During the early years of Christianity, tales of Jesus' youth flourished--from his childhood play and schooling to his early ability to heal the sick. Today, these wonderful stories are largely unknown. With this lush book, which begins with the nativity and ends with Jesus' earliest teachings, Marianna Mayer splendidly revives many of them. Illustrated with the works of such masters as Caravaggio and da Vinci, here is a stunning portrait of a boy at once ordinary and extraordinary, human and divine.
