  • Including 750 pages of full-color illustration, this comic book version of Holy Scripture focuses only on the historical portions of the Bible, omitting those parts that do not easily fit into a storybook framework, such as the Psalms and Proverbs. Intended for young readers just starting to explore the Bible, this volume includes over 230 stories as well as illustrated pages describing aspects of life and society during biblical times.
