Summary
A handsome, beautifully illustrated boxed set of Bible stories includes two books, Stories from the Life of Jesus which introduces Jesus's life as told through the Gospels and Stories from Adam and Eve to Ezekiel which presents the powerful moral lessons illustrated in the Old Testament.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
This gorgeous boxed set comprises two of Celia Barker Lottridge’s acclaimed Bible books: Stories from the Life of Jesus and Stories from Adam and Eve to Ezekiel. The first volume is a powerful retelling of events in Jesus’ life and the stories he told, focusing not on interpretation but on the stories themselves, as they might have been told in Jesus’ own time. The gospel accounts of the life of Jesus are a cornerstone of Western culture as well as being important religious texts, and Lottridge’s spare and eloquent versions introduce them to young readers as a vital part of their cultural heritage. Linda Wolfsgruber’s stunning illustrations perfectly complement the text.

In the second book, Lottridge brings her storytelling gifts to the Jewish Bible. These tales are essential for understanding the art of the past two millennia of Western culture. This version of the Jewish Bible intrigues young readers for both its power as story and its profound moral lessons. Gary Clement’s iconographic artwork honors both the stories and the rich history behind them.
