Recently, Thomas Nelson Publishers sent me the book His Name is Jesus, by Max Lucado to read and review.
When the book arrived, it was beautifully packaged in its own sturdy slipcover...a perfect gift for those who enjoy reading about the life of Jesus.
His Name is Jesus follows the footsteps of Jesus from his birth to his resurrection and beyond. Stunning illustrations allow you to see the glory of God's handiwork as you take the journey of His life.
Evident throughout the entire book is Max Lucado's powerful style of writing that has touched hearts the world over. He shows us the cold, drafty stable where Jesus was born and allows us a glimpse into the lives of Mary and Joseph. You will smell the fragrance of newly worked wood as Jesus goes about his daily life as a carpenter. You'll meet the woman who touched the hem of His garment, the leper who was healed and Lazarus, as he's raised from the dead.
You'll dine with Jesus and His disciples at the Last Supper, and spend time with Him in the Garden of Gethsemane. You'll feel His agony as He prays just before Judas brings the soldiers to take Him captive. You'll feel His exhaustion and excruciating pain as he bears the Cross, is nailed to it and gives up His life to save the sinners of the world.
Experience joy when Mary leads John and Peter to the Tomb and then realizes He has risen. You'll see His face and feel His presence as you read of the legacy He has left each of us.
This book is a poignant and heart touching look at the life of one man who changed the history of the world. It was especially touching to read during the week prior to Easter.
If you are interested in purchasing this beautifully written and illustrated book, it can be bought Here.
Happy Easter to all my friends and readers. ~Blessings, Mary~
