This guide selects and analyzes 134 of these books that both meet high critical standards and show respect for their Old and New Testament source as a traditional literary universe of sacred numina. Here presented individually with extended, number-coded annotations, these storybooks are argued to have a figurative profundity inseparable from their appeal to children. They are categorized into three basic types and indexed by author, illustrator, title, subject, and level of difficulty.
