Overview Boys today?Christian kids included?constantly label each other, and do it almost without thinking. This book explores the meanings behind these names and gives humorous examples from the Bible that either explains their accuracy or disproves them as stereotypes.
Publishers Description Written in the humorous, gross style of the 2:52 line, designed to ignite the interest of boys. Bible Freaks and Geeks---This book helps boys to grow smarter, stronger, deeper, and cooler by showing them how hurtful name-calling can be. In a fun, engaging format, the book highlights biblical examples of machos, jocks, goons, wonks, slackers, airheads, and more. Through the biblical examples of characters who some would likely classify in these terms today, we learn what kind of people God has used throughout history to accomplish his plans. In Bible Freaks and Geeks we also discover that not only are people wrongfully labeled today by such general and unkind terms, but that even in ancient times, humans exhibited the same traits that we see today. Readers will learn more about the characters in the Bible, and also how to discern between descriptive labels and harmful stereotypes. Seriously Sick Bible Stuff---This book gives boys the lowdown on what living in ancient Israel was really like. In fun and engaging 2:52 style, it offers humorous, gross facts about day-to-day life in Bible times, shattering any illusions boys may have about how much easier things would have been if they had lived during Jesus day. This book exposes boys to the truth: sleeping next to goats (and cleaning up after them in the morning ), eating food that was spiced because it was spoiled, drinking water that was probably unsafe, and using bathroom accommodations that made outhouses look good. Not to mention the tough, boring work kids had to do Seriously Sick Bible Stuff helps boys understand the people of Jesus time---making them grateful for the life God has given them today. ED STRAUSS By his early teen years, Ed Strauss was writing several novels at once. He had a dresser for his clothing, but Ed had different priorities. The bottom drawer held his comic books---mostly Spider-Man, Tarzan, and Turok. The middle drawer overflowed with his story notes, research, and maps. The top drawer was stuffed with clothing. On a nearby shelf was Ed s favorite reading material, an encyclopedia set he had won on a nationwide kiddie show. Ed lives in Chilliwack, BC."

Excellent devotion for boys Jan 21, 2010
This series is an excellent resource for giving boys a unique way to study Bible truths. My son loves the books so much, I rarely have to remind him to study his devotion. I often find him early in the morning, still under the warmth of the covers, reading this or another 2:52 book. Great buy!Bible Freaks & Geeks (2:52)
