In this episode of the Compendium Podcast, host Joseph Baker interviews Richard Timmons.

“Come… meet Jesus” is a 154-page inspirational coffee table book featuring 67 paintings chronicling the life of Christ along with scripture from the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. It's the greatest story ever told, about the greatest person that ever lived, through the eyes of some of the world’s greatest artists. Includes works of art by Rembrandt, Caravaggio, Raphael, Muncasky, Rubens, and many more. Artist biographies included. Makes a great gift for anyone interested in art, art history, the life of Christ, or as a unique way to share the Gospel. Can be used as a devotional or in a Sunday school or book club setting. Made in the USA and ready to ship, NOT stuck on a ship!

Richard Timmons is a lifetime lover of art, especially paintings of Jesus by the masters.

In 1968, Richard married his high school sweetheart, Julie. They have three special children and one special foster son. They have 12 very special grandchildren and two very, very special great-grand babies.

Richard’s career started in the graphic arts industry and ended 45 years later when he sold his successful marketing firm. He then opened a fine art gallery, which led him to the opportunity to teach an art history class at a local college. It was Julie’s idea to create a coffee table-style book from all the research that was required to teach.

Richard is honored to present to you the incredible story of Jesus through the eyes of 67 master artists and the sacred writings found in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. You can find Richard’s book online at
