The timeless characters of the earliest period in biblical history come alive in contemporary language and reveal again the ageless wisdom gained from their experience of the human encounter with the divine.
"The classic companion for sixty years of the late Brooks Hays speaks for herself in warm and witty sketches of Old Testament characters. Everyone who teaches a Sunday school class or goes to one (or, for that matter, knows he should) will laugh and learn with Mrs. Hays. Brook's favorite term for Marion was "l.m." (little manager). She manages to help us all."
