Hilary Faith Jones makes a welcome return with a brand new collection of Bible stories skillfully retold to enable the reader to witness the story first hand. Stand alongside each character as they step closer to God and discover His loving hand at work in their lives.
Some of the characters are well-known, others play a minor role, yet however small their mention they are all of crucial importance in furthering the work of God’s kingdom. Again and again, it becomes clear how significant and precious each person was, and is, to God.
Inside you’ll find 8 stories, including: Esau – an estranged brother, Joseph – a spoilt teenager; Naaman – a brilliant commander; the adulteress – a woman seeking forgiveness, the Roman centurion – a man of strong faith, and Ananias – a man called personally by name. In each case, as they step closer to God, they transform not only their own lives, but also the lives of those they touch and the lives of those who read their stories.
This book is ideal for individual or group reading. As you turn the pages, you cannot help but identify with the characters and the stories come to life, you’ll find yourself transported back to Bible times.
