Following A Savior Is Born: Rocks Tell the Story of Christmas, Rokus offers a visual narrative of Jesus's crucifixion and resurrection through artful arrangements of stones, with scripture verses appearing throughout. The figure of Jesus is crafted with a round, stone head, and shapely rocks form his sweeping robe: 'Jesus came to earth to bring healing and joy to all who follow Him, and to lead us home to God.' Rokus represents 'people who wanted to kill Him' as sinister stone faces with angry, slanted eyebrows and open mouths. Other scenes depict Jesus riding a stone donkey, washing the disciples' feet, on the cross, and his resurrection: 'After three days, Jesus came back to life! We will all live again because He conquered death.' An inventive and moving telling of the Easter story. Ages 4--8.
