An overzealous attempt to bring Bible stories down to the level of the most thick-headed primary-grader has resulted in pages of benumbing reiteration on the order of: "". . . Abraham and Sarah had no children. His helpers had children. His nephew Lot had children. In the tents of Abraham and Sarah there were no children. They were sad that they had no children."" Many other adaptations (pick any now on your shelves) have accomplished simplification with more style and concision, and, in any case, the illustrator's fumbling attempts to portray human emotion don't match up to the pictures we used to see in Sunday school bulletins. Ineptly inspirational.
