50 Craziest Bible Stories
by Andy Robb
Publisher:CWR (Crusade for World Revival)
I chuckled at the first sentence of the Introduction which bode well for the rest of the book!
The Introduction is essential reading because it explains all sorts of things, it is not just funny, it matters.
Tantalisingly each story ends on a cliff-hanger. You have to go to your Bible and read the crunch lines for yourself Ė very clever! Someone my age is supposed to know those endings already, but I found myself, story after story, looking the endings up in my Bible. Donít worry what translation of the Bible you are looking at, they all say the same, they just say it in different ways, though some are easier to understand than others.
The colourful cartoon illustrations add to the fun, but donít forget there are serious messages here too. Youíll get indigestion if you try to read them all at once: take them a day at a time and think about what you have read.
