Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0670873136, Hardcover)Through the centuries that have passed since the birth of Jesus, millions have found inspiration in the story of His life. Nowhere are the beauty, the suffering and the joy of that story more vividly told than through the work of the great artists it has inspired, including Botticelli, Fra Angelico, Giotto, and many others. Mary Pope Osborne's fresh retelling of the tale that begins with the birth of a baby in a stable combines with some of the world's great masterpieces of Renaissance art to produce a beautiful celebration of the life of Jesus. At the back of the book, the title, artist, and date of each work is noted. Based on the gospels and handsomely produced with fifth-color gold ink, The Life of Jesus is a book to treasure for readers of any religious faith. Mary Pope Osborne is the author of more than thirty books for young readers, including One World, Many Religions, Rocking Horse Christmas and the Magic Tree House series.
