Quick Overview

In the beginning God created
the heaven and the earth.

At first a shoreless ocean covered a coal-black planet. Then God stepped into the inky nothingness and spoke. At the sound of His voice, dazzling light drove back the darkness. With a word God created all that is: sea and sky, wren and orchid, lamb and salmon. Finally He took a lump of clay, shaped it into human form, and breathed it to life. Eyelids fluttered and opened in wonder. God smiled. "Welcome to Eden," He said.

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. A full glossary explains the meaning of names from the first 11 chapters of Genesis. There is something for every member of the family, with differing styles and levels of writing for different ages. Advanced readers will enjoy the sampling of Creation and Flood accounts drawn from other cultures. The Bible stories themselves are on a fifth-grade level, followed by a simpler version of the same story written for tiny tots.

The Family Bible Story series sets new standards of excellence with its vivid tales for kids of all ages that spark the imagination and nourish the soul.

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!

Outstanding

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.
