The Old Testament reveals the lives of many families across generations and tells the stories of many unforgettable men and women. Their lives are played out in turbulent times against the drama of great floods, plagues, journeys, and battles.
From this epic collection, Berlie Doherty has chosen more than forty stories. Her narrative draws out the emotions of real people: their hopes and fears, grief and joy, fulfilment and suffering, compassion and betrayal. She brings us to an understanding of the promises that these people keep and the mistakes they make.
Fully illustrated throughout by Jason Cockcroft with both gorgeous color and evocative black and white artwork, this new collection of Bible stories is a book to cherish.
