& other subversive Bible tales. By Matt Biers-Ariel (192 Pages)Publisher: Skylight Paths, 2004
They may not be quite as you remember them, but each story in this ingenious collection some whimsical, some serious -- finds its roots in a close reading of the Bible and interpretations of it that originated centuries ago.
Take a look through God s telescope and see how it all really happened: What was it like to be in Joseph s sandals as his brothers sold him into Egyptian slavery? How did Esther use her pretty face as a tool to save the Hebrew people? And what in the name of well, you know who happened to the unicorns included on the ark s original passenger manifest?
Your guide will be a sassy angel named Gabriella. The territory you cover will be familiar. But the questions and insights that these clever, profound stories will prompt you to grapple with may surprise you.
Biblical characters explored include:
Adam Eve Cain Abel Noah Sarah Abraham Isaac Jacob Esau Joseph Moses Jonah Mordechai Haman Esther Ahasuerus Naomi Ruth Samson Delilah David
