Signs and Wonders: Tales from the Old Testament

Length: 463 pages7 hours


Entertaining, thought-provoking depictions of classic Bible stories

Renowned mythologist Bernard Evslin finds a powerful balance of tradition and modernity in his strongly realized retellings of Old Testament stories. His rendition reflects the literary style of the King James Bible and stays true to the Old Testament worldview and spirit—but also uses streamlined descriptions and dialogue, to balance the archaic language that can deter contemporary readers. Here you’ll find fresh versions of the iconic stories of Adam and Eve; Lot’s daughters; Jacob’s ladder; David and Goliath; Rebecca at the well; the twin brothers Jacob and Esau; and more, in a style that engages both the senses and the imagination.
