Within its pages, different aspects of the life of Jesus are explored in an open and critical way, using contemporary images, symbols and related events to extend the narrative - a method that echoes the way the Gospels themselves are written.

    In total, 22 key events have been interpreted through the artists vibrant artwork, accompanied by the related Bible texts in a modern translation (Contemporary English Version).

    In The Life of Jesus Through the Eyes of an Artist, painter Paul Forsey takes a fresh look at the biblical stories, with the aim of changing the way children understand the New Testament, writes Maggie Hartford ... Four Advent scenes with a contemporary feel, commissioned by the Oxford Diocese, were so successful that Forsey was asked to paint another 18 events in Jesuss life for this book ... Intended for children aged seven to 11, the books text is taken directly from Bible passages in contemporary English selected by Jo Fageant, Oxford diocesan adviser for religious education ... She has also written a teachers guide with David Barton, a former headteacher who is a former chair of governors at Isis Middle School in Oxford.
