No cost has been spared to make
this book one of the most beautiful
of all time. Its purpose- to bring
the Bible back to its ancient and
rightful place as the center of
family living and thought.
Bible is the world's greatest
work of literary art, and Michel–

that would combine the two.

" We went to great lengths to
make this book worthy of its con –
tents . For example, the presenta–
tion box is adorned with a view
of the Sistine Chapel ceiling. Over

original as possible- printed in
full color and surrounded with
a gold-color background .
"All the artwork- 121 pages–
was printed by Albert Skira, of
Geneva , Switzerland- the world 's

teams logged thousands of miles

" The illustrations are accom–
panied by my explanatory text to
show how vital a part the great
Biblical stories played in the crea–

" I feel privileged to have helped
produce this work, and believe
you can take great satisfaction in
its ownership. Were Michelangelo
alive today, I think he, too, would
take pride and pleasure in it."
