Abraham’s Bind & Other Bible Tales of Trickery, Folly, Mercy and Love

| |

Michael J. Caduto

Publisher: Skylight Paths

New retellings of episodes in the lives of familiar biblical characters explore relevant life lessons for today’s world.
Abraham and Sarah; Jacob and Esau; Joseph with his coat of many colors—these biblical characters and the stories surrounding their lives may be ancient, yet they continue to yield surprisingly fresh and relevant spiritual lessons for life in the modern world.

With insight, thoughtfulness and wit, Caduto re-imagines these characters and many more, retelling their stories and highlighting their foibles and strengths, their struggles and joys. Readers will learn that God has a way of working for them and through them even today, even when life seems less than perfect:

-Barren and despairing Sarah becomes pregnant—learning that nothing is impossible.
-Jacob the trickster is, in turn, tricked into marrying the wrong wife—learning that what goes around comes around.
-Joseph is sold into slavery by his brothers, only to rise to wield the power of life and death over them—learning that patience and integrity will win out in the end.

Provocative and entertaining, these retellings offer readers the chance to discover these ancient biblical stories—and themselves—anew.
