There are quotations from the Holy Bible and Bible references and often psalms paraphrased. The first double page spread introduces the characters of Noah, Moses, David, Leah, Daniel, Mary, Peter, Joseph, Abraham and Saul. It explains to youngsters that the people of the Bible are not all heroes. "They make some big mistakes (sometimes on purpose). They get afraid and run away. At times they are downright mean." The Bible is most of all an adventure story about a young Hero. God says hello to the sea, sky, cliffs, mountains, sandy beaches, buds and flowers, the sun, stars and the moon. "And whizzing into the darkness came fiery globes, spinning around and around..." We are introduced to the birds and the animals, Adam and Eve, Noah and his ark and animals, which is a story that we learn today fewer than 10% of British schoolchildren know. We love this book and would like all our readers to get copies out there to our children. 352pp, colour. 7½" x 9".
