Overview

The Gospels: A Vault on the Life of Jesus Christ features the story of Christ's extraordinary ministry not only through the holy scriptures of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, but through centuries of artistic depictions of the Savior's life. Selected events of Christ's childhood, ministry, death and resurrection are lavishly illustrated with a rich pallet of artistic media that spans over 2,000 years. Paintings, sculptures, drawings, etchings, textiles, carvings, and mosaics from the ancient to the modern are woven together to create a breathtaking overview of His life. Many of the artworks found in this book are famous, but there are also numerous fascinating pieces of art from some of the world's lesser-known collections. The text, presented alongside actual scripture, provides an easy-to-understand framework for a deeper insight into the events depicted on the pages, the artists represented, and the historical backdrop against which the art was created. A historic timeline and ancient maps are tucked into pockets, providing the reader with additional guides to follow the life of Christ, along with removable scriptures and parables. The Gospels provides families with a fascinating springboard with which they can better understand Jesus, the times he lived in, and the artwork that has made Him the most recognized face in the history of the world. 144 Pages, Hardcover with slipcase, 12"x10".
