The stories about the life of Jesus from the Gospels  are a cornerstone of Western culture. Today, when religion is both omnipresent and strangely absent from children’s lives, this version of the Gospels is presented to readers in the proper cultural context. It is as a narrative of great interest, both for the compelling quality of the life it reveals and for the deep, resonant role it continues to play for all who live in today's world. Celia Barker Lottridge brings her award-winning gifts of storytelling to relate Jesus’s life and his teachings. The parables are so freshly told that they seem new again. Their power shines throughout the book, while Linda Wolfsgruber’s rich illustrations — influenced by her childhood in the deeply Catholic Sud Tyrol (today Alto Adige) and her acquaintance with the iconographic roots of the stories — bring historical significance to this book.
