Review:
A book to present to a young person receiving their first Holy Communion, with presentation page at the front and pages at the back to list those who attended, special memories and photos of the occasion.
Told as if by Jesus himself, the stories of the Bible are set out from the Creation, Abraham, and the Exodus to the birth of Jesus, His life on earth, the Last Supper, the Crucifixion and His Resurrection, all are illustrated tastefully and graphically by watercolours sketched in with ink, always an attractive format.
The final pages set out useful prayers and the Apostles Creed.
A welcome addition to the Redemptorist list.
