Bible Baddies: Bible Stories as You've Never Heard Them Before Summary
Here are ten Bible stories as they have never been told before, featuring a selection of famous, infamours and little-known-but-wicked biblical characters. Some, such as greedy Gehazi, are funny. Others, like power-mad Herod are sinister. And some, such as Zacchaeus, are reformed baddies. Their dastardly deeds, pride, ruthlessness and misuse of power are vividly recounted with pace and humour (as appropriate). Some are good 'come-uppance' stories, others show God's redemptive love and compassion to the worst of 'baddies'. 'It has the same appeal as the Horrible Histories series and serves as a brilliant introduction to the Bible for children who might otherwise ignore it. Of all the books featured, this is the one for me.' The Bookseller 'Surprisingly gripping reading for 8-11 yera olds...a kind of pick and mix of biblical villains.' Junior Education ...catchily titled and vividly jacketed...Hartman is interested in those whose badness sits alongside their goodness, as well as those whose disregard for right and wrong makes them the biggest baddies of them all.
