Excerpt

sleep, which was no dream, but as is supposed in an extasy or in a trance; in which was showed to him the celestial court. Wherefore when he awoke he prophesied of the conjunction of Christ to his church, and of the flood that was to come, and of the doom and destruction of the world by fire he knew, which afterward he told to his children.

Whiles that Adam slept, God took one of his ribs, both flesh and bone, and made that a woman, and set her tofore Adam. Which then said: This is now a bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; and Adam gave her a name like as her lord, and said she should be called virago, which is as much as to say as made of a man, and is a name taken of a man. And anon, the name giving, he prophesied, saying: Because she is taken of the side of a man, therefore a man shall forsake and leave father and mother and abide and be adherent unto his wife, and they shall be two in one flesh; and though they be two persons, yet in matrimony and wedlock they be but one flesh, and in other things

Happily this volume includes not just the commonly known stories (David and Goliath, Noah and the Ark, Freebie and the Bean) but several lesser known and very intriguing stories. My favorite; Macateus, the Brave Little Barber.

Macateus the Barber was a young Roman soldier assigned to serve Pontius Pilate, keeping his hair trimmed and looking fine. Well, one fine day Macateus the Barber accidentally nicked the ear of Pontius Pilate, causing the Magistrate some pain. Pontius Pilate immediately ordered Macateus to be crucified in the plaza. Fortunately, John the Baptist pleaded to Pontius Pilate to spare the life of Macateus...which he did. In gratitude, Macateus the Barber offered to wash and style the greasy, matted hair of John the Baptist...but John refused.
