This is a great book, and holds up nicely as a way to read Bible stories without reading the whole Bible. There are many things it skips, of course (the "begats" being one for which we are grateful). I read it in my childhood, and am now reading it to my son. We don't attend church, so he hasn't heard any of these stories, and he's getting to the phase in high school (and moving on to college) where to study Western Literature he needs to know the Biblical archetypes.
