This is Jesus with artwork by J. Kirk Richards, LDS Blog Tour & Review

Book Summary:

The life of the Savior is portrayed in stunning fine art pieces by award-winning artist J. Kirk Richards. These striking new images were created by the artist exclusively for this book. Accompanied by a harmonized account of the Savior's ministry, Atonement, and Resurrection, these exquisite paintings reflect a deep reverence for Christ's mission and sacrifice. Each page is beautifully designed to complement the unique style of the artist. A perfect reminder of the true reason we celebrate the Easter season, this handsome volume will be treasured by the entire family for years to come.

My Review:

J. Kirk Richards has illustrated this book beautifully and it is set to New Testament scriptures telling the account of the end of Christ's life and his resurrection. What I really enjoyed was reading the scripture and then looking at the illustration and seeing that scene depicted. If you enjoy artwork, this book about our Savior is a must have for your home!

Happy Reading!!!
