Heroes and villains aren’t only found on the movie screen and in comic books. In this easy-to-read book with bite-sized chapters and large black-and-white illustrations on almost every page, kids 8 and up can explore over thirty real-life good guys and terrible villains of the Bible who discovered truth and justice always win. With a focus on action and adventure—and solid biblical facts—the good, bad, and ugly men of the Bible come alive.

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.

About the Author

Growing up, Rick Osborne really liked Superman. Superman did what was right, he did cool things that other people couldn’t do, and he never quit. The Bible is full of great Superman-type stories where God helps good guys battle evil guys with his awesome supernatural help. By telling these stories, Rick loves to help boys see the real-life superhero that God wants each of them to be. Rick lives with his family up north in Canada, closer to where Superman built his fortress.
