Description

Here is a collection of some of the most powerful and wonderful stories from the Old Testament. We can trace the lives of memorable Biblical characters across the generations including Noah, Abraham, Jacob, Moses, Ruth, Saul and David. Their lives are played out in turbulent times - and the drama of great floods, plagues, journeys, and battles is revealed to us through stories that have been retold with spirit and originality by Berlie Doherty. From this epic sweep, Berlie Doherty's narrative draws out the emotions of real men and women: their hopes and fears, grief and joy, fulfilment and suffering, compassion and betrayal. Berlie Doherty brings us to an understanding of the promises that these people keep and the mistakes they make. Through all this we discover more about God and our faith in him. Fully illustrated throughout by Jason Cockcroft with both sumptuous colour and evocative black and white artwork, this collection of Bible stories is a book to cherish.show more
