Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0152012389, Hardcover)

“This book is astonishing, daring, compelling, and confirms Lester’s preeminence among storytellers.”--Jane Yolen

If we weren’t there, how can we really know how the world began? Could it be that God even made a mistake or two when creating the world? Using Jewish legend and his own translations from the Book of Genesis, master storyteller Julius Lester has created a collection of Bible stories like no other. Written especially for readers who might not make their way to the stories of the Bible otherwise, these tales are a welcome opening to a glorious world that will touch the spirit of all readers--no matter what religion guides them.
