Savannah5 Stars Out Of 5Beautifully WrittenJune 17, 2017SavannahQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Ms. Linda did a very good job explaining the story in a way readers can easily understand and picture while reading. It showed me a new perspective when it comes to tragedies and my relationship with Jesus. Several situations throughout the book were those that I can personally understand in my own life, as it is shown through the character's life. This book is truly wonderfully written and is especially good for those who are struggling to make sense of something that seems so senseless in life. I say God's hand was definitely upon the author as she wrote the pages of this book :)

Dr. Thomas Hardy5 Stars Out Of 5Picture JesusJune 15, 2017Dr. Thomas HardyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In Picture Jesus, Linda Bishop brings together a lifetimes worth of study, work and care for others, into a book that offers its readers, theres no other phrase for it, a generous and gentle wisdom. By starting with issues that are familiar to most harried modern men and women and then picturing the ways that Jesus would have us approach them, she offers insights that are at once specific and transcendent. As an English teacher and occasional writer, I stand in awe of her accomplishments. Thomas Hardy, English Faculty and Curriculum writer, Keio University, Tokyo, Japan.
