 Reviews:

"This slight and brief sketch is merely the story of the life and death of our Lord. It has been written for those who have not the leisure, or the books, needed for threading together the fragmentary and scattered incidents recorded in the four Gospels. Of late years these records have been searched diligently for the smallest links which might serve to complete the chain of those years of a life passed amongst us as Jesus of Nazareth, the Carpenter, the Prophet, and the Messiah. This little book is intended only to present the result of these close investigations made by many learned men, in a plain continuous narrative, suitable for unlearned readers."—Henry S. King & Co. (1875).

"A well-written and concise narrative, which describes the wonderful story with a forcible simplicity that will appeal to all readers."—Hour (1876).

"Will be very useful in the more advanced classes of the Sunday-school, and is also suitable for a Sunday-school prize."—Church Review (1876).

"The story is presented in a plain and attractive manner."—Rock (1876).

"It is invaluable."—Sunday-School Quarterly Journal (1876).

Will be of more value and interest than any number of ordinary sermons.—Christian World (1879).

This is a book for all seasons . . . Many will value this new work of her hands.—Nonconformist (1879).

This book is a combination of the four Gospels into one storyline of Christ's life. Included are his birth, miracles, teachings, death, and resurrection. It "has been written for those who have not the leisure, or the books, needed for threading together the fragmentary and scattered incidents recorded in the four Gospels." Thirty two works of art by Heinrich Hofmann, Bernard Plockhorst and others, help visualize this rich time in history. The text is updated to modern language.—Curiosmith (2015).
