I really enjoyed this top notch novelization of the world's most popular book, the Bible. Wangerin takes the bare bones stories that the Bible gives us and makes them come alive with characters that are more fleshed out. He even paraphrases some of the poetry and inserts that when appropriate. It makes reading these familiar stories fun and can make you think about them in a new way.
