The Children’s Bible
A new Bible for children with selected stories about women and girls.
The stories in the Bible have been told for hundreds of years. They are the foundation of the Christian faith, an integral part of Western culture, and not the least: Bible stories are exciting! This lovely children’s Bible introduces readers to the most important characters in the Bible. Central chapters are retold by author Alf Kjetil Walgermo, bringing girls and women more to the forefront than in previous children’s Bibles. In this book you will hear not only the famous story of Daniel in the lion’s den and Jonah and the whale, but also about clever queens like Esther, strong leaders like Deborah and key eyewitnesses like Mary Magdalene.
The Children’s Bible is illustrated throughout by Anna Fiske. Her distinctive style gives a fresh, new spin on the old stories, respectful, yet with a humorous twist.
This book is well suited both for reading aloud to small children and as an introduction to the Bible for children who can read themselves. And why not, a great alternative for adult readers who want a quick overview of the basics of the Bible.
