In the Beginning There Was No Skyby Walter, Jr. JR. JR. JR. JR. Wangerin
Synopses & Reviews
So begins Walter Wangerin's marvelous retelling of the biblical creation story. In Wangerin's hands, the Genesis account becomes a beautiful love story between the mighty God of the universe and a child — the reader, the listener — who is the object of all God's creative efforts.
The rich, evocative language and the uniquely personal tone of this story invite intimate family read-aloud times and evoke delight and wonder. Luminous watercolor illustrations by artist Lee Steadman complement and enhance the text.
A parent tells a child a personalized version of how God created the world.
