A dark November afternoon-wet, and windy, and wild. The New York streets were at their worst-sloppy, slippery, and sodden; the sky lowering over those murky streets one uniform pall of inky gloom. A bad, desolate, blood-chilling November afternoon. And yet Mrs. Walraven's ball was to come off to-night, and it was rather hard upon Mrs. Walraven that the elements should make a dead set at her after this fashion. The ball was to be one of the most brilliant affairs of the season, and all Fifth Avenue was to be there in its glory. Fifth Avenue was above caring for anything so commonplace as the weather, of course; but still it would have been pleasanter, and only a handsome thing in the clerk of the weather, considering Mrs. Walraven had not given a ball for twenty years before, to have burnished up the sun, and brushed away the clouds, and shut up that icy army of winter winds, and turned out as neat an article of weather as it is possible in the nature of November to turn out.

Known as the "book of books," the Bible is the most successful bestselling book of all times. It lays the foundations for the worldview and moral stance of followers of all monotheistic religions. Beyond its religious significance and its contribution to the faith in one God, the Bible presents a framework that provides meaning and value to human existence in our world. The Bible provides lifestyle guidance, and suggests responses to crisis situations that are inevitable in human life. For the religious and non-religious alike, the Bible constitutes an important source of cultural heritage, worldviews, fundamental values, and basic codes of social conduct and personal beliefs. What is the secret of the Bible's perpetual appeal and the value attributed to it by so many individuals? The Bible presents the entire range of human characteristics, positive and negative. No human emotion or feeling, no matter how difficult or subversive, is foreign to the Bible. The Bible covers it all. Examination of the stories and contents of the Bible reveals their interest to all ages and across the ages. Thousands of years old, the stories continue to resonate with us, deepening our self-awareness and awareness of those around us. Nevertheless modern psychology and psychiatry have made relatively very little use of these materials, being based largely on a classical Greek view of mental life. Instead, much of traditional psychotherapy has been based on classical Greek foundation legends (for example, Oedipus, Electra, and Narcissus). This view unfortunately seems to carry the tragic vision of classical Greece into modern life. In this view, no real change is possible, whereas in the Biblical stories, life is not tragic but hopeful, and people can and do change. The idea that people's lives are not determined and that people have free will to change things around them is essential in empowering people to fight for social justice, and to generally show concern for other people. In this book, we present seven Biblical tales, ordered to the days of Creation. Just as God created the Earth in the Biblical tales, so it is that we can create our own journeys, filled with insight, ingenuity and compassion. Each of these stories has been adapted for children in pre K-5th grades. Commentaries, questions and activities follow each story. We suggest using these stories to deepen a child's understanding of the ebb and flow of life. Because the Bible addresses human emotions and human interactions, its stories seem to provide appropriate means of encouraging interest in and discussion of fundamental human issues, fostering social skills and values.
