Regarding the illustrations, the Foreword begins: "It will be obvious to anyone who inspects this book that it is less a handsome edition of "The Green Pastures" with illustrations by Robert Edmond Jones than it is a collection of Robert Edmond Jones' drawings accompanied by the text of the play. It is a happy experience for the author to find his work in such magnificent company."
