      The Exodus, Moses’ Story from the Bible compiled by Bruce Bickel and Stan Jantz with notes from Charles R. Swindoll.

      I have been looking for bible stories for the pre-teen level and I came across this book. I always liked Exodus myself and thought that this book was ideal for the pre-teen.

      It basically takes you through the first 14 chapters of Exodus from the bible. The story begins with how badly the Hebrew slaves are treated by the Pharaoh and the order that the Pharaoh wanted all the Hebrew male babies killed.

      It proceeds on with the birth of Moses.

      We learn all about the unique life Moses led and we begin to learn what plan God has in store for Moses. Soon, the plan is revealed and the plaques are leashed on Egypt. The story ends with a happy ending for the Hebrews but not the Pharoah and his people.

      Throughout the book are little snippets of information that reinforce what you just read. I find these to be very helpful as actual bible verse is sometimes quoted and pre-teens may not fully ...

      • understand.

        At the end of each chapters are fantastic insights by Chuck Swindoll.

        These are great for group discussion. For example - at the end of chapter four the insight talks about Moses still having issues with accepting God’s promises. The writer then begin writing explanation as if he was talking face to face with you. You walk away with a idea that with God “all things are possible” - if you would simply accept God and listen to him.

        The illustrations are what I would say ‘uneventful’. They are

        your basic fuzzy pictures of what’s being talked about on the page.

        This book has 95 pages. The format is softcover and easy to read. It is written for the 5th grade level and up. It refers alot to the movie The Prince of Egypt.

        I would recommend this book for a bible study class in which you read through the book together as a class and then see the movie as a special treat.

        I highly recommend this book for all ages. It’s just not from the bible….. it reads like a story book.

        Enjoy, Janet
