We Will Build a Temple

The Path of Israel from King Solomon to John the Baptist

Jacob Streit



In this, Streit’s sequel to Journey to the Promised Land, he once again takes up the retelling of Bible stories, including some from the Apocrypha. Streit was a Waldorf class teacher, and his original audience was the students of his 3rd grade class — however, his telling of these tales is so poignantly simple and captures their essence in such a lovely way that they have value long beyond the 3rd grade. They connect the reader with the pictures and events that contributed to the forming of Western culture at the beginning. They are the stories of Solomon, Elijah, Tobias, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, Nehemiah, Jonah, Heliodorus, Job, Judas Maccabeus, and John the Baptist.
