“In the New Testament, the story of salvation begins with a child. Yes, a child: frail, needing attention, born in poverty but so strongly loved by Mary and her husband Joseph…”
Thus begins the wonderful story of the life of Jesus, retold in a lively, expert manner by a grandmother for her grandchildren and all other kids. From the comet star to angels, from the family of Jesus to his presence today as a friend, from the miraculous catch of fish to the multiplication of loaves to the calming of the storm, from the encounter with the Apostles to the encounter with Zachariah, the author clarifies the meaning of the episodes and key personalities of the Gospel, setting out the basic concepts of Christianity. She goes on to explain the meaning of prayers, the Good News, the Cross, the Resurrection, and other notions. There is also a valuable chapter on what Jesus said about himself.
A unique book that used the simple words of traditional fables to convey the Gospel’s timeless message of love.
