A first book of Bible-based micro-tales. Fiction Favours the Facts is a collection of the first twenty-two micro-tales from the Bible Tales Newsletter. Micro-tales? What are they? Short stories about Bible characters or events. Bible-based fiction—the facts of the Bible rounded out with imaginative detail to help us recognize the lives and feelings of real people. Some are about Bible characters you have never heard of, while others concentrate on an incident in the life of one of the more famous Bible characters. Cain and Abel, Noah and his family, Moses and Aaron, Daniel, Ebed-Melech, Mark, Peter, Paul and Silas and Judas Iscariot share their experiences with us. Lives from long ago are made real so that we can share their difficulties, triumphs and failures—and expand our own understanding of what makes our life worthwhile to God. In Fiction Favours the Facts Old Testament heroes interact with ordinary people and we learn their lessons of hospitality and faith. And even the life of the most famous traitor—Judas Iscariot—is opened for us to look at in a possible reconstruction of how he became a traitor. A wide variety of Biblical characters walk across the pages of this book and each micro-tale gives us something to think about. Lives presented by the Bible in just a few words are thoughtfully expanded, tinted with color and life—but without straying from God’s word.
