Bible Freaks and Geeks
$7.99
Written in the humorous, gross style of the 2:52 line, designed to ignite the interest of boys.Bible Freaks & Geeks--This book helps boys to grow smarter, stronger, deeper, and cooler by showing them how hurtful name-calling can be. In a fun, engaging format, the book highlights biblical examples of machos, jocks, goons, wonks, slackers, airheads, and more. Through the biblical examples of characters who some would likely classify in these terms today, we learn what kind of people God has used throughout history to accomplish his plans. In Bible Freaks & Geeks we also discover that not only are people wrongfullylabeled today by such general and unkind terms, but that even in ancient times, humans exhibited the same traits that we see today. Readers will learnmore about the characters in the Bible, and also how to discern between descriptive labels and harmful stereotypes.Seriously Sick Bible Stuff--This book gives boys the lowdown on what living in ancient Israel was really like. In fun and engaging 2:52 style, it offers humorous, gross facts about day-to-day life in Bible times, shattering any illusions boys may have about how much easier things would have been if they had lived during Jesus' day. This book exposes boys to the truth: sleeping next to goats (and cleaning up after them in the morning!), eating food that was spiced because it was spoiled, drinking water that was probably unsafe, and using bathroom accommodations that made outhouseslook good. Not to mention the tough, boring work kids had to do! Seriously Sick Bible Stuff helps boys understand the people of Jesus' time--making them grateful for the life God has given them today.

Wacky Bible Blockheads: Can You Believe It?

Wacky Bible Blockheads: Can You Believe It?
$9.99

Not everyone in the Bible was as wise as King Solomon.

You'd think Samson would have figured out his wife was out to get him after the first two attempts on his life. When God says, "Don't look," Lot's wife makes a pretty good example of why you should listen. Even David, a "man after God's own heart," made some pretty "blockhead" moves. From the IT'S A FACT series, Wacky Bible Blockheads highlights "duh" moments in the Old and New Testaments, some you may know, others that may surprise. Astound your friends and maybe even inspire someone to pick up the Bible and explore these facts for themselves. Completely, 100% historically accurate.
