In this magnificently illustrated edition of the Bible, all the best-loved stories of both Old and New Testaments are retold for young readers by Selina Hastings. Her fluent, lively style reflects the character and poetry of the original, while vivid and finely detailed illustrations by Eric Thomas bring to life the people and places referred to in the stories. To help explain the stories and set them in their historical and geographical context, background information is included, together with colour photographs and maps of places mentioned in the Bible. These include places associated with the main events of the Bible, such as Mount Sinai where Moses received the Ten Commandments, and the shores of the Sea of Galilee, the setting of many Jesus' miracles. Photographs of people, plants, animals, and artefacts are also featured: the lilies of the field, the cedars of Lebanon, and the kind of gifts the wise men might have brought to Jesus.
