  • The Bible was first translated into English over 600 years ago, and was originally copied by hand until the invention of printing. It has since been translated into more than 2,000 languages.
    The Usborne Illustrated Childrens Bible, with its beautiful illustrations and clearly written text, has been carefully devised in consultation with biblical scholars and advisers, staying close to the traditional versions of the Bible stories.
    The Bible is a collection of "books", by many authors, handed down over centuries, mostly by word of mouth.
    The Old Testament describes the story of the early Jewish people and their relationship with God. It was written down over a period of about a thousand years, mainly in Hebrew, the Jewish language.
    The New Testament is the story of the life of Jesus and his teachings. It is based on eyewitness accounts by his disciples, mostly written down in Greek in the lst century AD - the hundred year period, after his death.


    * A beautiful first introduction to the Bible.
    * Contains 64 tales from the Old and New Testaments, alongside maps of the ancient lands and a comprehensive Whos who of Biblical characters to bring the stories to life.
    * Stunningly illustrated by Elena Temporin .

    Elena Temporin was born in Alessandria, in Italy, in 1970, and is a graduate of the European Institute of Design in Milan, where she lives and works. She has been a freelance illustrator since 1993, working mainly in childrens books.
