Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Wildsmith portrays Jesus of Nazareth in a series of pictures that look like they should be hanging in a museum or serve as alter pieces in a cathedral. Beginning with Jesus' birth, baptism, role as a teacher and preacher and miracle worker, he ends with Jesus' death, resurrection and ascension into heaven. The text is almost superfluous. The entire story is presented visually in pictures filled with wonderful details and surrounded by gilded frames in a variety of shapes and designs. 2000, Eerdmans, $20.00. Ages All. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
The traditional look of gold-framed illustrations give the reader the impression of walking through a beautiful church while admiring the stained glass windows! This beautifully told story of Jesus is a gift to delight anyone, and especially suitable for a religious occasion. 2000, Eerdmans Book for Young Readers, $20.00. Ages 3 to 10. Reviewer: A. Braga SOURCE: Parent Council, September 2001 (Vol. 9, No. 1)
