Stories From Adam and Eve to Ezekiel
Retold From the BibleBook - 2004
In 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. Today, when religion is both omnipresent and strangely absent from children's lives, this version of the Jewish Bible is presented to readers as a narrative of interest both for the compelling quality of the stories it tells as well as for the deep, resonant role it has played in Western culture. It aims to give children a greater understanding of their own cultural inheritance.
Award-winning illustrator Gary Clement is a sophisticated artist whose acquaintance with the iconographic roots of the stories has allowed him to situate the illustrations in historical tradition while bringing a freshness and vitality to them.
