    This rare book from the turn of the century was given to me as a gift from a man who loved the scriptures and wanted to pass on a family heirloom. The humor in this poetic version of the Bible always surprises me. For Example: "And quickly then the gossips said, That Eve and Adam soon would wed; And Eve was glad, and did rejoice To know that she was Adam's choice. Without a mansion, house, or cot, Adam went and the license got, And as they stood there side by side, Old mother Eve became a bride.

The humor in this poetic version of the Bible always surprises me. For Example: "And quickly then the gossips said, That Eve and Adam soon would wed; And Eve was glad, and did rejoice To know that she was Adam's choice. Without a mansion, house, or cot, Adam went and the license got, And as they stood there side by side, Old mother Eve became a bride. No mother-in-law took him to task, He had no father-in-law to ask, No one, in fact, had aught to say, Eve simply gave herself away." or... "He made a coat for him to wear, Of many colors rich and rare, Of red and blue and black and green, And every shade that's found between. But Joseph used to dream some dreams, About his brothers, so it seems; Hence once when Joseph came in sight, they sold him to an Ishmaelite." It almost reminds me of the Bible by Dr. Seuss. Anyway, its a fun book if you can find it.

    I picked this up in an antique shop and I am already in love with it. It is a 200 page long poem of bible stories. It is wonderful, thoughtful and comical. I am thinking of buying a better copy of it, the one I got is pretty shabby.
