About J. Kirk Richards's Art Book This Is Jesus

Book Description from Deseret Book:

The life of the Savior is portrayed in stunning fine art pieces by award-winning artist J. Kirk Richards. These striking new images were created by the artist exclusively for this book. Accompanied by a harmonized account of the Savior's ministry, Atonement, and Resurrection, these exquisite paintings reflect a deep reverence for Christ's mission and sacrifice. Each page is beautifully designed to complement the unique style of the artist. A perfect reminder of the true reason we celebrate the Easter season, this handsome volume will be treasured by the entire family for years to come.

My Review:

Pay close attention to the phrase "unique style of the artist." With harsher strokes and blurred features, it's not for everyone. Make sure to zoom in as closely as you can to determine if it's for you. The words in the book are straight from the scriptures.
