    1. It doesn't have the same sass and style as other books I've read by Myers, which is a testament to his writing ability to explore a gamet of mood and genre. It's nice to see the scriptures from a different point-of-view, particularly the section on Samson and Delilah. However, I crave more elaboration and not just a snapshot chapter. After having read whole novels re-creating Old Testament stories from OS Card, this book was a bit of a disappointment. However, the artwork is culturally delightfu [...]


    2. A treatment of six Old Testament stories, written from alternate points of view: Samson and Delilah is narrated by Delilah; Isaac recounts the story about his father Abraham, etc. Nicely done, with vibrant illustrations by Myers's son.
