The parables and teachings of Jesus are brought to life in John Hendrix’s award-winning illustrations
But Jesus was going somewhere.
His journey to find those most in need of him began anew each morning.
Jesus walked . . .
. . . and ever since, people have followed him.
Through parables of the good Samaritan and the prodigal son, the lost sheep and the beatitudes, Jesus taught his disciples the redeeming power of sacrificial love and showed mercy to everyone around him—especially the sick, the poor, and the downtrodden.
In this inspirational and richly illustrated book, John Hendrix brings to life the wisdom of Jesus. Interweaving hand lettering with his signature, award-winning art style, Hendrix captures the spirit of Jesus’s timeless message that will resonate with readers of any Christian faith. Backmatter includes an author’s note and a list of Bible passages that inspired the book.
