Archibald Rutledge retells 55 Bible stories, each in verse and in a first-person voice. As Rutledge explain in the book's Foreword:
In this little book it has not been my intent to take any liberties with the Bible. I have merely embellished some of the truly great stories, which, while noble, seem now and then to lack sufficient details and color. I have not changed anything, and have striven to be accurate and to be reverent. If, here and there, there may be a little faint humor, the original context suggests that.
Archibald Rutledge (1883–1973) was South Carolina's first poet laureate, and a prolific and beloved writer of out-of-doors prose, with over eighty books published.
