Big battles, epic journeys, superhuman strength … and evil plans to take down the world. While this may sound like the plot to the latest movie blockbuster, the fact is powerful heroes and evil villains were fighting it out long before the first caped crusader appeared. Bible Heroes and Bad Guys presents the most impressive good guys of biblical times who used their faith and heart to take on vile enemies and evil itself. From David and Samson to Elijah, Paul, and more—as well as baddies they faced, like Ahab and Herod—each short chapter gives young readers quick facts about the man, what he did, and what we can learn to become stronger and smarter in our own daily battles.
Bible Heroes and Bad Guys:

- contains large text and an open page design, along with lots of detailed illustrations, making it perfect for reluctant readers
- is part of the 2:52 series of books, which focuses on becoming more like Jesus as described in Luke 2:52
