256 pp, 11" H. Colour illustrations. "This collection of stories reveals the tumultuous relationship between people and God that started four thousand years ago and continues to this day. It begins with Abraham - who was the first to believe in one God and therefore the first to receive His blessing - and spans over 1,500 years as it explores the lives of his descendants. We meet warriors who dole out God's justice, kings anointed by God, and prophets who preach God's word. We see awesome miracles made by God's hand and incredible accomplishments made in God's name. Master storyteller Eric Kimmel draws upon the Bible and the Midrash to create vivid portrayals of favorite heroes like David, Samson, Deborah, and Elijah and of lesser-known ones like Miriam, Hosea, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel. Their human frailties make the tales enduring and timeless, and Kimmel's modern language makes them accessible and riveting. More than just a collection of Bible stories, (this) is a though-provoking epic that brings past, present, and future together in the ongoing love story between God and humanity." Very tiny bump at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has very minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine.
