Quick Overview

The Family Bible Story Set includes four books, beautifully illustrated, featuring Biblical patriarchs:

Adam & Eve: First God created the world and everything in it. Then He took a lump of clay, shaped it into human form, and breathed it to life. But sin invaded Paradise, bringing death. And so began the grand story of redemption: the tragedy of Cain and Abel. Enoch’s walk with God. Noah’s ark and the great Flood.Babel’s confusion of languages. It’s all in these pages, beautifully illustrated with specially commissioned art.

Abraham: The exciting story of Abraham, the father of Judaism, Islam, and Christianity, is told in fascinating detail. True-to-life conversations make the story come alive for middle school kids, and information boxes for more advanced readers delve into ancient culture.

Jacob: He laid a clever plot to steal the birthright blessing from his brother, Esau, a hunter. Esau was furious! Jacob fled for safety to his uncle Laban. But what goes around comes around, and so the trickster was tricked–he asked for the hand of Rachel, but woke up to find he’d gotten Leah instead. With compelling power the ups and downs in the life of Jacob are dramatized here as never before.

Joseph: The amazing story of Joseph has everything: intrigue, suspense, violence, forgiveness, glamour, seduction, strange dreams, and a dramatic twist at the end. It tells us that injustice cannot keep good people down. No matter how dark the past, the future can be brighter than our fondest dreams.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY:

Ruth Redding Brand


Ruth Redding Brand, assistant professor of English at Atlantic Union College in Massachusetts, has written the main stories in this book. Bible stories have fascinated her from the time she was a child. When the Review and Herald Publishing Association invited her to explore the Holy Land with the late Siegfried Horn, a world-renowned archaeologist and eminently knowledgeable tour guide, she eagerly accepted. That experience (along with a lot of research) gave her access to an authenticity of detail that makes the narratives in the Family Bible Story books live and breathe.

Brand was raised on a dairy farm in Maine and grew up milking cows, haying, riding hefty workhorses, and pulling weeds in acres of corn and cucumbers. As an adult she has taught elementary school and junior high as well as college. Since earning her Master's degree in English, she has taught English at Fitchburg State College and Atlantic Union College.

She lives in Lancaster, Massachusetts, with her husband, Bob, and pampered cat, Sky. She is blessed with two adult children, Jeffrey and Heidi, and their respective spouses, Krista (Motschiedler) and Troy Clark. Brand loves to read, play word games, walk on the beach, and swim, but she'll drop any of these activities in a heartbeat to spend time with her granddaughter, little Miss Emma Mae Clark!
