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.

This book is a great read for older children and pre-teens. The author has selected several lesser known Bible characters (as well as a few more common ones) and told their stories. The stories are written on a pre-teen level, and in some cases have been altered to fit that audience. (The case in point being that the story of Rahab leaves out the fact that she was a prostitute.) However, the stories do maintain their Biblical integrity, in spite of the characters saying "Whatever" a good deal and there being a lot of eye rolling going on. I feel that this book is great way to introduce children to some lesser known Bible characters. The stories are Biblically accurate, and will no doubt pique an iterest in learning more about these and other Bible characters. The only complaint I have about this book is the illustrations. The illustrations are stick figures style and lack detail. I would have liked to see more detailed drawings; maybe in comic-book style and not the basic stick figures. Over all, this is a fantastic book that I believe would be enjoyed by boys and girls alike. The stories are Biblically accurate and open a door to more in depth Bible study.
