Product Description
 
From Genesis to the writings of the prophets, all the key stories from the Hebrew Bible are beautifully and clearly told in this refreshed edition of the popular Children's Illustrated Jewish Bible. The book features all the key characters and tells their stories- Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden; Cain and Abel; Noah on the Ark; the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, Jacob; Joseph; Moses; King David - plus some of the less well-known figures, such as Joshua, Gideon, Ruth, Solomon, Elijah, Jeremiah, Jonah, and Esther. Psalms and poetry are also included. Plus pages on 'Life in Egypt' and 'Life in Canaan' along with glossaries of people and places in the Bible bring the stories of ancient tradition to life.
In the book's foreword, the authors say that we are encouraged to think for ourselves- The stories of the Bible ... can be understood in many ways and on many different levels. ... A s we grow up and change, we can see new questions in each story. Why does God tell Adam and Eve about one tree but not another? Why does God ask Abraham to sacrifice his son?... To write the stories in this book, we looked at the Bible and asked many, many questions. How? What? When? Who? And of course, why? Why, why, why? And why not?
The authors' sensitive and perfectly pitched retellings aren't simply an introduction to the Bible - they inspire the next generation to carry on the tradition.From Genesis to the writings of the prophets, all the key stories from the Hebrew Bible are beautifully and clearly told in this refreshed edition of the popular Children's Illustrated Jewish Bible.
