Illustrated Jesus Through the Centuries 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Years ago I was taught world history by a teacher who traveled the world visiting art museums, and chose to teach world history through art. This is a book that teaches the world's view (obviously simplified) of Jesus through the art of that time and through other supportive art. Awesome.
