by Mary Batchelor
Illustrated by John Haysom

Eloquently written, with a high sense of drama, Batchelor's adaptation retains the stories' power and poetry. A "children's" Bible perhaps only due to its one-a-day gimmick, it may prove too difficult for younger kids, but all ages will rejoice in the wistful illustrations and (in the deluxe edition) heirloom-quality binding. (Lion Publishing, $14.95 to $39.95, depending on binding)
