Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This big, rich collection of biblical selections includes stories from the Old Testament and…New Testament. Rock recasts the biblical texts in a simple and direct, yet dignified language that simplifies without losing the essence of each story. Balit's stylized paintings…add to the book's vitality."  —Booklist (for the previous edition, under the title Everlasting Stories)

"A bright, appealing collection of 100 stories with full-color, stunning illustrations and borders on every page. Rock's introduction explains the diverse array of narratives and describes the flow of stories, beginning with the Creation, through Abraham, to Jesus, and the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophesies…Balit, bringing a Middle Eastern background to her art, uses bold colors and ornamentation to add drama to each illustration…With a good balance of tales (66 Old Testament stories, 34 New Testament), this is a fine collection."  —School Library Journal (for the previous edition)
