The treasured stories of the Bible make one great story about God and God's people. In this retelling, each memorable episode can be enjoyed in its own right or read and understood as part of the unfolding story. Christina Balit's stunning illustrations underline the power and drama of the narrative. Starting with the beauty of creation and the tragedy of humankind turning its back on Paradise, the story continues with the lives of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph and Moses; the struggles of the nation during the time of Joshua, Samson and Gideon; peace under Saul, David and Solomon; the prophets; the return to Israel after exile in Babylon. Finally come the stories of Jesus, stories that show people how to walk the road of love, peace, justice and eternal life.
LOIS ROCK has established an international reputation as a children's writer. Specialising in Bible stories, prayer books, and information books, her books have been translated into over 30 languages with sales of 4 million copies.|Christina Balit is a graduate of the Royal College of Art. Of British and Armenian descent, Christina spent her childhood in the Middle East - the very landscapes where so many of the Bible's tales are set - which became a large influence on her illustrations. An acclaimed children's book artist, she has received widespread praise for her children's books, which are mainly mythology, Biblical stories, or retellings of traditional myths or stories.
