|Works by Premier Artists Make Children's Bible Uniquely Collectible Dec 24, 2009|
"My Holy Bible for African-American Children" was edited by Cheryl and Wade Hudson, who have won national acclaim as the authors and publishers of their Just Us Books (designed for a young multicultural reading audience). It is recommended for children aged 7-10 and is the first title in Zondervan Publishing's planned ZonderKidz series. Like all children's and standard new international version Bibles, the language in this one has been simplified and made more accessible for modern young readers than that included in a standard King James edition. Moreover, it includes such strategically placed supplemental texts as lyrics for the classic hymn, "Wade in the Water," and an excerpt from Kirk Franklin's more modern gospel standard, "Stomp."
A major plus for this Bible--and one that makes it uniquely collectible-- is the fact that it features the work of seven artists whose paintings bring to life both traditional biblical stories and empowering scenes from African-American history. The artists include: Pat Cummings, Nancy Devard, Shane Evans, Cathy Ann Johnson, Anna Rich, and Javaka Steptoe, and Michele Wood.
Wood, the award-winning illustrator for the children's books Going Back Home: An Artist Returns to the South and I See the Rhythm, is represented by a half dozen richly painted illustrations in the new Bible ranging from images that combine Christian faith and hip hop culture to that of Civil War abolitionist Harriet Tubman leading escaped slaves across a river. More abstract works by the artist serve as color frames for additional writings about "The African-American Worship Experience" and for "Inspirational Quotes."
