An Eighth Day View:

Noah and the Ark, Isaac's blessing of Jacob, Jonah cast into the sea, and other immortal Bible tales are memorably retold in this splendid book of stories and pictures. Starting with Cain and Abel, the collection of ninety familiar and lesser-known vignettes includes Abraham's sacrifice, the plagues of Egypt, Samson and the lion, Elijah fed by ravens, the parable of the boiling pot, and other episodes from the scriptures.
Written in simple but vivid language, each tale is accompanied by a black-and-white illustration by a distinguished Victorian artist. Contributors include Sir Frederic Leighton, Sir Edward Burne-Jones, Sir Edward Poynter, George Frederic Watts, William Holman Hunt, and other luminaries of the nineteenth-century British art world. All of the narratives comment directly on the striking images, pointing out details of particular interest. A wonderful way to introduce children to biblical literature, this new reproduction of a magnificent antique volume will captivate readers of all ages.
