About the Book

The verses herein tell the story of the Book of Genesis, from the fall of Lucifer to the death of Joseph. Each verse is in rhyming form and easily readable. The author’s purpose is to translate, so to speak, the heavy and archaic language in Genesis into a form that would make the stories contained in that book appeal to readers of all ages, but particularly to younger readers. There are 19 poems comprising 255 verses in the book.
