about this item

What would you have thought if you had been in the stable where jesus lay in a manger? What if you has seen Abraham with your own eyes as he was about to sacrifice his own son? What if you could have seen Jesus overcome with doubt? Or the return of the Prodigal Son? Or Jesus hanging on the cross? This book contains some of the most beautiful Bible stories, retold from a unique point of view. Famous Dutch children's authors have let their imaginations run free to give voices to some of the eyewitnesses depicted in Rembrandt's etchings. Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669) was a unique storyteller. His etchings of biblical stories give the impression that he was right there, drawing on the spot, often including anonymous eyewitnesses. Rembrandt's Bible Stories tells these stories, the stories of ordinary people - and animals - caught up in extraordinary events. Stories about the essence of compassion, comfort, forgiveness, sorrow and charity.
