Andy Robb, author of the Boring Bible series, has collected together the barmiest passages of Scripture in 50 Barmiest Bible Stories. Andy?s witty and conversational style, plus colourful illustrations, brings God?s Word to life for children.
Among the collection are the stories of how the universe kicked off; how the Israelites escaped from Egypt and spent forty years grumbling in the desert; how Jesus was God?s chosen man to sort out the mess humankind had made of the world; what the good and bad kings of Israel got up to. Each story has a cliffhanger ending and a Bible passage to look up to find out what happened next.
The Bible tells us about some extraordinary events, and this book will help to introduce readers to the extraordinary God who lies behind those events.

"From the author of the ‘Boring Bible’ series comes ‘50 Barmiest Bible Stories’ a book that blow your mind with its bible-related barminess! From laws about not cutting hair or beards to David’s near escape while playing the harp for King Saul, the barmiest of bible stories are presented in this book - one sure to be a hit with children aged 5 - 10."
"Andy Robb brings to life bite-sized Bible stories aimed to make the Bible less daunting for primary-school-age children."
"These vibrant and down-to-earth books provide entertaining ... encouragement to discover an interest in scripture." – Church Times, 12 June 2009.
"This book has opened a whole new world to our 10 year old son. Up until now he was just reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid but this book has really grabbed his imagination. He carries it around with a bible and looks up the linked bible verses - brilliant! This book is really well written and brilliantly designed. We would whole heartily recommend it." - Reader Review of ‘50 Craziest Bible Stories’
Christian writer and cartoonist Andy Robb is the creator of amazingly weird and wonderful versions of stories from the Bible. Andy is the creator of ‘Boring Bible’ and the ’50 Bible Stories Series’, which includes 50 of the most weirdest, craziest, jammiest, barmiest, goriest and wildest stories in the Bible.
Retelling the scripture of the Bible, Andy Robb has a unique creative flair that allows his readers to experience the Bible in an undiscovered way, making it fun, humorous and a bit wacky! He is an inspiration to the younger generation, giving children an opportunity to experience God and the Bible in fun ways.
A single story is usually presented across a double page spread, told in Andy Robb’s trademark style, with a funny picture or cartoon that is related to the content. At the end of the story - which is left unfinished - a Bible verse or passage is given so that the reader can find the ending of the story in the Bible. The result is that young readers are given bible stories in an entertaining and memorable way, with direct links to God’s word, so that they read and understand for themselves.
With six titles in the series, each with the same format of 50 bible stories, there’s a total of 300 stories for your child to read and enjoy. If you haven’t yet given your child one of the books in this series, I recommend that you give it a try - they’re relatively cheap - because you could be onto a winner!
EDEN ARTICLE: Feature Stories - Getting the Hump (22) & Double-Talking Disciple (39)
GETTING THE HUMP
The Story - is the parable of Camel and the Eye of the Needle, told by Jesus.
Where In The Bible? - readers are directed to Mark, chapter 10.
What Do We Learn? - we learn what it is fundamentally important to hold onto - not material possessions or wealth, but faith in God.
The Story - is where Peter objects to Jesus saying that He will be arrested and executed.
Where In The Bible? - readers are directed to Matthew, chapter 16.
What Do We Learn? - we learn that Jesus understands the whole situation whereas we might only understand a little bit, also, we learn that God doesn’t always work in ways that we expect.
A prophet who became a bear’s lunch, a king with a whopping 1000 wives to keep happy, a bunch of rebels who were zapped by fire from heaven... plenty of totally barmy things went on in Bible times! In this book you’ll find fifty of the barmiest!
Although the Bible is full of really exciting stuff, it can sometimes be difficult to know where to start. That’s why Andy Robb has done the hard work for you, selecting and retelling in his own zany style some of the best-known bits.
Among this collection you’ll find the stories of how the universe got kicked off, the adventures of the Israelites through the wilderness, what the good and bad kings of Israel got up to and God’s mission accomplished, sending Jesus to earth.
Each story has a cliffhanger ending - and a short Bible passage to look up so you can find out what happened next. All this plus some whacky, colourful cartoons - what more could you want?
