The Life of Christ As It's Never Been Told Before Every scene, in wondrous prose, comes to life anew in this powerful book. How might a literary artist write the incomparable story of Christ for our time? God said so much in the life of his Son, our perfect Savior and his fullest Word. The most beautiful poem in the world occurred when God spoke his Word in time: God's divine poem performed, as old Simeon says, "in the sight of all nations." As readers walk through these pages, sensory detail brings life to the story of Jesus in Roman-occupied Judea of the first century, his words and life unfolding across the major scenes of the Gospels with renewed significance. Christ the Life tells the story of "the consolation of the ages" in a fresh and compelling way to the next generation.
