Jesus of Nazareth: The Story of His Life Written for Children

James Cardinal Gibbons was Archbishop of Baltimore when he asked Mother Mary Loyola to write this story of the Life of Our Lord.

As a revered author himself, and considering the number of such stories available even then, we can only imagine the admiration he must have held for Mother Loyola's rare talent for narrative.

She does not disappoint in this story, for as always, she brings to life the most vivid images of Our Lord, such that the children who read it will feel almost as if they were following the dusty paths Our Saviour trod.

Now enhanced with an abundance of contemporary engravings and lithographs, this newly typeset edition is an invaluable means of impressing upon the minds of young children the reality of God become Man.
