Author(s): Margaret McAllister
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 and boys alike.
