Like Lazarus lying silent in his tomb waiting to be called to life, Bible stories lie dormant within the pages of Scripture awaiting liberation. God's Word sizzles with tales of passionate love, savage hate, and desperate fright. The Bible is bursting with intoxicating adventures told from the heights of mountains to the depths of a whale's belly. Manic-depressive kings, heartbroken fathers, jealous wives, and stubborn prophets permeate the pages of Scripture as a mirror into our modern-day souls. How can we do justice to these tales of tragedy and triumph? How can we teach such captivating stories to our children in a way that touches them? Now we can share our enthusiasm for God's Word in creative ways.
Whether you teach Sunday school, children's church, midweek club or your children at home, the Bible story is central, the heartbeat of teaching God's Word. Crazy Clothesline Characters is a tool for you to share God's Word in an exciting way and a springboard to teach you how to soar into your own imagination. You can incorporate this book into your current curriculum or use each story as a weekly lesson, complete with extension ideas. Some poetic license has been taken in interpreting God's Word for children. Please read the original passage in your Bible before sharing the stories with your class. Prepare with prayer and a life that lives God's Word. He promises to return his Word with a full harvest (Isaiah 55:10-11).
Hebrews 4:12 tells us that the Word of God is living and active. Yet how have we told the Bible stories to our children? By telling them to sit still and listen! The techniques outlined in this book were designed from a child's point of view. We've incorporated children's senses, cognitive development, and energy to touch their emotions so children will remember.
It's my privilege and joy to share these stories and techniques so that you may share them with your children. Variety is the spice of life, so let's get shaking! When object lessons lose their luster and flannel graphs fatigue, open these pages to discover creative new ways to tell that wonderful Bible story. May God use this book as a sword in your hand to sharpen a lackluster presentation, vitalize your ministry, and breathe fresh life into Bible adventure for the children's sake.
Yours for making the teaching about God our Savior vital (Titus 2:10).
