Reviews - What do customers think about Bible Wars & Weapons?
Tries too hard to be cool Jan 6, 2007
I bought this because I like the idea of books about the Bible that appeal to boys instead of Christianity always being about the soft, gentle side of things. I read one page of it to my son and got rid of it. The whole demeanor of it is just trying too hard to be cool and conversational, at the expense of something real and interesting and meaningful. It's not that I have a problem with people doing something fun with books about the Bible (check out Hey! That's Not What the Bible Says! and Mike Thaler's excellent series), there just isn't much substance here.
