With sales of over 270,000, The Bible for Children brings the Bible narrative alive for a new generation of readers. Playwright and film-maker Murray Watts is one of the foremost re-tellers of the Bible in the UK. He combines expert Bible knowledge with skillful storytelling to create a compelling text with comprehensive coverage of key Bible themes and stories, faithful to the spirit of the original. His imaginative style also reflects the variety of literature found in the Bible itself: poetry, history, letters, and narrative. Helen Cann's sophisticated illustrations and borders add meaning to the stories and beauty to each page. This Bible includes over 200 stories retold for readers who may not be familiar with the Christian heritage.
