Lighthearted, funny, and informative biblical readings make up this encouraging tome. This book, the first of two, provides much more than bathroom reading. Short, pithy pieces - including stories, jokes, little-known fact, brief biographies, quotes, word puzzles, and quizzes - offer fascinating information for anyone with a few minutes to spare. Readers will find that not only are they learning something, they're being uplifted from the moments they spend in this book. Features include: Ten People You Didn't Know Were in the Bible, A Salty Start (a surprising cultural practice from biblical days), and God's Plan, and a Bet Gone Wrong (a succinct retelling of Samson's life), along with other trivia, heartwarming stories, and humorous anecdotes.
