CARDIFF, Wales (PRWEB) May 21, 2019
Inspired by his extensive study of the Bible, Peter Elwood returns to the publishing scene with the release of a new volume offering readers “Lessons for Life Based on the Lives of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph” (published by Xlibris UK).
The book presents the family of Abraham as considerably the first family recorded in detail for over four generations. It explains how they faced the same problems that people face today in their marriages, families and neighbors. In line with this, Elwood emphasizes how many today can learn from the way Abraham handled their problems — however badly — and ultimately search for God and a meaning in life successfully.
“Most books about this family have been written by theologians. This one is written by a man with a career in medical science and a family enlarged by fostering and adoption,” Elwood explains. “It is so up-to-date in its portrayal of life in a family and in its dealing with the neighbours.”
When asked what he aims for readers to take away from the book, Elwood says, “The concept of God being interested and concerned in the lives of ordinary people.”

About the Author
Peter Elwood grew up in a loving and stable family. He believes that his father, as his role model, together with Bible teaching from both parents, gave him a good start when he became responsible for his own family. Elwood’s family was enlarged and enriched through fostering and adoption. Looking back, he wishes to have done so many things differently, but like the men in this book, Elwood had to learn much the hard way — through making mistakes. Elwood is the author of “A Medical Scientist Examines the Life of Jesus” and “Lessons for Life Based on the Lives of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph.”
