In the same series as "Saints, Angels, Myths, and Mary", the fifth book in this very successful format is "Bible Stories". All the major episodes from both the Old and New Testaments are retold by art historians Martina Degl'Innocenti and Stella Marinone, authors of "Mary", and beautifully illustrated with depictions of biblical tales through history. In addition to the paintings and sculpture of masters both classical and modern, the authors have drawn upon the rich visuals of film, including archetypal images such as the parting of the Red Sea in Cecil B. DeMille's "Ten Commandments".
Martina Degl'Innocenti and Stella Marinone are art historians specializing in reiligious painting and sculpture. They live in Italy.
