This book is not about replacing the Bible, but portraying the Bible in a different way which hopefully will appeal to many. The author has converted many of the Bible stories from the Old Testament into rhyming verse and has something to offer from each of the thirty nine books. These are very short bursts of scripture as much in the Old Testament is repetitive. The New Testament, however has been covered almost in full and as a whole the book is intended to appeal to all ages. It has rhythm in its presentation and includes illustrations.
Poetry appears in the Bible in numerous forms throughout both the Old and the New Testaments, from the book of Job and the psalms to the letters from Paul. Its use provides a heightened awareness of the message conveyed; it exposes depths of meaning that apply to each individuals inner murmurings and elevates the holy text to endless levels of perception. In The Rhythm of Job, author Robert McFadden offers a unique presentation of the longest and oldest poem of the Old Testament, the book of Job, which explores humanitys struggle to understand suffering under the shadow of a loving God. McFadden seeks to illuminate the original cadence and parallelism of Job through the use of a side-by-side paraphrasing of the book as it appears in the King James Bible. In doing so, he creates a fresh rhythm while retelling this enduring story. This poetic adaptation reveals the lessons from the book of Job in the form of an epic poem that both honors the original text and brings new life to this timeless tale.
Old and New Testament stories about Biblical characters are arranged in three sections: Children of the Bible, Women of the Bible, and Men of the Bible. Includes related songs, plays, and rhythm poems.
"In reading parts of The King James Version* of the Bible, l have found a great deal of syllabic rhythm, which has added considerably to my appreciation of the work as literature. After investigation it appeared that all critics and scholars who had commented upon the matter had come to the same conclusion, but that no-one was explicit about how it could be shown precisely. This thesis was undertaken to examine the rhythmical texture of AV with exactitude, and then to draw certain conclusions that could less easily be gainsaid than the opinions derived from subjective impressions." --

This book began as a learning exercise as the author endeavored to explain to his Russian-speaking students how rhyme and meter were used in the English language. Designed primarily as a reading aid and an educational tool, it's been created with the following ideas in mind: 1) Reading should be a fun experience. 2) It is not necessary to simplify the Bible to make it understandable for young audiences. 3) Pronounceability leads to usability. Children do not naturally have a harsh distinction between hard and easy words. Either a word is familiar or unknown. There's no need to shy away from advanced vocabulary if it is explainable. Vividly illustrated and meticulously crafted in a poetic style, while appealing to young readers, this is the Bible as it has never been rendered before. This first volume covers the entire book of Genesis, from Adam and Eve and the fall of Mankind to the eve of Israel's dramatic Exodus from Egypt.
