"What is the Jesus Deck?
For the first time a series of fifty-four magnificent paintings are reproduced in a playing card deck depicting the persons, events and places in the drama of the life of Jesus. Rendered by commissioned artist, William Atkins, The Jesus Deck is divided into four suits representing the four gospel writers. Each suit vividly portrays one aspect of Jesus' life:
Luke - Birth and Childhood
Matthew - Teachings
Mark - Passion and Death
John - Resurrection
The Jesus Deck is a new visual concept widely acclaimed by laymen and clergy of all denominations. Each card beautifully illustrates in picture and verse a significant episode in the life of Jesus. Marvelously conceived, The Jesus Deck is faithfully reproduced in full color with dignity and elegance. A collector's deck of everlasting value for the entire family.
Conceived and produced by an outstanding team of leading educators and communicators. Inspirational and instructive. For all ages.
The Jesus Deck is especially suited for inspirational solitaire and other popular group games. Enrich your daily life through the beauty and inspiration of The Jesus Deck.
