In the Beginning There was No Sky
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.
