Description

Garland Reference Library of the Humanities (Vol. 127)

From the Introduction: What exactly is a "Thumb Bible"? It has been variously described as an abstract, an epitome, a summary, a synopsis, a paraphrase, or an abridgement of the Bible…. It is an attempt to summarize the entire Bible within a tiny volume written for children. It may be in prose or in verse or even in pictures, but it is a condensed version of either one or both Testaments, usually the latter, but it is not a complete book of the Bible nor is it a book of Bible texts or quotations.
