So, I could not help but wonder where was God in all of those. Then he was converted to Catholism and wrote this book. Solely based on the Scriptures, he wrote this book with the intention of introducing Christ to the non-believers or those who do not know Him. So, the book is in the prose form and it does not have footnotes or references to the Holy Bible (you know, the book titles, chapter and verse numbers).

Antiquarian & Collectible. by Dorothy Canfield Fisher 1st/6th.

In this book, over 75 events from the life of Christ -- from Mary's joyful 'Yes' to the glorious morning three days after the Crucifixion, when the disciples slowly came to realize the immense truth of the Risen Christ -- are brought alive by full colour illustrations and by the matchless poetry of the King James Bible. Angus McBride, the artist for this book, shows Jesus as a Jew, as a man who bore the marks of the toil, poverty and hardship of life in an obscure outpost of the Roman Empire, yet above all as one who to all he met -- and continues to meet -- gave healing and wholeness to the complete person. McBride's attention to detail and historical accuracy makes first-century Palestine a vivid world to the twentieth-century reader. And additional factual information on many of the social, political and religious currents of the time of Christ add to the modern reader's understanding of this man who never ceases to puzzle and intrigue -- and inspire.
Reviews about Life of Christ (7):
I remember purchasing this title about some twenty years ago. As i read the book i was amazed by the truthfulness of its author. He wrote with such clarity and unbiased words. I awe-struck and enjoyed every page written...that was some twenty
years ago. To date, i am still awe-struck as i read this precious copy of what i
throught was a lost book and forgotten author..but i was again blessed by my faith
in God as He opened up a door for me to receive this copy of such a well written and
marvelous story of the Life of Christ.i beleive that every student of biblical studies and pastor of various congregations should have such a book in his or her
library...a treasure that will last for sometime in the hearts and minds of its readers. it has the power of the holy spirit of move beyond one's often closed mind-set and allow them to enter into the reality of the birth of Christ and the first place he laid...in a manager.....one that we often never attribute to his laying nor the very environment that he was born in. from the striking reality of his environmental birth place, to the richness of his death on the cross, to the human touch into the lives of so many of his Father's creation in human-kind. this book
has found a forever place in my heart and among the many books of my blessed library. how i am glad that i finally found, by faith and pray, what i had sought God for, for so many years. thank amazonbooks...more so thank u Father.

This is a nice, large print CHILDREN'S picture book, about the life of Christ, with no single author credited. It is a British edition, in no way connected to anything Giovanni Papini wrote. Papini's is a 450 page novelized biography of Christ, with no illustrations, decidedly for an adult audience, translated into English from Italian in 1923. The above title, as nice as it is, is listed incorrectly, and has nothing to do with Papini or his novel, and should be listed as a children's book.
This book is old 1920's but is very poetic and puts into terms we can readily understand what Christ did for us. The Nativity is very moving and is always a holiday addition to our celebrations. For those that appreciate the holiday for the true meaning it is a moving explanation of the birth in the stable.

This book travels through the time that Christ was present in this world. It is a thought-provoking book, the language is beautiful and descriptive. I suggest spending the money for the copy to add to your library.
I find the pictures amazing. Makes the stories come alive.
A must read!
I bought this book while browsing through a used bookmarket. It was only 25cents. At the time I was studying theology at a school that was simply draining me mentally and spirtually and I found myself slowly drifting away from God. Part of the reason why I picked up the book was to try to fall in love with Jesus again - to hear a different voice speak about his life. Let me tell you, this is the finest book I've ever read on Jesus' life. Its not a critical biography, or a theological history - rather its written as a piece of dramatic literature. It was one of the few books I've read that was actually breath-taking. I can only liken it to reading Martin Luther, when you come across a certain saying of his that just jumps off the page and grabs you by the scruff of the neck. Papini has managed to do the same thing. His book is a balance of being incredibly thought-provoking, beautifully written, and orthodox as far as I could tell. Anyone who loves Christ, whether you are an evangelical, Catholic, or Orthodox will benefit from reading it.
