Bible Stories Gone Crazy! by Josh Edwards Illustrated by Emiliano Migliardo - REVIEWED

About the Book:
Eight Bible stories are depicted in bright color and comic, cartoony illustrations. There is a sentence or two explaining the scene at the top, and then details to spot, mistakes to find, and questions to answer along the sides of the picture, such as, "Did Noah's workmen REALLY have power tools?" and "How many rabbits are in the picture?" Children will love scouring the illustrations to find the answers and spot more amusing details in the busy artwork of Emiliano Migliardo.

The stories are Noah and His Great Ark, Moses Crossing the Red Sea, Joshua and the Fall of Jericho, David and Goliath, Daniel and the Lions, Jonah and the Big Fish, Feeding the 5,000, and Man Through the Roof.

My Thoughts:

My boys are far past the age of reading books together, but this book is one that we all had loads of fun with!  Me included!  We sat down and searched out all of the pictures and clues, we laughed, we spent time together and we were renewed in our belief that God has and is still moving His people to use their gifts in obedience to Him that others may come to know the truth of His Word!

Bible Stories Gone Crazy takes eight stories from God’s Word and turns them into a visual treasure hunt!  The great thing is that the scripture reference is right there on the page, and you can read the story from God’s Word as you look for the questions posed by the author about the story.  The questions lead you on a treasure hunt, but also leads you to examine the details of the story according to the Bible.

This is a tremendous teaching tool that will engage adults and children alike and will offer hours of time spent together around God’s Word!  You can limit your time to one story, or cover all eight at once, but I guarantee you will return to this book time and time again!  This is a win- win!  For everyone!! I highly recommend this book!
