This book presents the story of Jesus in its setting. The episodes from Jesus' life are told through extracts and adaptations from the gospels, carefully selected and arranged to present his birth and boyhood, the start of his ministry, his teachings, parables and miracles, his friends and enemies, the events leading up to his death and the impact of the resurrection. These are all linked to information about where the events took place, the historical background and how the gospels came to be written. Throughout the book are numerous insights into how Jesus' teaching and example are reflected in the life of the Christian church today. The result is a refreshing, appealing and accessible one-stop guide to learning about Jesus. It is as suitable for people with little Christian background as for children being brought up in Christian families.
