Quick Overview

How Can You Be a Father With No Children?

Abram was old and childless. Then God showed up. "I will make you a great nation," He said, and named him Abraham, "father of a people." Years later the impossible came true. Abraham’s faith fathered three world religions: Judaism, Islam, and Christianity.

Now let ancient Near Eastern culture come alive for you! Survey the vistas of the Jordan. See the Griffin vultures that Abraham chased from his sacrifice. Laugh with 90-year-old Sarah at the birth of her miracle baby. Chill with horror at the sacrifice of Isaac. Experience Hagar’s contemp. Ishmael’s rivalry. Lot’s choice. Sodom’s doom.

Every sparkling chapter includes imaginative, true-to-life conversations. The main story line is on a fifth-grade level. The Bedtime Bible stories are for toddlers. The Did You Know? boxes, for more advanced readers, delve deep into ancient culture, explaining all about camels and covenants, Ur and angels. Included are a glossary, maps, genealogical diagrams, and beautiful original art.

The Family Bible Series offers a strong foundation for spiritual and intellectual nurture. Sit down with this book and a child, and create one of life’s rich experiences. Weave these stories into the warp and woof of their character, and build for them a world of hope.

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!

Abraham

This is one of a 4 book set, but you can purchase them individually. I bought them for my children for worship.These are Dynamite books.It gives longer story of the character for older kids and one page story for young children. The pictures look like a person of Middle Eastern descent of that time period.At the back of the book it tells about that part of the world with pictures and text. This books are very well researched and written by Christian experts in the middle Eastern time period, languages and culture. I liked these books so well that I still have my kids set and I bought a set for my husbands grandkids.
