From Genesis to the Book of Daniel, these 35 stories from the Old Testament are retold in a simple, conversational style, daring readers of any age to engage with them in a new way. Poet Frédéric Boyer presents such familiar figures as Noah ("The Last Temptation of God"), Abraham ("The Call to Separation"), David ("The Rebellious Child"), and Job ("The Scandal of Innocence"), which illustrator Serge Bloch expertly captures in dozens of expressive cartoons that also shed new light on the texts.
