Description

In this classic version of the Holy Bible, young children can read for the first time about Adam and Eve, Noah's Ark, Moses, David and Goliath, and the life and resurrection of Jesus. Philip Turner has retold these stories with great imagination and clarity and presents the Bible story in chronological order, as a consecutive narrative, giving the reader a clear outline of the Bible as a whole. Brian Wildsmith has brought these stories to life with vivid illustrations, capturing the atmosphere with pictures of bold intensity. Both artist and author have made this book an inspiring and enjoyable introduction to the Bible for young readers.show more
