Bulging muscles, towering height, and earth-rattling footsteps … while it might sound like a description for the big green guy in the movies and comics, these words actually apply to the many giants found throughout the Bible who were at times just as angry, almost as strong, and prone to wanting to smash things when it came to battles against the Israelites. In Big Bad Bible Giants, the amazing facts (and myths) behind the giants of the Bible are explored in kid-friendly language, alongside large illustrations that show what these towering antiheroes may have looked like. From surprising-yet-accurate information on their diets, where they came from, and just how immense their weapons and appetites really were, the gigantic battles and wars against these men will have kids looking at the Old Testament in a completely new way.
