Storyteller Bob Hartman takes a very unusual approach to ten tales from the Bible. His stories are full of memorable language that delights children. Hartman's starting point is that every angel has its own characteristics: some shy, some brave, some practical, some playful. And each angel is perfectly matched to the task God gives it. Through this device, his retellings get right to the heart of the Bible stories, drawing out their significance in a way that stays in the imagination. The book includes the stories of: Hagar; Balaam; Elijah; Daniel; The Burning Fiery Furnace; Gabriel and Mary; The Christmas Shepherds; the Resurrection; Peter in Prison; and Paul's shipwreck.
