Inside back cover: The Burning Bush, by Jerry Thompson.

As Moses tended sheep for his father-in-law, he saw a “bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush,” appointing him to go to Egypt to deliver the children of Israel. (Ex. 3:2–4)
