Bizarre Christmas Bible Stories
Angels? So, they sang. Shepherds? They listened. A stable? So, it stunk. It's not enough to get the Bible into your kids, we need to get our kids into the Bible. Get your kids hooked on the Bible with stories about Priest's underwear, an angel named Harry, and the Kingmakers. These stories aren't just for bedtime - they create a thirst that lasts a lifetime!
This cool, little stocking-stuffer book contains five rarely heard Bizarre Christmas Bible Stories with color pictures for each chapter. For children, the excitement of the Bible is often its unpredictability. You never know what the omniscient God is going to do-unless, of course, you've heard the story before. Find your kids, their pajamas, and a few minutes of time. They (and you) won't be bored. There are four "Tips" at the end of each chapter, for parents to read with their kids, or for older kids to read on their own. Here's how they work:
So, What Should I Do? Each chapter ends with a personal application
Where Else is this Taught? Other passages from the bible with similar application are listed here
More Notes for the Curious: These are notes to help older children and adults go deeper into each story. Sometimes there are great rabbit trails that just can't make it into the storyline.
Poems: At the very end of each story there is a poem to better understand and remember the truth of the story.
Also, questions are in bold throughout each chapter where, if an adult is reading to a child, you can stop and ask and see what they are thinking. It makes for some terrific discussions!
Bizarre Christmas Bible Stories was written by Dan Cooley to be read by parents to children ages 7 and up, however, older children LOVE reading it for themselves.
