Story Box Bible Tales
25 Stories from the Bible for Sharing, Making and Living
by Eve Lockett
Publisher:Barnabas imprint of BRF
This is a book which I think has possibilities for use well beyond the stated audience of 6-10 year olds. The entwining of Bible stories and themes with modern life and attitudes, as in ‘Breaking the Rules’ would resonate with a wide age range. There seems potential, for example, for using the book at a Quiet Day, putting together themes/stories on a similar line.
The Easter story in particular struck me as one which could be used in a women’s group where those participating did not feel valued, using the Biblical story to tell their story in a way which might feel less threatening. Within the ‘Beginnings and Endings’ the 1 Corinthians 13 section could be adapted quite easily for a Marriage Preparation Class.
Also good fun for 6-10 year olds!
