Description
									This book freshly reinterprets some of the oldest and best-known Bible stories and focuses on some of the many miracles that Jesus performed before his crucifixion. Jesus's miracles are endless; from the large harvest of fish to washing the unclean, healing the sick, feeding the poor, and walking on water, Jesus performs feats that draw in believers that he is the Son of God. Unfortunately it also attracts the attention of nonbelievers, who saddle him with the cross he must bear. After all of his miraculous acts, the book closes with a final wonder for all to see-one that changes faith and religion as the world knows it, forever.
							
Reviews

"Employing simple, child-friendly languageā€¦ the design and format of the spreads call to mind modern graphic novels. Despite the contemporary feel of the artwork and language, the illustrations are also replete with historically accurate details of life in biblical times...Hendrix eloquently conveys the life-changing power of faith in this distinctive snapshot of the life and teachings of Jesus, providing an appealing introduction to more complete collections of Bible stories." - School Library Journal

"When he speaks, his words burst into teeming flights of butterflies, lightning bolts, monumental wood and stone letters, or page-filling arrays of exclamatory display type...Brief of text but memorably illustrated." - Kirkus Reviews

"...These miracles give Hendrix the opportunity to showcase his inventive artwork, which forms letters from birds and butterflies and uses strong graphic elements to capture the wonder of Jesus' life...a visually exciting and fresh take on the age-old story." - Booklist

"...Hendrix enhances pivotal moments through his customary use of bold, hand-lettered text, giving dramatic visual power to the godly force behind Jesus' words...an emotional and approachable account of the gospel that should have broad Christian appeal." - Publishers Weekly

"Hendrix's retelling of the three years of Jesus' public ministry is clearly an authentic labor of love from the pen and brush of a true believer..." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
