Reviews - What do customers think about Weird & Gross Bible Stuff?
Entertaining May 7, 2004
This is a collection of items from the Bible that include the gross, the weird, and the bizarre, with sections like Gross-cordance, Vomit Verses, Bugs & Insects, Weird Trivia and Bizarre Healings. Some of it, though, is just things like records (longest living--Methusaleh, worst day ever--Job), or sections such as Remarkable Miracles or Laugh Out Loud. Obviously geared toward kids and more likely to appeal to boys, as an adult I still enjoyed the format of the book, with its all-over-the-place organization (as in a magazine) and its language. For example, in the section on Excuses, when it reports on Aaron's fanciful story about the golden calf ("I just melted everybody's jewelry and out came this calf!"), the book responds "'Oh sure! Right, Aaron! Just like that? You sure the tooth fairy didn't make it out of gold fillings?' Moses probably wanted to bust the Ten Commandments over Aaron's head." In the section on Angels is a story entitled, Barbecue, Angel Style (from Judges 6:11-12) and another entitled Note To Self: Don't Talk Back To Angels (from Luke 1:11-20).
These are just a few examples of the types of stories you find in this book. An entertaining presentation of stories from the Bible, while especially appropriate for someone who is into the weird and gross, even someone who is not into that (like me) may find the book enjoyable for its fresh perspective of well-known events from the Bible.
