“In her refusal to invent or simplify for a young audience, Lore Segal has followed the narrative threads in a translation that is both graceful and precise, keeping the grandeur and wit of language, the music and mystery of these ancient texts. Eloquently illustrated by master classicist Leonard Basking, this is a beautiful and important book for a new generation of Bible readers.”- Publisher. Item #23122
