Excerpt from the forward: “In this little volume we are presenting a different kind of book, one that contains the Life of Christ in word and picture. The words are the inspired words of the Four Evangelists woven into one complete story. This greatest of all stories falls into four convenient parts: the Birth and Infancy of Christ, the Public Life, the Passion and Death, the Resurrection and Ascension."
“This book is so divided that it furnishes suitable reading for each day of the year.... Each open page of this book presents a picture and texts for one day’s reading and meditation....”
