The Bible’s children’s stories are often a child’s first glimpse of God. Recent surveys show that a high percentage of Christian adults still believe these childhood stories to be literally true. But most believers have never heard the adult versions of these stories with their additional detail and background, information that not only enhances their validity but also reveals new insight into the character of God. And for non-believers who’ve dismissed them as fairy tales or fables, this information provides logical reasons to reconsider their decision and open their hearts to God once again. Here, then, are the adult versions of the Bible’s children’s stories, actual occurrences of God’s earliest revelation of Himself to man. For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope (Romans 15:4).
