SEA CLIFF, New York, April 1, 2012 /Christian Newswire
/ — Point Literary, a high-quality independent e-book publisher, announces the release of The Life of Jesus: Through the Eyes of the Masters
, an interactive e-book recounting major events in the life of Christ. Twenty artistic masterpieces dating from the third to the twentieth centuries, by great masters of western art–da Vinci, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, and others–give life to biblical stories. Beginning with the Annunciation of Mary and the birth of her son in Bethlehem, The Life of Jesus
depicts his childhood exile in Egypt, his baptism, ministry, and the miracles attributed to him, followed by his triumphant Palm Sunday return to Jerusalem, Crucifixion, and Resurrection.
“We invite you to take an exciting and enjoyable trip with us back through the ages, as we recapture the throbbing intensity and drama of the life of Jesus of Nazareth.”– from the Introduction
The Life of Jesus: Through the Eyes of the Masters encourages readers to explore the artworks in great detail by following links to the Google Art Project, YouTube, and other virtual spaces, including newly hosted digital exhibitions offered by the world’s museums, allowing readers to interact with and experience these masterpieces as never before possible!
The Life of Jesus: Through the Eyes of the Masters was conceived for the new short e-book genre, also known as “minibooks” or “e-book singles.” As a short art book recounting the life of the central figure in Christianity, it’s designed to appeal to art lovers and unconventional and nonconformist believers, in addition to the traditional Christian readership.
One third of net sales from The Life of Jesus: Through the Eyes of the Masters will be donated to charitable causes including the preservation of art, architecture, and nature.
