Overview

An extraordinary new edition of Frank Sheed’s classic work. His masterful account of the life of Christ Jesus stands on its own, but Christ walks again among the pages of this book in a unique way: over 100 illustrations from the French artist James Tissot’s outstanding series on the Life of Christ have been carefully selected and chronologically placed. Tissot’s dynamic realism, combined with Sheed’s lucid prose, make this one of the most beautifully illustrated and profoundly moving lives of Our Lord ever published.

Here we meet Christ in his obedience, his compassion, his tears, his joy, his relation to Mary and the disciples, and in his unequalled and unsparing words that mined the depths of reality, and of real lives. We come to know Christ as he touched the lives of each person among the multitudes that followed him, and we realize that he is with us likewise--in each moment of our own lives.

This modern spiritual classic offers the reader an in-depth study of Jesus Christ as he lived and spoke in the Gospels. Sheed employs wide learning, profound spiritual insight, and a lucid style to bring the reader to a deep personal encounter with the living Lord.

    An easy yet interesting read.

    Frank Sheed does it again in his inimitable style, humanizing the divine family. Should bring you a little closer to Jesus, Mary, and Joseph and the times in which they lived,and their daily encounters.
