In this outstanding edition of the Bible, the stories from the Old and New Testaments are retold by Selina Hastings inside a lucid, flowing style for children's enjoyment and edification. The somewhat lackluster illustrations on every page are not nearly as compelling as the stories themselves, but the range of other artwork, like maps and color photographs of artifacts, plants, biblical places, animals, people, and architecture, tends to make up for any deficit there. Hastings has written several other collections of Bible stories, which includes The Birth of Jesus and The Miracles of Jesus. (Ages 8 and older) --Emilie Coulter And for a smaller, stockier version in the quite same book, check out Hastings's The Children's Illustrated Bible.

All the best-known parables and teachings are here, such as"The Plagues of Egypt,"" The Birth of Jesus,"" Jacob's Ladder,"" Noah's Ark,"" Judas Plots to Betray Jesus,"and"The Resurrection,"among many others. This volume also consists of a"Who's Who in the Bible Stories"also as quotations from the King James Bible, identified by chapter and verse.
