Twelve hidden heroes: Old Testament (Book 1)

Rebecca ParkinsonSKU: UHOT2105 ISBN: 9781846252105



Many children and young people dream of becoming rich and famous. Most of them will never fulfil that dream. Sometimes we can become so fascinated by people who appear important that we fail to notice those who work non-stop behind the scenes. The Old Testament is full of mighty heroes who won tremendous battles or carried out amazing tasks. However as you search through the pages of the Bible you discover there are also many 'hidden heroes'. These men and women, boys and girls were willing to stay in the background, largely unnoticed, but their lives made a huge impact on those around them and on the events that occurred. This book looks at twelve people in the Old Testament who may not be well-known but who show clearly that those people who stay in the background are just as important as those in the spotlight, in fact without them the stories would never have happened! The stories show us that, whatever our gifts and abilities, God has a very special plan for our lives.

"love the approach"

Now I have to start this review by admitting I wasn't sure I was going to take to these two books. I thought I knew all about the brave people in the Bible and I didn't think I needed to read about them again in a book all about Bible heroes. So I surprised myself when I started reading, because I simply did not want to stop. I love the approach to these stories. They are not just repeating the Bible and examining who the brave person was and what he/she did, but they are written in a way that takes the reader into the hero' world...The stories are relatively short at approximately five pages each and each one finishes with a few questions to ponder and a Bible reference. These books would be good for teens who are keen to learn more about the characters in the Bible and who might be surprised by some of the lesser known people who were used by God and made a significant difference. The stories are relatively short at approximately five pages each and each one finishes with a few questions to ponder and a Bible reference. best-childrens-books - 30/07/2010 - Jane Finch
