Book of Life, The: The New Testament Retold
In a magnificent feat of imagination and scholarship, Henri Daniel-Rops takes us back to the very foundation of Christianity, to the secret meetings of a persecuted community, and back even further to the life of the One who changed the world forever.
Beginning with the appearance of the Angel to a young girl in Nazareth, he traces the fascinating story of Christ, His youth, teaching ministry, first disciples, many miracles . . . and, in the end, His betrayal, trial, death on the Cross, as well as His triumphant Resurrection, later appearnces and Ascension.
It’s a story that can’t be told too often, a story for young and old, rich and poor: the story of our salvation.Also see the companion, Old Testament book: The Book of Books
For ages 8 to 88.
