Item description for Bad Kids of the Bible: And What They Can Teach Us by Thomas J. Craughwell...

This collection of twenty-four stories from the Bible focuses on the out-of-control and badly-behaved grown kids, like Cain, Joseph and his brothers, and many more. Through these stories and Biblical quotations you and your family will learn how, and how not to make your relationship with God and each other stronger.

Publishers Description
These are the uber-brats of the Bible, kids who killed, committed incest, sold siblings into slavery, or asked for an enemy's head on a dish. Each of the 28 stories in this book focus on a boy or girl from the Bible whose conduct was the stuff of parents' nightmares. Some of these kids repented. Others did not. Yet whether they turned their lives around or persisted in their wicked ways there are lessons to be learned from these stories that contemporary people can apply to their lives today. The tone of the book is light-hearted, but not irreverent. The idea is to recognize in biblical characters our own family's foibles and failings. Furthermore, it is more interesting to read about rotten kids than about kids who are little angels--it's certainly closer to actual family life. But the bottom line is the Brats of the Bible teach our kids (and their parents) what NOT to do, and the ones who cleaned up their act show us how we can make improvements in our lives, too.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bad Kids of the Bible: And What They Can Teach Us?

humorous but never irreverent  Jan 21, 2010
I bought this book for my 11-year-old nephew for Christmas. It is a good introduction to some of the well-known and especially the lesser-known young people of the Bible. It shows that no one is perfect and that actions have consequences. I like the breezy tone of the book--I am not sure children will see all the wit, but adults certainly will.
