But there are other stories in the Bible that preachers and Sunday school teachers tend to skip over because . . . well . . . because they seem crazy the kind of stories that make us change the subject quickly when children bring them up, because we don t know why they re in the Bible or what they could possibly mean.

There's also a story about a woman who dresses provocatively and tricks her father-in-law into getting her pregnant.

In "Crazy Stories, Sane God" popular author and teacher John Alan Turner takes us on a wild and unpredictable ride through the weirdest and least familiar stories in the Bible. Through it all, Turner shows us how even these odd episodes reveal important things about the character and nature of God and, consequently, what they mean for us today.
