Marianna Mayer is well-known for her many lovely books on subjects ranging from the religious to retellings of classic fairy tales. In Seeing Jesus in His Own Words Ms. Mayer has selected a variety of short and meaningful quotes from the Gospels of the New Testament, highlighting such universal values as compassion, forgiveness, generosity, and humility. These words of Jesus are placed side by side with stunning works of art from the Medieval and Renaissance periods up through the present day. This beautifully illustrated book features the same richly-colored, elegant design as her recently published titles, The Twelve Apostles and The Real Santa Claus, making it an ideal gift for many occasions, and for readers of all ages.
