Overview

A rich crop of legends from the most widely read book in the world told and retold, to the delight of Jews and Christians for thousands of years. Here is a kaleidoscope of tales, a key to many of the riches literary and artistic traditions of the western world. What emerges from these stories are real people, true to life and fond of life and able to laugh at the things they love. In the mist of fable, you'll find the same spiritual values as those in the Bible itself, seen now in new colors, new dimensions.
