Familiar Stories...Made New Again
The best stories of all are the amazing tales of the Old Testament, but people often feel intimidated. It's the Bible, right? The language seems hard to understand, and what's with all those genealogy lists? Luckily, Jacob Klein is here to help, with warm, friendly, accessible versions of the Old Testament stories you need to know. Find out about the chaos of the Tower of Babel, Samson's strength and how he lost it, and why, although Solomon was the wisest king of legend, he still made mistakes. You'll be enthralled by the events leading to the destruction of Jerusalem, and you'll cheer as the Jews rebuild. But most of all, you'll be immersed in a world in which sin existed...but there was no salvation. This wonderful book illuminates the prophecies that pointed toward the arrival of the Messiah and the hope for humankind in Jesus Christ. Entertaining, compelling, and inspiring, this book is the perfect jump-start for your faith journey.
