The Life of Jesus

by Sophie Piper


Price: £9.99
Publisher:Lion Hudson
Published:January 2013
Though in the same style and series as Our Father, 10 Commandments, My First Holy Communion, and Psalms, Prayers and Praises this is a more 'grown up' book for want of a better term, being aimed I would think at a slightly older child given the size of type being used. It does though make a fantastic 'Bible' addition to these hardback gift books with gold foiled covers. It is particularly good for those who want to give a gift book with the story of Jesus' life. Each story has the corresponding reference to where it can be found in the Bible, and there is a great short introduction that introduces Jesus and how the Bible contains a collection of stories about him. It would be suitable for the widest range of occasions but perhaps most perfect for someone new to the church, or making their first communion, or being confirmed. Beautiful illustrations by Angelo Ruta and well written stories make this a lovely gift book.
