This Is Jesus, Art by J. Kirk Richards

Here's another gift book just in time for Easter. This book contains the scriptural account of Jesus Christ's life and teaching, his crucifixion and resurrection. The passages of scripture accompany J. Kirk Richards inspiring and unique paintings. If you're looking for the perfect something to give, you might check out this book. It's an excellent display piece and great for families, grandparents, parents, etc.
About the book: The life of the Savior is portrayed in stunning fine art pieces by award-winning artist J. Kirk Richards. These striking new images were created by the artist exclusively for this book. Accompanied by a harmonized account of the Saviors ministry, Atonement, and Resurrection, these exquisite paintings reflect a deep reverence for Christs mission and sacrifice. Each page is beautifully designed to complement the unique style of the artist. A perfect reminder of the true reason we celebrate the Easter season, this handsome volume will be treasured by the entire family for years to come.

Rachelle's Thoughts: This is a beautiful book of art of the Savior. The paintings are rendered in an impressionistic style and I like how it invites contemplation over the account of Jesus's crucifixion and resurrection. Richards style is different than a lot of the gift books I have with paintings of the Savior. Richards' style is unique and I'm happy to have this book as part of my collection.

About the Artist:Figurative artist J. Kirk Richards is known for his accomplishments as a painter of Judeo-Christian subject matter. While not all of his work is overtly religious, the majority of his themes stem from spiritual ideas and narratives. His paintings exhibit a love for the human figure, use of symbolism, and an emphasis on lyric composition. His original paintings can be found in private and public collections across the country.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
