Dark and Disturbing Stories from the Bible draws middle schoolers into Bible events that will have them asking, "Is that really in the Bible?" The 13 sessions will arrest their attention and get them to dig into issues that have been around since Bible times--the same kinds of issues your students are facing:

? the lure of popularity
? arrogance
? murder and violence
? suicide
? pain and suffering
? and more!

Use Dark and Disturbing Stories from the Bible to empower students to make God-honoring choices when they face PG-13 challenges!
