Somehow, my family came to own the English translation of this book. With its easy prose and smattering of illustrations, I became knowledgeable about the biblical narrative. A few of the images that remained with me were Jacob’s ladder and Jesus’ crucifixion.
As I’m looking forward to seeing Noah this weekend, something such as The Bible Story is a great help. I like being able to read it and The Bible almost at the same time.
(PS – My copy is green!)
