Synopsis

The Book of Books The Bible Retold by Trevor Dennis

The great stories of the Old and New Testaments are best understood in the contexts in which they were shaped: contexts which help sift storytelling and history, poetry and prose, chronicle and commentary. Trevor Dennis is an academic theologian with a gift for storytelling. In this highly acclaimed Bible retelling, he goes back to the roots of the biblical writings, bringing fresh insights into the familiar stories in his novelistic retelling. His aim to bring the stories of the Bible alive is achieved in a book which brims with verve, humour and originality, in a style that will appeal to readers of all ages. Praise for The Book of Books: 'A deceptively simple and brilliantly imaginative retelling of the stories that make up the Bible.' Revd Prof Loveday Alexander, University of Sheffield

Reviews

Exceptional in its range, from the mysterious and poetic to the down-to-earth and funny . . . [an] admirably lucid introduction . . . Trevor Dennis's skill as a storyteller is undeniable. Church Times
