The perfect resource for anyone intrigued by the character and message of Jesus, this highly visual guide presents his life, work, and background in amazing detail
Written in a lively and accessible style and illustrated throughout with full-color maps and photos, this one-stop guide offers a highly visual look at Jesus--covering who he was, what he taught, and why. While for many he is the very incarnation of God on earth and the source of salvation, for others he is at best a wise teacher and great moralist and at worst a dangerous fanatic. Outlining the key themes and teachings of this amazing man's life, the book is arranged into five sections: his background, his beginning, his mission, his death and resurrection, and his impact. Each of the 50 spreads, arranged thematically, contains short pieces of text alongside a variety of photographs, maps, or diagrams, as well as a colored band indicating an appropriate Bible book and a timeline that enables the reader to see the historical context of the material.
