Rating: 4 stars
Synopsis: Bible Stories for Grown-Ups is a collection of 39 Bible stories written for adults who have little background in the Bible. These stories are told in simple, modern language to be easily understood by anyone who is interested in learning more about what is in the Bible.
From Abraham, to David, to Jesus, and Paul, these stories start at the creation of the world and go into the founding of the Christian church. Whether a first time reader or someone who just wants to refresh their memory of what the Bible holds, you will enjoy this collection of stories.
Review: I'd like to thank the author and NetGalley for providing a copy of the book to me in exchange for an honest review.
Thirty-nine stories from the Bible that we're all relatively familiar with from Sunday school, but they're not watered-down, child versions of them. I really enjoyed reading each story from an adult's perspective, without the extraneous stuff from the Bible. The author successfully condensed each story into a short story version, while keeping all of them important details.
It was nice to have the original text reference so that I could go back and re-read from the Bible.
