“Fiction Favours the Facts – Book 2” is a second paperback collection of 22 micro-tales from the Bible Tales Newsletter.
Micro-tales? What are they? They are short stories about Bible characters or events.
Bible-based fiction – the facts of the Bible rounded out with imaginative detail to help us recognise the lives and feelings of real people.
Some tell of little-known Bible characters, while others concentrate on an incident in the life of one of the more famous Bible characters.
Share the experiences of people who met the prophets Jeremiah and Ezekiel; consider how God’s curse dogged the rebuilding of Jericho; see Jesus as his family saw him; marvel at the faith of a woman who was sure that just touching Jesus’ clothes would heal her.
Have you ever wondered how Hosea came to marry a prostitute? “Hosea’s Story” might offer you an answer, and get you thinking more about the patience of God.
Meet Jacob and his children, King Manasseh, Gehazi, Joseph of Arimathea, Elymas and many others as they recount their experiences for you.
Each micro-tale will give you something to think about.
