The Honey and the Fires

GBP 11.99

by Roger Pulvers

Published originally in Australia by ABC Books and HarperCollins, and in Japanese translation by the major publishing house Shueisha, THE HONEY AND THE FIRES is a retelling of some of the most powerful stories from the Bible for our day and age. This new paperback edition contains a story that did not appear in the original publication: “The Story of Adam and Eve – Narrated by a Snake.”

Roger Pulvers has brilliantly captured the essence of these time-honored tales in often bold and lyrical language that makes this book both timeless and of our time.
