An elegantly illustrated collection of ten favourite Bible stories with an interesting twist. Margaret McAllister imaginatively retells these tales from the point of view of the women involved: Noah's wife, Miriam, Ruth, Mary mother of Jesus, Pilate's wife, Mary Magdalene are among some of the women who put their side of the story forward. A stylish compilation of Bible stories with a difference, this is a perfect gift for girls.

Review:

Aimed at seven-year-olds and above, this book has taken an interesting twist on ten traditional Bible stories, with a retelling from the perspective of female characters - Mother Noah, Rachel, Miriam, Ruth, Mary of Nazareth, Martha and Mary, the Caananite Woman, Lady Procula (the wife of Pilate), Mary of Magdala and Lydia. McAllister skilfully explains the circumstances of each character in clear concise language that will be easily understood by children. Whilst the publishers believe this book is aimed at girls, it is clearly a volume designed to deepen understanding of the Bible and the very human behaviour and attitudes of some of its most prolific and celebrated women. Bright illustrations will hold the attention of young readers and the stories are short (but not too short) and written in language that will captivate both minds and hearts. * Life and Work * One of the lovely things about this book is the different perspective we gain on the familiar events in the bible. -- Barbara Gardner * The Lance *
