The Lion Storyteller Bible broke new ground in its presentation – both verbal and visual – of Bible stories. It has been immensely popular, with sales in the UK exceeding 130,000 copies and editions printed in more than 11 languages. Since The Lion Storyteller Bible was first published Bob Hartman has established an international reputation as a storyteller and writer.
This new book integrates more than 20 new Bible story retellings with the 50 tried and tested originals. It also includes a useful appendix of Bob Hartman’s hints and tips for storytelling, as well as 4 CDs on which the stories are narrated by voiceover specialist, David Holt. Newly commissioned illustrations throughout will capture as much warmth and appeal as those in the first edition.
For thousands of years, the stories in the Bible have been passed on from generation to generation. The new retelling of many well-loved stories from the Old and New testaments is ideal for sharing with children today. First to be read aloud and then read alone – The Lion Storyteller Bible will be treasured by children of all ages.
