India book House Education Trust is to be congratulated for publishing this excellent
pictorial life of Jesus Christ, which is a matter of great satisfaction for me to recommend
to all readers. It tells the story of Jesus, clearly and simply, with excellent
illustrations that faithfully reproduce the local colour and costumes of the time Christ
lived, for which much research has certainly been done. This book is another witness to the
general truth that the life of Christ is a restatement of the permanent values of human
living, the brotherhood of man and the need for charity and right action in society.
Today, "Christ-like" is the word used to describe a noble-hearted, gentle, humane
and selfless person. This book is the story of Christ who is regarded as the embodiment of
the best qualities in human nature a man who lived 2, 000 years ago. The life and career
of Christ are comparatively the best-documented events in ancient history; in fact, history
divides itself into epochs one before Christ and one after him.
This book gives you, in pictures, the story of Christ drawn from four contemporary
life sketches called the Gospels written by his disciples. The Gospels are an important
section of the Christian scriptures or the Bible. They are the main source of the teachings
of Christ contained in this narrative. They present wise sayings and practical instructions,
episodes describing with compassion the human situation, or exposing wickedness and evil,
giving profound lessons on charity and love. The Son of Man, as Jesus Christ like to call
himself, serenely goes through the crowded pages of the Gospels, preaching, healing,
comforting, helping and loving and not seeking any power or advantage for himself. His
enemies set themselves up against him and ultimately succeeded in hiving him condemned to
death on a cross. As he had foretold, he rose again after his death, proving that he was
indeed the Son of god. His followers passed on their faith in Jesus to others, and thus the
Christian Church spread.
Whether one is a Christian or not, one cannot fail to be drawn to this man who spoke
of goodness with wisdom and power, and brought comfort and peace to men of goodwill.
