Bob Hartman's Bible Baddies by Bob Hartman

Retold with Bob Hartman's insight and wit, some of these tales are funny, others are sinister. And some feature reformed baddies. Their dastardly deeds, pride, ruthlessness and misuse of power are vividly recreated. There are also 'come-uppance' stories and, last but not least, those showing God's compassion for the worst of `baddies'. 'Baddies' include Pharoh, David, Jonah, Herod, Zacchaeus, Pilate, Peter, Jacob, Goliath, Judas and Paul. '...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.' The Bookseller
