Stephanie Biggs-Scribner is a scholar of the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) who provides background, context, and linguistic insights. We .also invited Stephanie and her daughter, Maggie, to talk to each other about the stories in letters to each other.
Maggie Biggs-Scribner was ten years old when she was invited to share in this letter writing venture with her mother so that readers could have a child's eye view of each story from the Bible.
The Reverend Dr. Linda H. Hollies is a noted author, teacher, and preacher who brings the stories to life with an interpretive voice. Her approach resonates with that of the Midrash, a collection of teachings by first-millennium a.d. Jewish interpreters who wrote elaborations on the Scriptures to glean as much meaning from them as possible.
Bishop Minerva Carcaño provides an insightful study guide to help readers deal with the fact that Children of the Bible is not exactly kids' stuff. We might wish our study to be a "warm and fuzzy" experience. We might want to learn how to read the Bible stories in this book to our children and grandchildren. These expectations may be fulfilled in certain ways, but in other ways this study may be as disturbing as it is comforting.
