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.
