Synopsis

The Lion Classic Bible by Andrea Skevington

Stunning in presentation and full in scope, The Lion Classic Bible is an evocative retelling of the Bible's great stories for children. In 12 flowing chapters, Andrea Skevington brings together all the Bible's treasured tales to reveal the overarching story of God and his people. Skilfully crafting her stories with care and consideration for the biblical original yet with the energy of the story front-of-mind, the result is a text with a compelling pace, which is at once fresh and original for new readers, but with an underlying depth and perspective that will delight those already familiar with the stories - whatever their age. Richly coloured full-page illustrations and motifs artwork add warmth and colour throughout. This version of The Lion Classic Bible is given a luxury binding to make an extra-special gift; a quality hardback with a real linen cover with foil effect, gilt edges, and ribbon marker make this a Bible to treasure.
