Heroes and Villains of the Bible
I know this a childrens version of the bible events, but I think that anyone would enjoy reading this book. My daughter having a somewhat short attention span, did like the book but I have to say with only a few pictures, it didn't completely captivate her. But she said it has some nice pictures, like of Eve being tempted by the Serpent. It talks of the very beginning and lots more events that are in the bible, like how Cain took the life of his younger brother.
"Cain was the first son ever born. But instead of being a good example, he was the worst example. Cain let anger take over his heart. And then he chose to do something that could never be undone."
It tells the story of Noah's Ark, how it rained for 150 days and then dried up in over another 150 days. How he sent a dove out to see if the earth was dried up enough.
"I will never again destroy all living things by floodwaters. A flood will never again destroy the earth. . . .I am putting my rainbow in the clouds. It is the sign of the agreement between me and the earth."
A very great read.

The Bible is packed with stories of courageous people who loved and served God, and how He used them to do great things in the world. It is also filled with villainous people who disobeyed God and did horrible things. Heroes and Villains of the Bible encourages its readers to aspire to become great, courageous, and heroic servants of God, and reject all that is evil in the world.
