Book Review: Jesus by Gennady Spirin

Jesus. Illustrated by Gennady Spirin. 2010. March 2010. Marshall Cavendish. 32 pages.

This picture book uses the text of the King James Version of the Bible. The book provides readers with details about Jesus' birth, life, death, resurrection, and ascension. It highlights key passages from the four gospels to share with readers (of all ages) the story of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

13 different events are highlighted within the book: The Annunciation, The Birth, The Baptism, The Boy Jesus in the Temple, The Fast and Temptation of Jesus, The Marriage in Cana, The Sermon on the Mount, The Transfiguration, The Raising of Lazarus, The Last Supper, The Crucifixion, The Resurrection, The Ascension.

I'm not the biggest fan of this artistic style. But you can't really go wrong with the text of this one! And it is nice to see a picture book biography of Jesus. So even though I'm not in love with the illustrations of this one--I am happy to see that there are books like this being published.
