This volume is for anyone who would like to imaginatively and memorably retell Bible stories from Genesis. Whether you are a preacher, a Sunday school teacher, or a parent, you will discover in this book everything you need to dynamically retell many of the foundational stories of the Jewish and Christian faiths. The authors stress that retellings are not intended to be memorized, but rather to spark your imagination. Additionally, Jewish midrashim offer unique, rabbinic interpretations of the stories in Genesis.
