Here’s what Sheila’s got to say about her book…

The Five-Minute Bible StoryTM Series

Remember all those old familiar Bible stories? Noah builds an ark. Babylonians build a tower. Moses builds stone tablets then drops them and breaks them after God’s written out the Ten Commandments… Well, something like that…? But what about all the unsung, unnoticed characters woven through those pages? What about the ordinary everyday people living ordinary everyday lives? Turning Bible stories into snapshots of a world gone by, dreaming how it might have been, and feeding those dreams with the best I could find of historical, scientific and archeological research, I started writing five-minute read-aloud stories for kids, now published as the Five-Minute Bible StoryTM Series by Cape Arago Press.

 

So here are some of the people you might meet if you read these tales.

 

Genesis People:  “There’s this old man, got two grown-up sons already, and suddenly his servant’s here asking if I’m willing to be his next wife. I mean, come on, what’s he need a new wife for? But he’s rich—got tons of sheep and goats—and, well, it’s time to move on. So we’re getting married tomorrow, me and old Abraham. Do you know my name?”

Exodus Tales: “I don’t like it here. It’s smoky and scary and strange. And Mom says don’t worry ’cause Moses’ll take care of us, but he’s been gone forever. So Aaron says he’ll take care of us instead. D’you know what he’s doing?”

Joshua’s Journeys: “D’you really think God’s going to part the sea again?”

Psalm Stories, and More Psalm Stories: Meet a baby who cries in church, a boy who gets lost in the woods, a girl who wants to give her brother a leaf…

And now… Just released…

Bethlehem’s Baby: “Mom. D’you think the priest lost his voice because God said he talked too much?”

And here’s “Bethlehem’s Baby”

Bethlehem's Baby Cvr
