We often see Bible stories as just that; stories. We forget that these are real accounts of past events. We are often oblivious to the fact that people of the Bible had personalities, emotions, skills and flaws. In these short stories, some of those people come to life. By putting ourselves in their shoes, we relate to them better.

When the Bible talks about people dying in the Great Flood, we forget that every one of those caught up in the deluge were human beings. To simply regroup them as part of a race of sinners is a simplification of the magnitude of this event. When we examine a little closer one of these lives, the flood takes on a new significance.

Using the elements as the foundation of these twelve stories, the author demonstrates the real struggles these people had to cope with in biblical times.
