Stories from Adam and Eve to Ezekiel: Retold from the Bible
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungIn this handsome companion volume to "Stories from the Life of Jesus, " Celia Barker Lottridge brings her gifts as an award-winning storyteller to the Jewish Bible. These texts from the Old Testament are essential for reading the books, for looking at the art, and for listening to the music from the past two millennia -- and long before. Lottridge's striking prose highlights the drama of such stories as Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden, Samson in the lion's den, the famed exodus from Egypt, Lot and his wife who turned to stone, and more.
At a time when religion is both omnipresent and absent from children's lives, this version of the Jewish Bible is presented to young readers as a narrative of interest both for the compelling quality of the stories it tells and for the deep, resonant role it has played in Western culture. Acclaimed illustrator Gary Clement interprets these tales with respect and vitality.
