Description

Excerpt from The Story of Stories The book differs from other Lives of Christ for children in two ways. First, a connected narrative and not a mere string of incidents is presented. The transitions in His life and the hinge-points of His ministry have been emphasised, so that every reader, however young, may in some measure understand how the idyll of Bethlehem could not but end in the tragedy and victory of Calvary. Secondly, while care has been taken to avoid theological terms, and always to use language which children at school can understand, an effort has been made to make plain the unique sigui ficance of the life of Jesus. He is described not only as the Carpenter of Nazareth, but also as the Saviour of the World. The glory which shines in all His words and deeds is explained, as His disciples explained it, by recognising Him as the Divine Lord.
