Like Anita Diamont's bestselling THE RED TENT, this stunning collaboration from an award-winning father & son team finds inspiration in the world's most profound & influential literary work, the Bible
Combining the power of his finest fiction w/ the exquisite language of his poetry, Walter Dean Myers retells 6 stories from the Old Testament--all w/ YA narrators. Some stories are well known (Samson&Delilah), others less so (Aser&Gamiel). Some are straightforward (Ruth&Naomi). Others are complicated & challenging (Abraham&Isaac). But like the bloodlines that connect many of these biblical figures, a common theme courses through their stories: LOVE. Christopher's arresting artwork is grounded in the traditions of classical art but is infused with a vision and soul all his own.
