Ages 9 – 109!Adventist Book Center product description
Asher and his sister Zara are slaves in Egypt, along with their family and friends. The cruel taskmaster Nephi and his son Husani torment Asher and his friend Iru, as well as their fathers Joshua and Caleb, as they work all day in the brickyard. Even though Moses returns to Egypt and promises God is going to set them free, nothing good seems to result.
Though they pray and obey God, they remain enslaved, and He seems silent. If God is so powerful and loving, why doesn’t He deliver them, as Moses keeps promising? Is He really more powerful than the Egyptian gods? As they seek to trust God, their struggle with bitterness, anger and fear only seems to intensify.
Why does God allow suffering? Why does wrong seem to triumph over right so often, and bad people get away with sin unpunished? Will God ever make everything right, and if so, why doesn’t He do it now? This book grapples with these and many other questions, in a tender, heart-wrenching story of hate, heartache and hope. The story unfolds inspiring, relevant present-day lessons from the ancient biblical story.
Written as a story so simple a young child can understand, but exploring the unfathomable depth of gospel themes of faith, humility, justice, mercy, forgiveness and love, Faith Roots is for seekers of every age.Amazon.com product description
