Chapter One

God Builds a New Nation

"I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you. I will make your name great. You will be a blessing to others." Genesis 12:2

The earth recovered from the great flood. Noah's family grew and grew and grew. Once again people were scattered over the face of the whole world. God's great and grand and glorious vision was still alive. He had plans to build a new nation, and it would all start with one ordinary man.

Abraham Trusts God Genesis 12:1–9; 15:1–6; 21:1–7

One day, God spoke to Abram, "I have big plans for you, Abram. I will bless you and make your name great. You will be a blessing to others. I will make you the father of a great nation. Leave your country and your people and go to a land I will show you. Pick up everything and start walking. Eventually I will show you where to stop."

Amazingly, Abram trusted God. He gathered the members of his household, packed up all his belongings, and started walking across the desert. He had no idea where he was going. When he arrived in the land of Canaan, God said, "You can stop walking, Abram. This is the land I am going to give you and all the people who come after you." So Abram and his wife Sarai pitched their tents and settled in the land.

Many years passed. Then one cool, dark night, God called to Abram in his tent. "Abram, come outside. Look up at the sky. Count the stars, if you can even count that high. I promise you will have as many children as there are stars in the heavens!"

Abram believed God. Even though Abram was old, even though his wife Sarai was old and had never been pregnant, Abram still believed God would make him into a great nation.

Many, many more years passed. Now Abram was 99 years old and Sarai was 90. Once again God spoke to Abram. "Abram, today I am making a covenant with you. You will be the father of many nations. Your name will now be Abraham. Give your wife the name Sarah, for she will be the mother of many nations. She soon will have a son."

Abraham fell on the ground, laughing. He said to himself, "A great nation will come from me? But how? Sarah and I are too old to have children!"

But soon Abraham and Sarah learned that nothing was too hard for God. A year later Sarah gave birth to a baby boy. Abraham named him Isaac (which means "to laugh").

When Isaac grew up, he married and had two sons: Esau and Jacob. Esau had five sons, and Jacob had twelve! Abraham's children would multiply like the stars in the heavens—just like God had promised.

    It is always a delight to come across a resource that is far abo

    It is always a delight to come across a resource that is far above the other offerings in that same category. The Story For Children is in that class. The book is downright hefty simply because it is packed so full of God's messages to His people.

    Max Lucado, Randy Frazee, and Karen Davis Hill, have put together a publication that will aid you in teaching your child about the major themes of the Bible. They have chosen forty-eight of the pivotal stories from Scripture. Each chapter unveils an important truth. It is told in the iconic Lucado style, with words that paint pictures and bring about understanding to even the youngest reader or listener. I particularly like how at the end of each segment is a portion called God's Message. It is designed to show the reader that the story that was just covered has everything to do with our modern day lives.

    I must also comment on the artwork. The visions that Fausto Bianchi has put together are stunningly beautiful. They compliment the storyline so well by bringing the central truth being depicted to life.

    If you are looking for a new book to read and teach your children about the timeless message of the Bible, you really shouldn't pass this one up. It would make a great addition to any home and can be enjoyed by the entire family.

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

    Appealing collection of Bible Stories

    I was looking for a gift for a little girl making her First Communion, and this filled the bill very well. There is a wide collection of stories from both the Old and New Testaments, and the illustrations are lovely. When the little girl in question opened the gift, she immediately began to look through the entire book and didn't stop until she had checked out all the stories. It's a very nice introduction to the Bible for children.
