The Life of Jesus

Full Product Description

Outlines the life of Jesus, including some of his miracles and parables. Each story is beautifully illustrated. For reading to children aged 3-4 or reading by children aged 5-6.

Children who have only recently entered the world of words are chiefly concerned about one question- What do these words mean?

Isobel Tallach found that, while many secular books got down to the level of very young children, few Christian books did so. That is the main reason why she began to write what her 3 year old son came to call: ‘The book Mummy’s writing for David- and for Irene when she’s a bit bigger.’

This book outlines the life of Jesus, including some of this miracles and parables. Here, for the very young is the thrill of hearing the gospel told in words they can understand.

The stories are beautifully illustrated, but there are no pictures of Jesus.

The Life of Jesus by Isobel Tallach was published by Banner of Truth Trust in May 1982 and is our 23944th best seller. The ISBN for The Life of Jesus is 9780851513454.

The Life of Jesus For the Very Young, by Isobel Tallach, touches on many notable events in Jesus' life. It begins with the journey of Mary and Joseph and concludes as the Risen Christ is carried into Heaven in front of His disciples.

The author tells us the name Jesus means someone who saves. The book points out, "His father was not Joseph. His father was God." This is not always clear in books about Jesus. I also love this wording: "Joseph made a home for Mary and Jesus..."

The book tells us about Jesus as a boy in the temple and describes several of his miracles; including the healing of Jairus' daughter, feeding the 5000, and calming the storm on the Sea of Galilee. The parables of building a house on a rock, the Samaritan, and the Prodigal Son are included.

The crucifixion is described briefly and it does say, "His blood poured down." The author gives an explanation for why He was crucified: "Jesus came into the world to die, not for himself, but for those who had done wrong."

The colourful pencil sketches occur with every page and the ethnicity of the characters is true to the region.

The words are written in a conversational style, as if you were speaking directly to your preschooler or young grade schooler. The organization of the book and the writing style are unique.
