The O.T. Abridged, Illustrated


Once upon a time, and a very good time it was, God walked in a garden with Adam and Eve in the cool of the day. Eve and Adam were naked, perhaps He was, too.

We have no record about what they discussed. Perhaps the symphony of birdsong, the perfume of the never fading flowers, the always perfectly ripe fruit multi-hued in the golden light?


That was before the fratricide and the subsequent drowning of the puppies and kittens in the sad days when fruit rotted and raptors shrieked and reeking carcasses bloated.

Begetting, covenants, sacrifices, oracles, famines, plagues, kings, concubines, wars, circumcision, prophecies, etc.


A good bit later, according to the Hebrew arrangement of scrolls, God spoke his last recorded words an individual.

They were addressed to boil-encrusted Job regarding the awesomeness of whales.
