Jesus of Nazareth

Book cover: 'Jesus of Nazareth: The Story of His Life Simply Told'
Author(s): 
Mother Mary Loyola

"We did not see what the people of His own land saw every day, but we have the story of His life written by those who knew Him intimately, and it ought to be familiar to us all... It is of more importance to us by far than anything else we have to learn. It was written, not for mankind in general, but for each of us, one by one, that we might study it and copy its lessons into our own lives." p. 22
