Heroes and Villains of the Bible: Real Stories, acutal Bible Text compiled by Tama Fortner is a collection of well-known Biblical events. The majority of the text is tacken directly from The International Children's Bible. This is a different kind of book than I was expecting. There are 50 well known figures presented by a short selection of Bible text to read, followed by a short lesson from the story. This book has great illustrations for young readers. Included in the book are 16 Old Testament heroes, 9 Old Testament villains, 17 New Testament heroes and 8 New Testament villains. Overall the book is a good choice for use at home.
