Notes From Your Bookseller

An allegorical tale that confronts the follies of willfully ignoring climate change, A Children's Bible can still be both moving and touching. Lydia Millet, a prolific writer who has a master's degree in environmental policy, paints a portrait of kids ultimately being the hope for our future.

"A blistering little classic." —Ron Charles, Washington Post

A Children’s Bible follows a group of twelve eerily mature children on a forced vacation with their families at a sprawling lakeside mansion. Contemptuous of their parents, the children decide to run away when a destructive storm descends on the summer estate, embarking on a dangerous foray into the apocalyptic chaos outside. Lydia Millet’s prophetic and heartbreaking story of generational divide offers a haunting vision of what awaits us on the far side of Revelation.
