Gather Round, Children

illustrated stories from the bibleIllustrated Stories From The Bible, by Paul John Farrell and illustrated by Kathy Demchuck. According to the Amazon product discription, stories include, Elisha and the Bears; Jephtha's Daughter; Little Gershom's Penis; Uriah the Hittite; David's Census; Moses Helps God Understand; Slaughter Of the Midianites; Famine In Samaria; Where Giants Came From; Wives For the Benjamites; and When Jesus Drowned the Pigs.

Elisha and the Bears is pictured on the cover. The prophet Elisha was ridiculed by a group of children. He curses the children and two mother bears kill 42 of of them. Read 2 Kings 2:23-24:
And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head. And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.
Though probably needless to say, this book is not safe for small children.
