The life of the Savior is portrayed in stunning fine art pieces by award-winning artist J. Kirk Richards. These striking new images were created by the artist exclusively for this book. Accompanied by a harmonized account of the Saviors ministry, Atonement, and Resurrection, these exquisite paintings reflect a deep reverence for Christs mission and sacrifice. Each page is beautifully designed to complement the unique style of the artist. A perfect reminder of the true reason we celebrate the Easter season, this handsome volume will be treasured by the entire family for years to come.

This is a beautiful book that portrays the life of Christ and is especially perfect for Easter. The text is taken directly from the scriptures. It follows the life of the Savior from his ministry to the resurrection. The artwork is beautifully done and matches the text well. The message is quite powerful. I especially loved the message at the very beginning and then how it came full circle at the end. This book can be enjoyed throughout the year and will work well as a gift for any occasion.
