According to the Gospels of Matthew, Luke, and John from the "King James Bible." The story of Christ's death on the cross and his resurrection three days later is the central drama of Christianity. Gennady Spirin elegantly depicts the events leading up to and following the crucifixion, from Christ's entry into Jerusalem to the Last Supper to the descent of the Holy Spirit on the disciples. In the tradition of the great masters before him, Mr. Spirin pays close attention to symbolic and religious detail. He portrays Jesus as the light that came into a somber world of sin, and ends the book with the promise of the resurrection. Gennady Spirin has been described in the Boston Globe as an artist who "truly represents the picture book as an object of art." Drawing on his Orthodox Christian faith, he delivers a work of dignity and beauty.
