Many biographies of Christ's life have been published through the years, but most have lasted only a short time. This volume, first printed in 1880, continues to be in demand. The Life of Jesus Christ is known in every English-speaking country and has been translated into many foreign languages. The reasons for its continued success are not hard to find. The details of Christ's life are presented in a clear and flowing style and are molded into an easily comprehended whole. Doctrinally sound, vivid in detail, as authentic as study and research can make it, this work will long hold the place it won when first written by this noted Scottish theologian. Chapter titles are: - The Birth, Infancy, and Youth of Jesus - The Nation and the Time - The Final Stages of His Preparation - The Year of Obscurity - The Year of Public Favor - The Year of Opposition - The End Hints for Teachers and Questions for Pupils conclude this work.
