This book “Glimpses into the Silent Years of Jesus” by Mrs. Thelma Johnson describes how these “silent years” are really the formative years of His life. It is during these years that youth learn and practice religious traditions and beliefs. It is at this time that habits, interests and attitudes are determined. Ideas and skills are strengthened as youth apply them to daily routine and situations.Taking clues from psychology and using various resources such as the Bible, contemporary literature, history, Jewish religious life and culture, the author weaves a beautiful and clear pattern of the life of Jesus in these formative years. The book reads like a biography as if it is written by some on who was closely observing Jesus as a young person. It is therefore, a convincing and illuminating description of the life of One who has been the centre of History.
