when Barak didn’t follow God’s command?
    Has your family discussed the heroism Esther and Rahab?

    Hott Review
    AWESOME! My family thoroughly enjoyed this book. So many times the Bible stories seem to be designed for either girls or boys but these stories encompassed everyone – from the littlest to the eldest.
    While we generally knew these stories this book put them into a different light and reinforced in us how God uses every day people – adults and children, women and men – to fulfill his plans.
    Divided into short stories, this book makes for great devotional or bedtime reading.
