I’m currently reading this book I bought from Biblio a few weeks back. It’s a retelling of the story of Jesus Christ. I just started this yesterday so I’m just in the first few chapters, but I cannot help but fall in love with the story all over again. It is, after all, the story that changed my life. I grew up in Sunday School but I honestly didn’t really get to know Jesus until I was well into my late 20’s. It always felt like something passed on from my parents, since I didn’t have a choice about it when I was young. As any Sunday School-raised child will eventually find out, your faith is something personal. For me, even if I grew up hearing about Jesus, it would take a long time before I took a good, hard look into what I really believed in. It was a long journey to come into my own faith, and the more I probe and explore it, the deeper it grows.
This is an interesting take on the story of Jesus, and while it may take a few artistic liberties (as the author acknowledged), it points the reader back to the Gospels according to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
