Author(s): Andrea Skevington
The great narrative of the Bible is here retold in 12 evocative chapters, within which all the great characters, stories and events appear. The scholarly text retains all the classic resonances of a Bible translation whilst being compellingly readable for today's audience. The text is punctuated with full page pictures, drawn in richly coloured pastel with astonishing depth and detail, bringing the most memorable episodes to life, along with motifs throughout, giving warmth and colour to every page. Presented in a quality hardback, this will make an appealing and lasting gift.
