Let the good times roll! Relying on the same great storytelling skills that made her book, Genesis People, so popular, Sheila Deeth extends her tour of the Bible. So gather the kids and join her as this long-time Christian Educator and Sunday School Teacher leads a fun and educational field trip into and through the Book of Exodus. Designed for independent reading by middle-graders, or reading aloud to younger children, each one of this series of linked short stories is not too long, not too short…but just the right length.
Four hundred years have passed since a drought forced Jacob and his family to relocate in Egypt. Ramses II is now Pharaoh of Egypt. The people considered him a god. Joseph, his father and brothers are long dead…dim memories of a better time. The Israelites have become an enslaved people crying out for deliverance from their pain and misery. God hears his people’s plea and sends an exiled Egyptian Prince with the message, “Let My people go.”
Join the Israelites as Moses calls down plague after plague until the Pharaoh finally relents. Walk beside the newly freed people as they enter the trackless desert in search of a Promised Land where they can make their new home. See how God shapes and molds his people in the wilderness. Meet the men chosen to assist Moses in this task. Travel with them to the edge of the Promised Land where they arrive with the commandments Moses brought down from the mountaintop, the Ark God ordered them to build, and hope for the future.
Exodus Tales contains 40 separate stories, each one the ideal length for reading at bedtime or before a nap. Using her insights, masterful storytelling skills and gentle way with words, Ms. Deeth creates a series of stories that will have your children begging for “Just one more.”
A wonderful way to introduce youngsters to the Bible. Includes Author’s Notes.
