Read full description of the books Awkward Moments (Not Found in Your Average) Children's Bible - Vol. 2:STILL NOT FOR KIDS! If you thought our first bestseller was inappropriate for kids, this volume is barely appropriate for adults! More incest, genocide, talking animals, wrestling matches, martyrs, abortion, magic, homosexuality and selficide! What would Jesus do? You might be surprised what His own family thought of Him! From the opening foreword by Evangelical pastor, author, and professor Dan Kimball (of Vintage Faith Church), to the challenging commentaries in the second half of the book, Awkward Moments Children's Bible is much more than an irreverent book for your coffee table! Readers of all faiths will find themselves laughing out loud while being encouraged to think about the Bible in a new way.
Let's be honest - there are some things in the Good Book that are just... awkward! There are verses we'd like to forget or that have been changed throughout the centuries. There are many verses you've never heard before in church, let alone seen in your average children's Bible! Not to mention the verses that have been added over the centuries!
Most people were raised in the faith chosen by their family. Young children learn a few Bible stories taken out of context and accept them without question. (On what basis could they possibly question their parents or church leaders?) After decades of repetition and tradition, it's understandable that we might put our beliefs on auto-pilot and just nod as a pastor repeats the verses and ideas that are already familiar and comfortable to us. It's no wonder that recent studies show an incredible lack of Biblical knowledge among Christians - 55% unable to even name the four Gospels of the New Testament - the very foundation of Christianity!
The Goal? Awkward Moments encourages readers to really understand what is in their Bibles and think for themselves about the context of Biblical teaching. The 32 color illustrations and included commentaries will likely challenge some readers to reflect on how religion continues to shape the lives and culture of future generations. If readers happen to laugh out loud in the mean time - it's just an added bonus!
Skeptical about a verse? Crack open your favorite Bible and read along to share the Good News with friends!
REMEMBER: Don't blame us, it's in the Bible!
Read information about the authorHORUS GILGAMESH was raised Catholic before being “born again” in college when he began following a calling toward full-time ministry. Early on, his efforts were focused on youth evangelism and Biblical literacy around the world. When he was on a missions trip to Africa, a fearless young boy approached, pleading, “Chakula? Maji?“- the Swahili words for “food” and “water.” Unfortunately, Horus had no food or water to offer the poor child – only Bibles.
A few days later, Horus met a humanitarian relief worker from Spain who shared five simple words of wisdom that would change his life forever – “Empty stomachs have no ears.” Horus realized that he was not meeting the very real needs of the people he was hoping to help – he was struggling to finding a purpose in his own life, as a self righteous servant of his Creator.
To many Christians, the most important gift you could ever give to a man is a chance at eternal life through the Gospel of Jesus Christ – the Living Water. But what about this life? There are billions who would give anything for a drink of regular old H2O.
Over the years, Horus became more interested in critical needs and social justice initiatives, helping those at risk of severe poverty, disease, or violence. The pain and suffering he saw first hand led him to be more and more troubled by God’s apparent disregard for the children of His creation. This led Horus to years of re-studying the Bible for himself, away from the “rose-colored” teachings of any church or seminary. He never returned.
