I was so pleased to find this book. Though written in 1939, the language is clear and straight-forward and accessible. On the back is a note from the author - I assume it was originally a preface. Hunt writes, "....The reason the same story takes so much longer to tell in this book is that the men who wrote the Gospels just went straight on and hardly even stopped to explain anything. They couldn't be expected to know how differently we would live, and that we would have forgotten how people dressed and spoke and built their houses, and the other customs they had in those days. So in this book, I have to stop and explain all the time, but after you have read it, a good deal of the explaining will have been done, and you can start reading the Gospels yourself anytime you want." Well, my own kiddo has renewed her interest in the Bible after just a few pages with this book. Its retelling is gentle and warm, and the artwork is just enough to lend interest. The illustrator is Ted Schluenderfritz (that's 14 letters in that there name, folks, and typing all that just goes to prove his artwork for this book is worth taking note of!) A portfolio of his work can be seen at [...] This is an excellent book for reading aloud to pre-K's up to young readers. It shines as a religious ed. text for homeschoolers in early to mid elementary.

I was blessed to have received "A Life of Our Lord for Children" as a gift to read to my children. They are always eager for me to read from this book, and I have found that I have learned a few things myself. Marigold Hunt writes in a way to make it easy for the young children to grasp the content, but without boring my older children either (ages 3-11). I recently gave this book to another family as a gift, so that they can be blessed too.

Here is another great book for kids that brings the life of Our Lord alive for them. My kids love this book too and it is one that they have re-read over again.

Highly recommend

We have bought some religious books for our children in the past that had received great reviews, but were very dry or over their heads, so I was a little skeptical about this one.

Happily, I can report that this one is far from dry and holds the attention of our four and six year old boys (the audience is a little older, I believe, but there is still plenty they absorb). My husband and I enjoy it also.

I would definitely recommend this book for anyone wanting to help their children understand the Gospels more. Marigold Hunt fulfills her goal as she states it on the back of the book of explaining life during the time of Christ from how they lived, dressed, spoke and other customs. She gives great historical background and explanation in an engaging and entertaining way. My children love this book and couldn't wait to read the next book over Acts called "The First Christians".

Her books bring the Bible to life. My children say that her book makes everything make sense. I learned a lot from the book and the next as well especially about the Mass is not something created during the Middle Ages but based off of the Scripture and traditions of Christ and the first Christians.

When we read this book, we started with this book first followed by the Gospels. Prior to reading this book, they found the Gospels confusing at times. Now, having learned about life and customs back then, things that did not make sense make sense and they can see and are excited about seeing more in the Gospels. When we read her book The First Christians, we read the sections of the Acts in the Bible first for each chapter followed by the corresponding chapter in her book. I have never seen my kids so excited about reading the Bible now that they can understand what is going on more. It is really neat.
