Item Description...
Loss, Forgiveness and Restoration. The Face of Christ illustration and the accompanying story that has changed lives all around the globe. First, it is a true-life story of advertising executive, artist and pastor, Joe Castillo, and the way God changed him. It also tells of the many lives touched by this simple illustration. Done before a live audience the very first time, it had a powerful impact on those who watched. This motivated the artist to reproduce it in pen & ink prints. As an artist, Joe's struggle to make a living was suddenly compounded by having his wife diagnosed with cancer. They had no insurance to cover the mounting debt, but at an opportune time a friend offered to reproduce the artwork on marble plaques and pay royalties. The sales of the plaque were amazing, surely this was the answer to all their financial problems! But the story seems to grind to a halt. The friend refuses to pay royalties on the artwork that is selling world wide, and Joe loses his wife to cancer. It becomes a daily struggle to forgive the man who was profiting from his artwork, and overcome the bitterness at the loss of his wife. The plaques seems to show up everywhere compounding his anger and resentment. For Joe, it became a bitter symbol of everything that had gone wrong. If you have ever struggled with forgivness. If some events in your life just don't make sense, God can use this artwork and the story that goes with it to help you put the pieces together.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The story behind the art  Oct 4, 2005
It's really great to read the inspiring story behind this incredible piece of artwork. It sits on my coffee table and it always starts a conversation with family and friends.

Great writing and an exciting read!
An Incredible story of forgiveness!!!  Aug 13, 2005
I have to say that some thing really happpened to this author when he was willing to forgive the guy that cheated him. It really shows that we become blinded to the good that is going on in the world when we refuse to forgive.
My favorite quote is;
"Bitterness is like drinking poison and waiting for your enemy to die."

It is well worth the price just for the story but the artwork included makes it a real find!
