 Our Description

Marigold Hunt

Dear Children:

The Gospels are four very short books that tell you about our Lord's life. You can read them quite fast.

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. -Marigold Hunt



This warm retelling of the life of Christ has the lucidity and dignity that marks the best books for children.

Speaking in language that children understand (and explaining terms they don't) author Marigold Hunt begins with Adam, moves quickly through the Old Testament, and then dwells at length on Jesus Himself. Children meet Jesus in

His goodness, His suffering, and His majesty.

Hunt includes devotions from to Bible (including the Magnificat, the Song of Simeon, and the Canticle of Zachary) as well a large number of Christ's parable whose meaning she explains.

A Life of Our Lord for Children helps young children make sense of Scripture After hearing this life of Christ, they' be more interested in Jesus and more attentive when they hear these same tales right from the Gospels themselves

St. Saint Zachary

Feast Day:
Roman Rite Calendar - 03/15

    15 March
    Son of Polichronius, but little else is known of his early life. Deacon. 91st pope. First pope after Saint Gregory the Great to not seek imperial confirmation on his election. Negotiated peace between the Lombards and Greek empire. Restored the Lateran palace and many churches around Rome. Encourged the missionary work of Saint Boniface, and appointed Saint Abel as archbishop of Rheims, France. When Venetian slavers bought slaves at Rome to sell to Saracens in Africa, Zachary bought them all so that Christians should not become the property of heathens. Translated the Dialogues of Gregory the Great into Greek. Many of his actions among the royal powers of the day continued to echo for centuries.
