Product Description

Product Description

Ask any 12-year-old kid to describe a hero, and you will get some of the following answers: a superstar athlete, a soldier on the front lines, or a guy in a cape who can jump over buildings.

Most of our “heroes” are related to human achievement and glory, but the Bible has a very different concept. The list of people who were great in God’s eyes might shock you. This devotional book is about their stories.

The 90 devotions feature the qualities of Bible characters that made them heroic. From Moses to Esther to Jesus, kids will learn more about how these Bible people pleased God. They will know that qualities like courage, worshiping God, and being a true friend are heroic actions. The devotional features line drawings of the Bible characters to further help youth identify with and learn about the people in the Bible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great devotional for tweens! 7 Aug 2014
By J4Life5 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book holds great appeal for the target audience, kids aged 8 - 12. It has a graphic novel quality to it that would appeal to kids that love comic books, while the arrangement of the text provides structure, but also gives younger readers sections to focus on without being overwhelmed with a long bunch of words. All together, the appearance of the book is perfect for kids.

As far as the content, I love it! I love devotional books or other books geared for kids that I can learn from and this one offers a lot of information in a very user friendly format. Cooley takes well-known people from the Bible and tells their story in a way that is easy for kids to understand. Readers get to know Noah, Moses, Jonathan, Daniel, Jonah, and many others. But the best part is that Cooley draws connections from the heroes to the kids. For example, he talks about how Jeremiah thought he was too young to be used by God and helps readers to see that God can use anyone.

The best part of this book is that after readers learn the story about the hero from the Bible, there are encouraged to internalize the lessons learned and make their own Battle Plan, which is a short exercise to apply the lesson to their life. Most of the Plans are quite short, consisting of memorizing a verse or spending some time in prayer.

I think this is a great book that is perfect for the 8-12 age bracket. Younger readers can gain experience working through a devotional independently and start to develop individual Bible study skills. If you are looking for an awesome devotional for a tween, this is a great choice!
5.0 out of 5 stars The cover art is perfect for a boy of this age as it is ... 3 Aug 2014
By Tiffany - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Heroes of the Bible Devotions: 90 Devotions to Help You Become a Hero of God! is a devotional geared at tween boys, of which I have one and let me say the minute he saw this book he has wanted to get his hands on it. The cover art is perfect for a boy of this age as it is like a graphic novel. But let's not leave out the girls. There are great girl heros in this devotional as well so I'm sure many tween girls would enjoy it as well.

The devotional is divided into sections for each hero with several days of devotions for each one so that you can really get a feel for that Bible character. Each day includes something that a true hero for God does, a hero's tale, a section called decoding the message, and a battle plan. The hero's tale is the meat that talks about the verse and about the hero they are looking at. The section called decoding the message is a section that helps your young person apply this to his life. And finally the battle plan gives you something to do such as memorize a verse. There are also gospel connections sprinkled throughout which I love. The gospel is the most important thing and I love that he ties it back to that. I truly can't recommend this book enough. It is fabulous!
4.0 out of 5 stars Heroes of the Bible Devotional is a great study geared for children 13 Aug 2014
By Elizabeth Cundiff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Heroes of the Bible Devotional is a great study geared for children. This is a 90 day devotional that teaches kids that not only were people in the Bible people like you and me who experienced both success and failures, but that they were also heroes because they loved and served God. This devotional also explains that they too can be heroes just by serving God and it gives great examples of this through telling the stories of people like Noah, Hezekiah, and David. The devotional also tells its readers what important truths they can learn from each of these characters and how those truths can apply to their lives so they can be God’s heroes too. I also like how they used creative titles to encourage kids to apply what they learned from not only the Bible but also the devotional. This devotional is a great study for kids because it not only teaches them how to be heroes for God, but it also is written in a way that they will understand and be entertained too.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great for Young Readers 8 Aug 2014
By anotherbibliophile - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is excellent for middle school readers. It has a graphic novel feel to it, and the devotionals are short. The assignments are reasonable and easy. It's laid out in 90 daily readings, so it's an easy book to read. The stories include some famous and some obscure Bible figures. I enjoyed this myself, because I learned a lot. I would not recommend downloading it to an e-reader unless you want to teach your youngsters patience. To download it to my older model e-reader took forever, and I had to wait one or two minutes every time I turned a page. I believe it's because this has a lot of graphics. I was wishing I had chosen the paperback. The pictures were great, though, and they enhanced it quite well.
4.0 out of 5 stars Real heroes don't wear capes. 4 July 2014
By Cheryl H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Fictional heroes are bigger than life and carry special powers. Real ones have ordinary physical strength and abilities—and don’t wear capes. This book of devotions reveals wonderful, unexpected examples of heroes in the Bible, and shows us that it doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, rich or poor, tall or short, we can be heroes too.

Each devotion (90 days worth) includes:
A TRUE HERO FOR GOD…, (identifying an affirming action, belief, or understanding from a person in the Bible.)
A HERO'S TALE (an account from the Bible)
DECODING THE MESSAGE (explaining the underlying message)
THE BATTLE PLAN (further Bible reading on the topic.)

The comic book-like illustrations are appealing and effective. They are well drawn, suiting both the Bible verse and devotion.

Even though this unique devotional book is suited for tweens/teens, I (as an adult) appreciate its significant messages, the most important being that Jesus is the greatest hero, and we all possess the ability be heroes for God through His power!
