The Easter Story: According To The Gospels Of Matthew, Luke And John From The King James Bible

According to the Gospels of Matthew, Luke, and John from the King James Bible.The story of Christ's death on the cross and his resurrection three days later is the central drama of Christianity. Gennady Spirin elegantly depicts the events leading up to and following the crucifixion, from Christ's entry into Jerusalem to the Last Supper to the descent of the Holy Spirit on the disciples. In the tradition of the great masters before him, Mr. Spirin pays close attention to symbolic and religious detail. He portrays Jesus as the light that came into a somber world of sin, and ends the book with the promise of the resurrection.Gennady Spirin has been described in the Boston Globe as an artist who "truly represents the picture book as an object of art." Drawing on his Orthodox Christian faith, he delivers a work of dignity and beauty.

This book is a great visual guide for children to get to know the Gospel story, esepcially the events of Holy Week. My children took this book with them when we went to church for services during Holy Week and because the text is from the Bible, they have now even memorized much of the scriptural account because we've read it over and over. Gennady Spirin is also a very talented and captivating illustrator. We have several other books illustrated by him.

This is the second book by Gennady Spirin that I have purchased for my child. I love it not only for the beautiful artwork, but also for the King James text that is used.

Spirin's illustrations are wonderful, as always. All text is taken directly from the Gospels. A great addition to church children's library.
