DES MOINES (AP) — Don’t expect to hear these Bible stories at church.
Cannibalism, rape, a bear that mauls children — this is the Bible?
They’re among six stories from the Old Testament acted out in “Terror Texts,” a musical at Northwestern College in Orange City.
Adding to the shocking nature of the stories are the theatrics, with actors decked out in Goth attire, a rock band and a mosh pit.
Theater professor Jeff Barker said the obscurity of the stories belies their value.
