Bible Stories for Grownups Oct 15, 2002
Wow! Excellent book! I have read this aloud to my kids...we are all amazed at the content...even though I've been a Christian for 20 years, I am learning an amazing amount of information and love the tie-ins from Old Testament stories and how they relate and foreshadow Christ! What a great addition to our Home schooling...our discussions are incredible and so appropriate for the here and now! ALL of the children take part...from a six to 15 years of age! WHO SAYS THIS IS FOR GROWNUPS?!! Great book!
Plain Language with lots of Ooohs & Ahhhs Sep 18, 2002
The Old Testament comes alive as 28 Bible Stories segue into the New Testament, and into our lives today. Each "Story" is divided into three bite size parts:
(1)"The Story" is a brief digest of events as they occurred (w/o commentary; covered in 2 or more pages). (2)"The Inside Story" hits the reader with exciting & unexpected bullet points. "WOW, I never knew that", is this section's likely reaction. (3)"Treasures for Life," reveal why God gave the story space in His best seller, and how it can transform our lives into ones of confidence, expectancy and joy.
This book will be a much-appreciated gift for Christians or Non-Christians, as God's word reaches them in a plain-spoken and uncritical way.
