Picture the Bible (Myers)
In the Beginning
In search of a children’s Bible featuring diverse images of people and an understanding of justice grounded in God’s love, the Rev. Stacy Johnson Myers and First Congregational United Church of Christ of River Falls, Wisconsin, developed their own unique collection of Bible stories.
Picture the Bible is the beautiful result of their efforts, featuring dynamic scenery and diverse peoples through stunning collage art. Picture the Bible brings familiar Bible stories to life in a fresh way and raises engaging questions for young readers.
The fifty-three stories of Picture the Bible demonstrate the arc of God's promises and the invitation to living in God's way. They tell a range of hopeful stories, scary stories, funny stories, and comforting stories from the Bible -- ancient stories that are our stories too.
