Welcome to The Shaun Tabatt Show! In this episode I speak with Jonathan Schkade about his new book Not-So-Nice Bible Stories: Gory Deaths (Concordia Publishing House, 2016).
About the Book: Drowned. Burned. Hanged. Crushed. Stabbed. Eaten by dogs. This is not a book of fairy tales. Happy endings are few and far-between.
This is a book of history—true tales of people who lived and died long ago.
These 18 chapters give you cool trivia, factoids, and things to think about, like Why the story is in the Bible How it can guide your life What it shows you about Jesus These TRUE stories show how God’s justice smashes the sinful, the sinister, the sneaky; and they show how Jesus conquers death and gives you life.
About the Author: Jonathan Schkade lives in Jefferson City, Missouri, where he works as an editor and author. He enjoys reading, cooking, procrastinating, and staring awestruck at his wife and daughters.
