Jesus

£12.50

‘Jesus’ is an illustrated book that tells the story of Christ in simple text given in English, Arabic and Hebrew. The spark of the idea for this book came in Ethiopia when author Joanna Brown stumbled across paintings by contemporary Ethiopian artist, Nebiyu Assefa, who uses the traditional Coptic Church style with a beautiful modern clarity. Each picture visualizes a key moment in the Jesus-story.

Joanna has combined these with sepia photographs of her own journeys in the Holy Land that celebrate the warm hospitality, forgiveness and inspiring work for peace that she encountered in those who had also suffered much fear and hardship.

As Joanna states in her introduction:
The life and teachings of Jesus have boundless depths and if acted on can often turn things upside down. We live with paradox: simplicity interwoven with complexity, weakness with strength, and clarity with mystery … I pray that in the midst of conflict we remember our common humanity, that we have courage to step through fear to love and hope, and that we find joy in our differences.

This book has been described by Professor Alastair McIntosh as:
A visual theology, by which the light of Christ is brought to bear on present times, and present times shed light on happenings and their human face two thousand years ago.

Some of the book illustrations are also available as postcards.
