Laugh out loud with this tongue-in-cheek approach to learning about the Hebrew Bible.
For many, understanding the difference between Zephaniah and Zechariah or Micah and Malachi is difficult. This book uses humor and simple poetry in the familiar form of limericks to help students grasp and remember basic facts and concepts of the Hebrew Bible. Relevant biblical passages are noted in the book margins. Here's a sample: If a text is an answer of sorts, Common sense to a query exhorts With a homely suggestion: What on earth was the question?
