Description
"I angle for
a glimpse of him
whose touch unlocks
a blind man's sight,
a deaf man's hearing."

A man in the crowd at Jerusalem vies to see Jesus; a disciple recounts details of the Last Supper; Pilate's wife fears her husband's decision. Beginning with Christ's triumphant arrival in Jerusalem, Nikki Grimes explores the first Easter through the voices of those who witnessed it.

The author's introductions provide a thoughtful framework, and David Frampton's beautifully intricate and expressive woodcuts illuminate each poem. "At Jerusalem's Gate" offers readers of all ages insight into the most important moments in Christian history.
