Publisher's Description

Full of drama and wonder, these fresh retellings of 25 favorite Bible stories will fire children's imaginations about the people of the Bible and the God who worked in their lives. Full-color illustrations give rich visual imagery to each story.

Publisher's Weekly

Schmidt gives a dramatic spin to some classic Bible stories in this engaging collection. Brief retellings range from well-known characters (Eve wonders if she should taste the fruit offered by the serpent; Noah considers giving up hope of ever finding dry land) to ancillary players who step into starring roles. These new twists on age-old tales will spark the imaginations of younger readers, but they also contain an edgy attitude that may appeal to older kids. Without showing disrespect, Schmidt presents fully realized figures who possess human emotions and faults. Each of the 25 stories ends with a notation referring to specific passages in the Bible. Nolan's spot illustrations open each story, and several full-page watercolor paintings are interspersed throughout the book, integrating period dress and sweeping landscapes. A supplement to the traditional texts, this compilation will prove a fresh addition to many family libraries. Ages 7-up. (Aug.)
