Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
More than 140 familiar Bible stories (NRSV) are enhanced with beautiful, full-color artwork by an award-winning illustrator.

Review:
This book introduces Bible stories for today by combining striking and detailed illustrations with the actual words of the Bible. The artist’s illustrations help us understand how different the biblical world is from what we are familiar with, and help us use our imaginations to try and enter that world. For example, the characters are not shown as typical North Americans or Europeans, but more as people might have looked in the ancient Near East.

But even as the pictures tell us about the culture and customs of another time, they also remind us that God continues to speak to our lives and to our world today. The illustrations for Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount include reminders of how much meaning his words have had for the twentieth century – from the Holocaust to Mother Teresa. And one of the pictures of Job in his suffering (p. 176) is based on a World War II photograph of a man in the Jewish ghetto in Warsaw, Poland, before the ghetto was destroyed by the Nazis.

The 142 stories in this book use the actual words of the Bible, from the New Revised Standard Version, shortened to fit the available space. In a few places, words have been added to make transitions read more smoothly, and these words and phrases are printed in italic type.
