Jesus often told stories using everyday objects to help his listeners understand life with God. But for most of us, the deep imagery and meaning behind those objects has been lost to history. This book helps kids discover the world Jesus lived in through maps, charts, graphs, and other infographic elements. They'll learn about the culture Jesus lived in-his Jewish religion, the power of the ruling Roman Empire, the role of fishermen and carpenters and shepherds. It's an invitation to explore the stories of Jesus in their cultural context, bringing new life to familiar biblical events. This beautifully illustrated book will be a family favorite that kids and adults will come back to over and over again.

Marc Olson lives in St Paul, Minnesota with his son, Sigurd, and their Basset Hound, Bruce. As an educator, Marc enjoys teaching and writing about the sacraments and the Bible, as well as studying the lives of the early Christian church. He also drives a garbage truck.
