Synopsis

The Kingfisher Children's Bible by Trevor Barnes

The Kingfisher Children's Bible is a stunning new retelling of one of the world's most important books for a new generation of children. Readers of the Bible have always been seekers of truth and knowledge, and communication and explanation remain the bedrock of this definitive modern children's edition. The major Bible stories are retold here in a vigorous style, which retains their universal, age-old appeal. Faithful attention to detail is combined with dynamic story-telling to bring these wonderful tales vividly to life. The Kingfisher Children's Bible is based on the King James version and at certain key points the author has kept the original text, to give young readers an idea of the majesty of the prose. There is comprehensive coverage of both Testaments; any book not fully covered in the narrative sections of the Bible is summarized in the Reference Section. Dramatic and powerful new illustrations accompany every story, giving a fresh new perception to events and stories that are over two thousand years old. The Reference Section brings the reader right up to date with photographs of contemporary sites, historical relics and detailed maps and reconstructions.
