Bible stories, Rabbits--Juvenile fiction, and Animals--Juvenile fiction
One morning, Rabbit discovers a birthday parcel addressed to him. Inside is a Bible and on the flyleaf is written'Read Me'. As he wonders at this odd present a brightly painted gypsy-style caravan hurtles down the road... and narrowly misses him. Rabbit picks up the book and joins the caravan travellers - Fred the horse, Caravan Bear and Whitby (female) the dog. The Animal's Caravan, has echoes of children's classics such as Wind in the Willows and Alice in Wonderland as Rabbit leaves his home to set out on an unexpected journey - a journey to find friendship and make sense of the world around him. He also finds himself on a journey of faith as he and his new friends wrestle with some of the often difficult concepts in the bible, thereby gaining fresh insights and understanding of God's loving involvement and care for the world. The travelling life of the caravan and its occupants provide the opportunity for Rabbit to share these tales with other animals they meet and they join Caravan Bear, Whitby and Freddie in listening - and learning from - the stories. He is frequently interrupted by questions from his listeners, the kind of questions any child - or adult - might ask. The real and often humorous events that happen to Rabbit and his friends are mirrored by the stories from the Bible enabling children to realise that the stories have relevance and meaning today.
Being a religious man, Jack L. Druck, owner and publisher of the Carbondale (PA) Leader daily newspaper, felt children needed help in comprehending the Bible. The writing style in that book, (let us be truthful) is difficult reading. To make comprehension easier-by retelling stories of the Bible in modern conversational language-he embarked on the challenging enterprise, of including photographs of great Bible paintings that hang in museums all over the world! However, he did this in 1929!

Tien dae lank praat Sara nou al met God, die Almagtige. Hiervoor het sy haar donkie opgesaal nadat Abraham met hulle enigste kind, twee slawe en'n bondel vuurmaakhout op'n pakdonkie in die verte verdwyn het. Met die sluier oor haar gesig is sy vrou-alleen by almal in die kamp verby, die woestyn in. Sy, wat so bang is vir die giftige slange en skerpioene van die Negev, het die groot skerpioen naby haar skaars raakgesien toe sy op die grond neergeval en na die onsigbare God begin roep het... In dié roman word Abraham van die Bybel deur sy vrou Sara se oë gesien. Die leser word meegesleur na die Middel-Bronstydperk, na die mense van die sondvloed, na Abraham se stanings en huwelik, sy swakhede en sy geloofspad, en die lewe van sy vrou Sara. En gekonfronteer met die Wese en die werklikheid van God.
In The Unseen Realm, Dr. Michael Heiser examines the ancient context of Scripture, explaining how its supernatural worldview can help us grow in our understanding of God. He illuminates intriguing and amazing passages of the Bible that have been hiding in plain sight. You'll find yourself engaged in an enthusiastic pursuit of the truth, resulting in a new appreciation for God's Word.Why wasn't Eve surprised when the serpent spoke to her?How did descendants of the Nephilim survive the flood?Why did Jacob fuse Yahweh and his Angel together in his prayer?Who are the assembly of divine beings that God presides over?In what way do those beings participate in God's decisions?Why do Peter and Jude promote belief in imprisoned spirits?Why does Paul describe evil spirits in terms of geographical rulership?Who are the “glorious ones” that even angels dare not rebuke?After reading this book, you may never read your Bible the same way again.“There is a world referred to in the Scripture that is quite unseen, but also quite present and active. Michael Heiser's The Unseen Realm seeks to unmask this world. Heiser shows how important it is to understand this world and appreciate how its contribution helps to make sense of Scripture. The book is clear and well done, treating many ideas and themes that often go unseen themselves. With this book, such themes will no longer be neglected, so read it and discover a new realm for reflection about what Scripture teaches.”—Darrell L. Bock, Executive Director for Cultural Engagement, Senior Research Professor of New Testament Studies, Howard G. Hendricks Center for Christian Leadership and Cultural Engagement“‘How was it possible that I had never seen that before?'Dr. Heiser's survey of the complex reality of the supernatural world as the Scriptures portray it covers a subject that is strangely sidestepped. No one is going to agree with everything in his book, but the subject deserves careful study, and so does this book.”—John Goldingay, David Allan Hubbard Professor of Old Testament, School of Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary

Religion and science, Religion--Controversial literature, Miracles--Biblical teaching, and Bible stories
Fundamentalist Christians often use the Bible as a guide to the natural world, which inevitably leads them to reject much of what modern science says about the universe. But what if we were to use modern science as a guide to the Bible? What might a scientific reading of the Bible tell us not only about religion's claims, but also about nature and our place in it? If God really did part the Red Sea, how might he have engineered such a feat? If Jesus really did raise Lazarus from the dead, under what circumstances might it have happened? In this witty and informative book, science writer Clay Farris Naff brings the miracles of the Bible into sharp focus through the lens of modern science. Whether you're a religious skeptic or a true believer, you'll find what comes into view is mind-bending, thought-provoking, and even amusing—and you'll likely be left even more amazed and entranced by the universe we live in.

Bible stories, Church work with children--India, Christian education of children--India, Children--Religious life, and Spiritual formation
In the Bible, storytelling is an important means to pass on the revelation of God. God repeatedly commanded the people of Israel to tell his mighty acts to the next generation. Invariably churches follow this mandate and use biblical narratives as a means to transmit God's self-revelation to enable transformation. The author, Dr Annie George, listens to the voices of children in order to understand their perceptions of how storytelling of biblical narratives help them in their spiritual formation. Dr George's research highlights the importance of evaluating the impact of biblical narratives from a child's perspective as well as emphasising the need to give the same priority to the spiritual transformation of children as with other areas of study and ministry.

Bible stories, Children's Bibles--United States--History, and Noah's ark
Children's Bibles have been among the most popular and influential types of religious publications in the United States, providing many Americans with their first formative experiences of the Bible and its stories. In Children's Bibles in America, Russell W. Dalton explores the variety of ways in which children's Bibles have adapted, illustrated, and retold Bible stories for children throughout U.S. history. This reception history of the story of Noah as it appears in children's Bibles provides striking examples of the multivalence and malleability of biblical texts, and offers intriguing snapshots of American culture and American religion in their most basic forms. Dalton demonstrates the ways in which children's Bibles reflect and reveal America's diverse and changing beliefs about God, childhood, morality, and what must be passed on to the next generation. Dalton uses the popular story of Noah's ark as a case study, exploring how it has been adapted and appropriated to serve in a variety of social agendas. Throughout America's history, the image of God in children's Bible adaptations of the story of Noah has ranged from that of a powerful, angry God who might destroy children at any time to that of a friendly God who will always keep children safe. At the same time, Noah has been lifted up as a model of virtues ranging from hard work and humble obedience to patience and positive thinking. Dalton explores these uses of the story of Noah and more as he engages the fields of biblical studies, the history of religion in America, religious education, childhood studies, and children's literature.
