Description

This beautiful hardcover box set brings together Celia Barker Lottridge's Stories from Adam and Eve to Ezekiel and Stories from the Life of Jesus.

Today, when religion is both omnipresent and strangely absent from children's lives, this version of the Bible is presented to readers as a narrative of interest both for its compelling stories as well as for its deep, resonant role in Western culture. These stories are essential for an understanding of much of our art, literature and music.

Award-winning illustrators Gary Clement and Linda Wolfsgruber are both deeply familiar with the Bible stories and bring a remarkable freshness to these collections.
