The Twelve Parables
Elena Merlino (Illustrator)
Mark Merlino (Editor)
Eight Year old Elena Merlino has vividly illustrated twelve of Our Lord's parables in this beautiful devotional children's picture book, which is intended to inspire readers of all ages. These parables were selected from the more than forty parables found in the Gospels and are arranged according to their position in salvation history.
"I pray that this book will touch the minds and hearts of all who read it and contemplate Elena's artistic works. Always remember that sacred art speaks to our hearts and souls."
-- Fr. Robert Cross, Diocese of Geraldton, Western Australia
It gives me great pleasure to recommend this version of Our Lord's parables. Elena has succeeded in drawing some very effective and powerful depictions of these foundational gospel instructions. May this book inspire many to learn once again the lessons of slavation Jesus gave in these parables."
