Miracle Man : The Story of Jesus
"On a day that didn't seem at all unusual, there came an unusual Man. He looked like any other man, but he was like none who had ever lived before. This Man was God's son. When he spoke, his words made things happen. His words came alive." The story of Jesus is one of the oldest and best-known in human history, and it has been interpreted by countless writers and artists over the last two thousand years. In this beautifully written and illustrated take on the Miracle Man, John Hendrix focuses on the biblical accounts of Jesus's many miracles leading up to his crucifixion. The book includes an author's note and list of Bible stories that inspired this project. Hendrix once again interweaves his handlettering with artwork to create a book readers of any denomination will find special and enlightening..

"When he speaks, his words burst into teeming flights of butterflies, lightning bolts, monumental wood and stone letters, or page-filling arrays of exclamatory display type... Brief of text but memorably illustrated."--Kirkus "Hendrix's retelling of the three years of Jesus' public ministry is clearly an authentic labor of love from the pen and brush of a true believer..."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "...These miracles give Hendrix the opportunity to showcase his inventive artwork, which forms letters from birds and butterflies and uses strong graphic elements to capture the wonder of Jesus' life... a visually exciting and fresh take on the age-old story"--Booklist "...Hendrix enhances pivotal moments through his customary use of bold, hand-lettered text, giving dramatic visual power to the godly force behind Jesus' words...an emotional and approachable account of the gospel that should have broad Christian appeal."--Publisher's Weekly "...Hendrix eloquently conveys the life-changing power of faith in this distinctive snapshot of the life and teachings of Jesus, providing an appealing introduction to more complete collections of Bible stories."--School Library Journal
